I saw a new doctor this past Friday. He was in Atlanta, GA....so much closer that Virginia!!
He was very nice and appreciated the fact that I had my Mom (and main caregiver) come back with me. (Something that not all doctors appreciate.) He didn't have any magic cure or ground breaking news to share but he was kind, honest and understanding....that is all I can ask for.
I was quite relieved that the appointment went well. I don't think that I am going to be able to continue to see my doctor in Virginia. The past few visits have been less than lack-luster and are not making an expensive, 13 hour trip very sensible at this point. So, needless to say, I am in desperate need of a doctor. We will see if this new doctor fits the bill until then I have hope in this new doctor-patient relationship.
I appreciated this doctor's honesty. Unfortunately, there is really nothing that he or anyone else can do for me right now. I just have to wait. Wait for my body to try and figure itself out and heal on its own. I know from the past, that this is possible but it is so hard to wait and not be able to be "fixed".
In other news, my friend Kristen and I are doing a bible study together via email. We realized that we were using the same devotional, Streams in the Desert. Kristen suggested that we do it together. I am so glad she did. We only started a few days ago but already I feel so blessed by our daily emails and prayers together.
I thought this was cute. Holly joins me during quiet time. :) And please excuse her appreance! She is in need of a good face washing and brushing!
