Update On My Doctor Appointment


Hello my friends, praying that you all enjoyed your day. Well, I had an appointment with a new Doctor this morning. God truly sent her my way, she is such a dear. The entire staff at her office are all such sweeties. Lovebug was off, so he got to go with me. Of course, that made me smile. My appointment was at 9:30, we did not get out of there until 12:30. I have a bad sinus infection, and also a kidney infection. She is doing alot of blood work on me, they took several tubes of blood. She is checking my thyroid levels, all my hormone levels, my cholesterol levels, my diabetes, and some other things. She is scheduling a stress test and echo cardiogram on my heart. She thinks my blockages might have gotten worse. She did an EKG on me today, there were some changes. She put me on another blood pressure medicine, and medicine for the nerve damage in my stomach. Well, that is all I know so far. I love you all, and will continue to keep you updated.

Oh boy....sounds like, to me, that she will be a very thorough and HELPFUL doctor. Much better than most. You have a good find there Denise!! I'd say keep her.

I'm glad to read your report and that you liked this doctor. That relationship is so important. I was also glad to see how comprehensive she is being in ordering the ECHO and stress, bloodwork, etc. That will give her more info to help you. I'll be praying for you.

Denise,

It sounds like your new doctor is looking into everything and is being very thorough--and this is good!!

And know that you are in the hands of the Great Physician--Jesus--I will pray for you--for this new doctor to be granted the wisdom and guidance of God in her treatment of you and all of her patients.

So happy to see that your Love Dare is moving along in good directions, too!! I'm working along--doing all 3 kids at once is a little overwhelming sometimes, but is definitely worth the effort!

Glad to hear that you had an awesome experience with a new doctor. If one is going to go to the doctor, it helps when we're comfortable with 'em, huh? I hope that you see some great positive results after all the test(s) and also with your medication being changed.

Bless you!

I'm just catching up now to your blogs. I'm happy you have found a good doctor. They are out there but it seems they are few and far between at times. I hope you enjoy the rest of our weekend and enjoy your day of rest. :)

I am glad you are having a good workup. Sometimes when your thyroid is messed up you will have chest pain or unusual "heart" issues. I pray they get to the bottom of it soon and that you will feel well ASAP.
God bless,

It means so much to have a doctor you feel confident with. I have to find one here or try to get back in with the one I used before 2003.
Hopefully she'll work out a plan for you that will improve your health. I'm hoping your sinus infection goes away quickly. They can make you fell terrible.
Love you girl,
Mama Bear
