I finally got to talk to ma's dr.

Wednesday, June 15, 2011

I did it! I did it! Yesterday I was supposed to take ma to the hospital for her tests but in the morning she called to say since it wasn't raining I didn't have to come over-dad was going to doggie sit because Maggie is afraid of the thunder. I was thinking to myself great, I can do some work in the basement now it's dry, go through more of my books see what else to get rid of, etc. But I told her that I'll be over anyway.

They left and it was me and the girls. I brought over my book because I've got to catch up on my reading. I'm reading Heat Wave by Richard Castle. The same Richard Castle as on the T.V. series. It's only 198 pages and I should have been done with it a long time ago.

I watched Perry Mason when the phone rings and it's dad's dr. His tests were fine, yada-yada. Then I was watching a couple episodes of Heat of the Night when the phone rang again and it was Dr Butler but for dad, he sees her too. I told her he wan't home he took ma to the hospital for her stress test and heart monitor. I then started to tell her all about the weekend with ma, her high BP, how sick she was, how I could tell she lost weight, she's afraid to eat, how long this lasted, the whole nine-yards!! Even that I stayed overnight to stay with her. Told her all I could. Even about ma's ulcer years ago. Even that she has an appt with Dr. Patel-the gas, intestinal dr.-which is Friday and dr. Butler was glad about that. She asked when she's going to see her cardiologist and I said Rowen with a bit of hardness in my voice, not for another month.

But I was glad to talk to Dr. Butler to let her know what happened this weekend. I'm thinking should I tell ma because sometimes she gets mad because the likes to hold back some things and I don't. Well they got back and I gave the messages to dad. They went shopping and after the groceries were put away and dad was downstairs, I told ma I talked to Butler and told her about the weekend. She was glad I did. And we both know that when dad would call her back, he wouldn't say anything anyway.

I was hoping to get a chance to talk to the Dr. I was even thinking of calling her myself. Now I don't have to. But I know I do want to go with ma to see the new dr on Friday, the gas. intestinal one. Another dr to meet & greet. And add to the list. Hope this one could help with her eating, of should I say, her fear of eating.

Good to hear you spoke to the doc, let's hope you get a chance to talk to the gastro one.

Did Dr Butler tell you what she thought it may be?
