Today, was the big day-at least I thought it was going to be. The long-awaited visit with the doctor I have been harping on finally arrived. I was ready to begin working towards resolving some bothersome health issues. However, as seems often to be the case in my life, nothing went as I was expecting. Maybe this is a lesson not to have expectations, and then there will be no disappointment.
The early morning traffic was heavier than we had expected. I was there, not to see the original Dr. I had planned on, but an alternative. He was out for some time. After listening to my history,
she kept reiterating, I was in the wrong place. She had no idea why I was referred there, etc. etc.
However, she did make an effort to help find the correct facility. I was not seeking treatment for pain, but for underlying issues.
I spoke with their counselor, and learned some interesting things. She was the most helpful.
I was given an order for an MRI and told to report back with them in five days. I was scheduled with another Doctor. As I was making the appointment for the MRI I was told it was done incorrectly and needed to be resent. Meanwhile, I was called by the office and the Doctor I was referred to instructed me to see the original Dr. I planned to see. He has the most experience, and in some way things worked out that I should see him after all.
What a day of running in circles. The MRI has been scheduled, and I am re-considering my current physicians. Meanwhile, it is again wait and see. I hate to go through it all again, but I suppose that is all I can do. Treatment will take some time, if I ever get it, so meanwhile, I
will still be creeping along.
I get so far behind, but I appreciate so much each and every gesture from my wonderful Spark Friends.
Bottom line: what is is.
