HEALTH UP-DATE - BUSY, BUSY, BUSY
Tuesday, June 11, 2013
I finally saw my doctor, and he told me that after all the tests I had been through, that my cardiologist said I have an extra heart beat, and he wants to put me on a beta blocker to regulate my heartbeat. My doctor does not like beta blockers, but he did prescribe them for me. I am not having any problems with taking them, so I guess they're doing what they are supposed to be doing. I have not been too happy with my regular doctor of late, though. He doesn't always listen to me when I tell him things, and the last time I was there I asked for all my prescriptions for 6 months so I could give them to my pharmacy. My pharmacy delivers to me and I generally order a two-month supply at a time. He did give me all my prescriptions for 6 months, but he made a mistake on the dosage of two of them. It is a good thing I have such a good pharmacist, as he caught the errors and asked me about them. He then said he would call my doctor's office and make sure everything was okay for when I had to order the medication. That is not the first time my doctor has made a mistake on the dosage. I am going to call Health Links and see if they can give me the name of a doctor who is accepting new patients. I have been praying about this, and I feel that if God wants me to find a new doctor He will help me with it. I'll see how things work out.
Thank goodness things are winding down for the summer. I have been so busy, I don't know what I am doing. I need a break. We had our Ladies' Bible Study Potluck tonight as our windup for the summer. Thursday is the last day I will babysit for the young moms until September, and this Thursday evening is our last Small Group Bible Study until the Fall. That will give me more time to myself. I am trying to learn all I need to learn about our church library as I am taking over the leadership roll of it. I need to spend some extra time in the library this week getting some things done. The staff of our church is going to moving to another building where they have new offices, and there won't be anyone in the actual church building during the day, so I won't be able to go and do the extra work there soon. The lady I am taking over from is moving away to another province on July 3, so I have to make sure I learn everything she has to teach me before then. I have been so busy that I forgot that I was supposed to serve in the library this past Sunday. Pretty good for the leader, eh?
On top of that, I have to come up with a bible study for Thursday on Prayer. I have never taught a bible study before, so I don't know how well I am going to do. Thank goodness there are only 6 of us in the group, so it's not for a large number of people. There is just a lot on my plate right now. Hopefully things will settle down so that I can catch my breath soon. I think it's time I had a few days away again. Maybe I'll see if I can do that next month.
