Good news and bad news

Saturday, November 09, 2013

The appointment with the doctor yesterday went well abate a 3 hour time frame from when we walked in the door and then left. Geez, not sure I could ever get used to all the wait time in the states. The appointment cost $125 but I got all the scripts I needed so am good to go on staying.

The bad news is that my doctor who is the same doctor for my FIL has emailed me and told me that my FIL is very sick and they want to put him in the hospital. They have had him on IV for several days now and now they want to do a transfusion and colonoscopy as he has had bleeding from his colon. It could be as simple as hemorrhoids internally or something else. He is also seeing my GI guy whom I love and will be under his care. We just got off the phone with him and he doesn't want us to fly home as he feels he is getting great care. As I said I have been in touch with both his private nurse and his doctor. I have asked them if I should come home. Wouldn't that be crazy after all I went through to finally get the meds. Geez!

Anyway all thoughts and prayers are appreciated for my FIL that things go well and we don't have to fly home.

I do hope you all are doing well and having a great week end.

    Glad you got your medicines at least. The hours, days, months and years I have spent waiting for health care here. Due to wait lists though. I would have thought it would be better in an user pay for health care system, but then some people have to go through insurance approval and then that is more waiting there.
That your FIL is being so closely monitored is reassuring. There is nothing you personally can do to help him except wait for the outcome, so try to enjoy your time with the grandkids as best you can without stressing yourself out over his condition. Stress makes us ill too :(
Healing, soothing thoughts and prayers for your FIL and comforting hugs for you and DH.

    Hoping your father in law overcomes this latest health challenge. Enjoy your grandkids while you can. Wait times are just one of the very frustrating things about health care in the US. Take care, Sallie. Thanks for your support on my blog, too!
