I was quite surprised to not only be able to get an appointment with my Gastroenterologist this Friday, but I was also able to get one with my Neurologist next Tuesday. The Neurologist appointment really surprised me, as I know how long I’ve had to wait before to get one. I must have lucked up on one somebody had canceled, but I’m thankful for it, regardless of how I got it.
I’m hoping that, between the two appointments, a definite solution to my stomach problems can be found, and I also need to have a different sleep aide prescription besides Ambien.
The Friday appointment won’t be a problem, because Frances comes on Friday’s anyway, but I’m just keeping my fingers crossed that she can come on Tuesday. She’s out of town right now, so I’ll have to call tomorrow to work out the details. If she can’t, then I’ll have to start calling church members to find somebody who can sit with Daddy for us.
I want to thank you, friends, who put up with my daily moans and groans, to give me an encouraging word. I really need that encouragement right now. Our situation with Daddy has settled into pretty much of a routine, but there are still a lot of questions about what the future will hold. It’s hard to imagine that he will recuperate from this episode and be able to live by himself again. But I keep reminding myself that he’s “graduated” from Hospice once before. He really is amazing! Cantankerous, but amazing!!!
