thursday's update

So, I went back to the Dr today and she doesn't really understand what's going on with me because she says everything on the inside looks and feels ok (different diagnosis than the Dr on Mon, but he wasn't my normal Dr AND I've been on antibiotics since then). Thankfully, I am feeling much better. I feel almost back to normal today with the obvious limitations of moving around too fast or too much, but for the first time in over a week I actually have color in my checks and somewhat of an appetite! WOOHOO!!!!! I was still running a low grade fever when I was in the Dr's office today and my blood pressure is pretty low, so she's having me come back on Monday to recheck things out. She also ran a white cell count which I assume they will call me and let me know about. She is trying to find out if I've got some kind of silent infection going on, but I don't think so. I think the antibiotic I took did the trick mostly and maybe the fever has taken care of the rest. She is such a great Dr. I know I am in great hands and her apology for me not being able to see her on Monday was so sincere (she doesn't see patients when she does surgeries.) She also told me she is on call this weekend so if I start running another fever or my pain gets worse she wants me to call her and tell the answering service she said for me to call her) I could ask for no more from a Dr. She even remembers that I am a quilter. In spite of all the problems I have had I still feel like I have finally found the Dr I have been looking for all these years. I wish she was taking new patients so I could recommend all my friends to her. So, I'm feeling like I am back on the mend and back on track and this girl will be back on the dance floor in the 6 weeks promised! (fingers crossed)
