Well, my appointment today brought some satisfaction but there are still some unknown factors.
I prayed before I went … if nothing else that the doctor would not ‘brush me off’ and make light of how I’m feeling. When I first went in he didn’t seem to think that too much could be done to change things, but when I told him that I couldn’t go on the way things were… not sleeping in bed because of the gagging and choking when I lay down, he paused. I guess the fact that I was tearing up, made him realize that he had to try something. So, he spent a few minutes looking on his computer, looking for a possible .. better medication than I was on. He hummed and hawed a bit, trying to decide and was going to give me two, but then decided on just one for now.
He wants to wait until I have the other test on June 13th to see what turns up. He said he thinks he knows what it will show, and if it does there may be some surgery necessary, but it depends on the results. So he said to ‘try’ this new medication until after the test and he gets the results, which of course he said takes time.
I’ll see him the middle of July! In the meantime he said to take this new med before supper and before bedtime, as the problem is of course with sleeping. And so I will hope that there will be some improvement and I will maybe be able to try laying down….
I guess we shall see. I was encouraged that he at least really listened and seemed to at least be trying! Thanks again for thoughts and prayers!
I’m going to put a couple of pictures up that I painted for my son and daughter-in-law, as they have a cottage and when they saw the other birds I painted, they asked if I could do 2 for them with birds and flowers in yellow and turquoise blue….. maybe a finch my son said. I said I would try, but if they weren’t what they really wanted they could just hide them and put them up if we happened to go up…ha! I haven’t showed them yet to them, and if they want they can just keep them as a memento. (the color doesn’t show up exactly accurate… as I the lighting I took the pictures in was not quite right)
