Well, it’s Week 23 of a year, participating with Bernadette of Haddon Musings, recognizing things we are thankful for hoping to offset the more negative areas in our life and in the world.
This week I want to say how thankful I am for the doctors in our country, and more specifically that I have been seeing over the past couple of years.
I’ve had a few challenges physically speaking, and I am so grateful for doctors who listen… and care enough to keep trying to find the answers. It’s sometimes frustrating; the ‘well let’s try this’ or ‘that’ etc. The point is; they don’t give up. Tests yes, I can do whatever they ask, because I know that it’s necessary for diagnostic purposes.
Canada, and Ontario where I am specifically, is fortunate to have a healthcare system, while not perfect.. is none-the-less I believe very good. Yes, there are sometimes long waits for specialist appointments, but usually only if it’s not an emergency situation.
So, today I say thanks to the doctors and nurses that strive to do the best that they can, to help those with physical needs.
