Boy oh boy God is giving me some more lessons - let's see what I can do with them. I need to practice what I preach. I want to sit down and cry, but I can't.
Let me say this - I know you all are praying because I feel incredibly strong and peaceful. I cannot begin to thank you for that. I can't keep up with the emails or your posts right now - I am so sorry.
I THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR STAYING WITH ME AND PRAYING FOR US. (POSITIVE)
Rick came home yesterday. Now my sister said whatever you do don't let him go home. They pushed - said he wouldn't catch as many germs - he'd just be sitting there board - that he would be happier at home. (POSITIVE)
This was from his Dr. Christopher Tomaras at Northside Hospital. He said , "Just call and make an appointment for next week."
I said, "You mean just call and they can put him in in a seconds notice?"
The doctor said, "Yes."
Now I am not going to make any comments here, but give you the facts.
Now he would - I assume - have to know the age of his patient. Right? He should anyway. Rick is 65 so it would be safe to assume he is on medicare. I think.
Get home. Call to set up an appointment.
He does not accept medicare - there are 3 other doctors in his practice - two do not accept Medicare - one does - but he works on SPINES!!!!!!!!!!!
I call back to Rick's primary Dr. who is wonderful by the way. (POSITIVE)
He gives me two names at Emory.
They can't see him until Wednesday.
Now my daughter has been great. My son is telling me what to do via the phone and I think he thinks I'm failing here. I know he is so worried about his ad - he's a pediatric cardiologist and can't leave his patients.
So I am feeling sunk. I have called back now to his primary care doctor to see what the heck I am supposed to do.
Thank you Kelly, I am so sorry Carmen I didn't listen to you - because I am thinking and I don't know this - that IF he had stayed - someone would have had to operate. And her Godson is 13 and they just found out he has malignant cancer. Just a baby.
And thank you guys for all you prayers and emails. I could use more. But I do know there are sooooooooooooooo many others out there that need them too. (POSITIVE)
I have my husband home with bilateral para (something) hemotomas and no where to go or what to do.
I NEVER AM POLITICAL on my blog - but I think this is Obama care for us oldies.
My help for you today is to be careful and don't be dumb like is,
And I am saying prayers for ALL OF US! God be will us. Let's remember the promises above He gave to us. (POSITIVE)
I love y'all! (POSITIVE) - so I am going to chose to think about these things and work like heck on the other.
