This week is just hard and probably going to get harder. I can’t really talk about that just now, instead I’m going to talk about the one positive thing that did happen (so far).
So I went into my doctor yesterday and told him that I could not get into the ENT until mid November. Then I showed him my throat (this all part of the previous nosebleeds I’ve had). My doctor was not pleased, but he did explain about the shortage of ENTs in our area. Then he told me to wait, went into his office and called the ENT’s office to tell them I needed to be seen sooner.
They wouldn’t even put me on a list to call in case there’s a cancellation. Not even with my doctor personally calling with his concerns. To make this even more upsetting, I’ve been at that ENT’s office a couple times before so I’m not a new patient.
My doctor then called two other ENT’s offices to see if they could get me in. They can’t see any new patients until January.
For the record, I could hear my doctor making these calls, so I know he how hard he tried and that made a frustrating situation better. I truly appreciate it. It may seem like a small thing, but when we’re a little worried, the small things really matter. It also helps that if I need advice, I can call this doctor and he’ll call me back to help as best he can.
Oh and also, my knee pain that I assumed was arthritis, he said it’s a sore ligament that will heal. So that’s two positive things I can keep exercising as the knee tolerates it and not worry too much about it.
What’s a positive thing in your week?
