Someone left the door open and a bit of Winter crept in. It was in the 40’s this morning and of course today we met with the Surgeon. Haven’t even had a proper cup of tea yet.
Let me back up for a second. At my eye visit when the tech asked how my vision was and I just shrugged, she pointed out my shoes were on the wrong feet. I asked Tommy before we left is I was okay and he said yes. I was walking in there like I owned the place with shoes on the wrong feet. So this morning I double checked!
Now we wait for our Cardiologist to sign off on the surgery, which he already said he would do, and then find out when Tommy is having surgery. This is the first time any of the doctors have asked him to drop his pants so they could feel the mass. That made me feel better. When he said he’d never done this before,it made me feel worse. But it’s Tommy’s decision in the end and I have to keep my mouth shut. This morning he told me to keep my mouth shut at the appointment. It was so hard I bit my lip and made it bleed. I had questions. Where did you get your medical degree ( a dental school). Where did you practice before? Why did you leave Saudi Arabia? I already knew the answers, but I wasn’t allowed to grill him. So I’m not talking about it anymore.
I just received a call from the patient. He called Dr. Hawkins, the cardiologist, and is getting in to see his Ortho guy at OU. The nurse was livid his blood pressure was 258 over 152 and they released him! Now I feel so much better and I love him so much for listening to my concerns and not wanting to be a guinea pig for the other doctor.
Plus there is a Starbucks at OU. The Baptists don’t even have a cafe’! It all will work out in the end. Now I’m going to brew a pot of Apple Spice Tea and have what Corbin calls second breakfast.
