Good morning everybody. I am still kicking, no thanks to some of the medical profession. I am finally on a different med. My BP is running high with this but I shudder at the thought of calling the doctor’s office again. We are just a number and a paycheck to them and sad to say not one doctor in a hundred actually gives a piddleyfart about your well being. Jim and I once had a doctor that cared. I will even go so far as to name this doctor. His name was Dr. Barnett and he was a gastroenterologist who also took other patients. His patient load (I read this in the paper after he moved out of state) was over 3000. This never stopped him from giving you the time needed in an office call. I remember when I had pneumonia in 1998 at Christmas time. I had been feeling tough for a week or so and had gone to see the doctor. I had a chest X-ray and the radiologist had informed the doctor that my lungs were clear. One week later I was in the hospital fighting for my life, the doctors not finding an antibiotic that would work. I can remember this doctor bellowing at the top of his lungs about the person that had read the previous X-ray. This doctor once told Jim and me that we were ‘the cream of the crop.’ Now I have doctors that are afraid of stepping on each other’s toes and cover each others back.
Whew, that was a long rant! lol
It poured rain all day yesterday. I got out to the grocery stores and to the bank and got totally soaked. Not a good hair day at all Twin. Some parts of this area received about 5 inches of rain. Sure glad that wasn’t snow or freezing rain.
It is nice this morning. The sun is shining and it is 36 degrees right now to warm up to the mid 50s.
The weekend is here. I hope you all have something great planned. Do stay safe and be happy! Thank you all again for keeping my family in your thoughts and prayers.
