Early Doc appointment

                     

     So they finally called around 4 and told me to come in to see the doc at 8 am.  She read the report to me, but nurse or no nurse I wasn't sure what it meant.   Edema I understood, no fracture, good....decreased cartilage?   Is it just arthritis.  So I ask, should I where my uniform because I will have to go to work if he doesn't lift my restriction tomorrow.  Yes, wear your uniform.  So he isn't releasing me yet?  I don't know.   Crap.

   So I go to bed early.  Be at the docs at 8 am.  Wearing my uniform because if he doesn't release me I have to do my light duty job for 10 hours.  Why couldn't I just talk to the doc so I know for sure.  Man.  I hate not knowing but I will tomorrow.  Time to meditate and go to bed.

There is nothing quite like the unknown when it comes to your own body and health.  I know you are chomping at the bit to find out what the deal is.  I'll be thinking of you.

I wish these people would realize stressing you like this isn't going to make you bounce back any easier. (Hugs) Indigo

Good luck with the doc Julie, the worse bit for you is the not knowing. I just hope your knee is something they can repair. I love the pic of the horse! Jeannette xx

I hate when you have to build up a relationship with the doctors crew so you might be told info earlier than an appointment! They don't make their money if you don't walk in the door of his office! Oh well...sad but things are not the way they use to be! Do they still give you a lower bill if you wear your uniform? Professional courtesy? They use to ages ago when I use to go to the appts. right after work! <11-7 graveyard>
You are in my prayers and I hope it's nothing really serious, Big Hugs Doreen :))))
