Hello everyone,
Well I think I'm all ready for this appointment today. Took my own advice that I continually pass along on writing everything down. (reinforced by a good person on board here also) I put it into words for my new doctor so they understand where I'm coming from and where I intend to go on my coarse of disease. I usually ask the nurse to have the dr. read this before they enter the room for my appointment. It works well....they know me better. I sometimes wonder (because of the volume of patients in a days time) if they even get a second or two to actually read the charts. I know they have the logistics but I want them to know the person. I'm going in with a positive and yet realistic attitude. Asking for positive thoughts and all prayers are welcome today ! Will be thinking of all my fellow warriors today...and know you have my back. Thanks everyone ! Katie

and sending positive thoughts and prayers your way for this day. You're right about the information that the Dr.'s have...the easy info (stats, logistics, numbers), but knowing the person they are treating to complete the picture is also so important. Once they get a feel for your kick-a** personality, the Dr. will know he's got a partner work with, not just a number to "work on"....

Let us know how things went today....

You and I are on the same road. Of course, I wish neither of us are on it. I'll put my stuff in its own thread rather than hijacking yours. Rick.
