Shoulder to Shoulder, part 2
this is the super-fun strap thing my wife has wear
So this morning we woke up, had some breakfast, and called the doctor.
“We’ll give you a call soon, we’re still finding a specialist for you.”
Ok, I’m glad they’re trying.
Noon. After spending the morning realizing her pain is steadily getting worse and her arm is still swollen, I convince my wife to ask the doctor (upon our next call) about getting a stronger pain killer.
“Just take triple the dosage every six hours. And we can’t get you in to a specialist until Thursday.”
Our doctors have always taken good care of us, and when we’ve gone to a specialist who didn’t we quickly found another who did. I know they’re doing the best they can, and I know our health care system is in the dumps.
But it still sucks having to spend two days on a couch in pain.
More news (hopefully of the better variety) will follow…
