Well I have been calling the doctor's office today and they said I would hear something today.  At 2:00 I get a call from one of the office representatives stating that the doctor needs to see me TOMORROW at 8am.  I said Please can I come today, I'm going out of my mind with worry and he said, no, the doctor is leaving today at 2:45.  By all means, lets not inconvenience the good old doctor.
 
So another night of not knowing.  The fact that he has to discuss it with me makes me feel that there may be something to worry about.  I don't know, I may be jumping to conclusions.  Anyway, I went to the grocery store afterwards and nearly had a panic attack.  I guess the stress is just getting to me.  I thought I was stronger than this.  I need to settle down and have faith.  It's what I tell everybody else to do.  I need to take my own advice.  So that's what I will do with the rest of my evening until I can fall asleep.
 
After this appointment tomorrow, I have an appointment with my pain management doctor too.  It's going to be a busy day.  Keep a good thought for me all you wonderful people.  As soon as I know what's up I will jump on here and post.  I know you all have been with me through all of this.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Lindaloo,

OooOOooOOO! Oh! I just hate it when the doctors do that. Annoying as all get out and WORSE never anything over the phone. My doctors to this thing where they send me to my GP to hear bad news , then my GP tlaks to me about whats going on and why I have to go (insert new dr office all the way the heck in albuquerque). *sigh* And I just love the ONE sentence "Need to run more test before we decide anything." Oh yea oh yea great thanks! Yea lemme just apply for permanant residency at your lil blood draw clinic hua? Go out for breakfeast with the duel weilding phelobotomists so I can feel like I atleast know they names. I know, how bout I just wear a Tee-Shirt that says "Excess blood for pickins!" guys must have about 2 gallons of blood yet still require more! Put ann rice to shame!
... okay odd little rant there
and on that note ..
In prayers
*huggs*

Lndaloo,
I wanted to sign on and see if you had posted. I don't think the medical community gets that we would probably rather hear something - anything - over the phone than told the doctor wants to see you tomorrow at 8am! And it may be just to schedule another test or something and you'll be put through a night of misery.

I hope whatever you hear will be that it's nothing, or something that needs to be watched a little, or at the very worst something that has been caught very early. I know it's scary waiting. I feel so helpless, but at least once you know you can get to work solving it. And you will - whatever it is. But too many times I've jumped to worst case scenario thoughts in my mind only to be told it was basically nothing but the doctor wanted to tell me in person.

I will be looking for your posts tomorrow.

((((((((LIndaloo))))))))))))

((((((((((((((((Linda))))))))))))))))))))). I'm so sorry that they are making you wait AGAIN!!! You poor thing! I know that I'd be absolutely terrified. But I shouldn't tell you that, because it won't help any. You go relax. Get a nice warm cup of tea, get all snuggly in your PJ's & read a good book or watch a movie to get your mind off of things. I wish you sweet, sweet dreams & a restful night's sleep. Either way, at least you will know something tomorrow. Knowledge is power. It may not lead you to the road that you want to take, but at least you can go somewhere & will no longer have to sit in waiting. I've been praying for you & I'm not about to stop anytime soon! I wish you only the best!!

many hugs,
Skeye

LL, I just drove my little zoom car 85mph up the deadly US#95, ran in the house, turned on my pc and went staight here to see if you had heard anything! Oh these dr's, I could just scream! I for one think you should call the dr's office, get the phone service or leave a message and tell this freaking guy just how you feel and about what you are going through because of him or his staff! Tell him about the panic attack and ask him what's next, a heart attack??? Maybe if he has one shred of compassion he will call you back tonight and if not at least he will be aware of whats going on! He might not even know or forgot! It may be all the nurses or scheduling people in the office trying to free him up a little. If he knew how upset you were, maybe he would call tyou!!!! I'm sure you are not his first patiant who this has happened to and I'm sure others HAVE called him on the same thing!!!
OK, I'll get off my soap box now, but please concider calling! What do you have to loose???
Your noisy brother,

Thanks Pete, for the compassion you always show. I had planned to go in the office today and give him a piece of my mind, but I realized it wouldn't have done any good in this case. I am just going to find another doctor I think and see if I have better luck in the future with a doctor that has more compassion. I'm sure that had it been his wife, she wouldn't have had to wait two days though that's for sure!!!

Oh well. You are a true friend. Thanks for standing by me. So relieved the news is good now. God bless you Pete.
