Hi guys

I just had to come and tell you my good news. The referral I was waiting for to see the specialist in hospital has come through.
Woohoo :-) I got a phone call today for them to make an appointment with me to see the consultant neurologist and guess what its on Tuesday at 2pm. Keep your fingerscrossed for me guys that it all goes well and they can help me. I am so happy even though I am having a very high pain day today. Hope you are all having a low pain day, loads of (((((hugs)))))

Hi Sue...
So glad your referral came and you got an appointment - that's great news!!  Anything that furthers our care and opens new doors for any of us is a good thing.  yeah
I will definitely pray that they can help you.
I'm w/ SE - even in the midst of high pain - you can hear your positive outlook on things... and I think that plays a part, too, in feeling better.
Looking forward to hearing how your appointment goes.  Hang in there until Tuesday, Sue....

Oh Sue that's great new!! I will be praying that the doctor can help you with your pain. Thanks for sharing your good news. When good things happen, it does make us feel a bit better, doesn't it? I sure hope you can get some low pain days between now and Tuesday. You take care.

Yay for appointment dates!!! I live in Canada and we often have long waits to see specialists, etc. so whenever I read a story about someone finally getting an appointment they've been waiting for...I get SUPER excited for them!!

I hope this appointment will help your doctors determine what needs to be done to help you regain your health. I hope you get more answers than questions, and that things will happen quickly for you. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers!
