Did you know that Alan Alda from the Mash series had a brush with death and a large section of his intestines removed! I read it in his book "Things I Learned While Talking to Myself", or some such title. I got all excited to and my husband still asks me have I emailed him yet. I did do that once after reading a book on local genealogy...emailed the author and he actually responded! This would not be out of character for me!
I figure after I get over my cynical attitude about my Rheumy visit, I'll send the monkeys out on the Rheumy and go pick the Ortho's brain. I fully expect the Rheumy to tell me it's all in my head just because it seems it's always been an uphill battle for me to get properly diagnosed...however, I'm learning which toad and what warts pretty fast!
