Sheldon, I am definitely not casting doubt on your report or your doctor, my remark was meant to be generalized and generic for sure, that's the trouble with saying what you are thinking sometimes.
I should have asked my dr. at the time, is this all there is to the report? Referring to the original one page I was shown. My mistake, at the time I wouldn't have known how many pages there might have been, having never seen one before.
You got a good report, and again, I pray and hope it stays that way for you. You have been through quite a bit yourself. Yeah, bet that Ramada Inn even if you stayed in the penthouse suite would have been cheaper than my 4 days in a regular hospital!
Best to you brother, in your healing ahead.
