Laswell, I'm with Biker. Take a day to let things settle in. Go out and have a nice meal and some wine.
Then, put it in the hands of the higher power and your decision may come to you.
I'm no holy roller, but when I was at the crossroads (very scared and confused) I put it in the hands of God one night and my path arrived the next day. Before I knew it, surgery was over and healing was underway. I've never looked back on my treatment/doctor decisions.
Best to ya.
You'll be fine.
