Florida's Foreverly Shores
I have regained some of my strength and was released from the rehabilitation center this afternoon.
On the way home we stopped to see Dr. Gilliard, who is my local pulmonary doctor~
I really do like this doctor, he listens closely and is very positive in his approach to finding out what is wrong.
*I will be on home health care, and rehab for a period of time, until we get some of the upcoming doctor's appointments under our belts and try to find some answers as to my 'condition' on several medical fronts~
*I will then be seen by a Hematologist (blood specialist) for a consultation on some unusual readings on some of my blood work tests~
*I have been accepted at Shands Hospital in Gainesville, FL, at their new pulmonary clinic, and will be seen for consultation on July 10th, on an outpatient basis, with outpatient testing and whatever else they feel is necessary to get some sort of definitive diagnosis on the lung 'shadows'/infection or whatever~
Biopsies from Barnes Hospital and from Mayo Clinic and the local hospital show absolutely no suspicion of malignancy whatsoever~
*I got established with an endocrinologist on a thyroid issue,and will have several scans and specific blood tests performed at the local hospitalon July 16 and 17.
*'If' necessary, we have also scheduled an tentative appointment with a 'back-up' Pulmonary Specialist consultation on July 30.
Each day is a challenge ... and with my faith and your prayers, I am confident that I will return to good health~
Whew ... dearest friends ... I haven't gotten back in touch with you ... just know that it's because I just haven't had the stamina to do so~
Thank you all for being here for me ... you've all been most supportive and your empathy and love has overwhelmed me~
Family and friends and loved ones are the fabric of this lady's life~
Thank you ALL ... keep me in your prayers~
