Any news from Aptosca?

I think she said she would call the doctor yesterday if she hadn't heard anything. Waiting must be nerve racking for her. I just hope whatever is wrong is treatable. Prayers still being offered.

She said in the other thread that she moved her appointment up to next week.

We had lunch yesterday (she's about 30 minutes away from me), and we had a great time talking. Wish you all could have been with us!

RE: Any news from Aptosca?

Helene, I wish I could have been there too. I knew she moved her appointment up, but the waiting would make me crazy.

I guess no news is good news, but still...


RE: Any news from Aptosca?

Checking in. The waiting is awful. My experience was that I had to compartmentalize (or I would have had no fun at Canny Camp!). That was after I worked through all the worst case scenarios and planned my wake.

Clare, I hope you're keeping busy and this time goes by quickly.

RE: Any news from Aptosca?

Thanks everyone for checking in on me. It is also driving me crazy!!! I emailed my doctor Thursday with the test results and asked him to please explain them. His reply was, "Too difficult to cover by e-mail. We will go over this in detail at your visit next week." So that is how it stands till my appt. on March 14th.

At least the weather has been great so I can work outside. I worked half the day yesterday in the rose bed that surrounds our gazebo. And even bought a new rose to replace one that died. The new one has chartreuse color flowers and it is called "St. Patrick". Thought it was appropriate to plant now. Maybe it will bring me the luck of the Irish!

Helene - had a great time at lunch. We will have to do it again sometime and invite the whole Bay area.

Here is a link that might be useful: St. Patrick Rose

How arrogant is that? Doc needs a shot of his own medicine!

I hate to stir up trouble, but I'd be changing doctors and/or possibly report him to the medical board. There's no excuse for giving you potentially serious diagnoses such as these and then being so cavalier as to book your appt 2 weeks after the test results arrive! He could have at least had the courtesy to have had a brief phone conversation with you to discuss the outcome.

On a positive note, I'm glad that you met Helene and are enjoying the glorious weather!

RE: Any news from Aptosca?


I'm glad you're keeping busy doing what you enjoy. Best thoughts, wishes, and prayers still coming your way from me!

How arrogant is that? Doc needs a shot of his own medicine! While it's frustrating waiting, they probably need to know how Clare feels about certain things, such as the nuances of what is going on. That's probalby what is "complicated", not medical terms :) Face to face is better for some things. At least, I took it to mean this. I hope! Peace

RE: Any news from Aptosca?

rob, compumom, everyone - Thanks for the support. I am guessing that what the Dr. has to discuss is complicated so better face to face. Maybe go over previous tests and other data he has. I will give him the benefit of the doubt till I see and talk with him.
