Here it is, only 10:20 a.m. and this Friday is turning out to be fabulous. First off, my doctor called me this morning with my lab test results.
Hold on. I have to type that again.
My doctor called me.
Not his nurse.
Not the lab.
But the doctor himself. I have a lot of doctors. Several that I see on a regular basis.
None of them personally call me. For any reason. I once got a postcard in the mail from my primary care physician telling me that I had thyroid disease, with a prescription for thyroid meds attached. Seriously. No phone call, no appointment to come in and discuss the results. A postcard. I no longer see that physician.
When I have a question for the doctor or lab results to go over, I talk to the nurse, who relays the information to the doctor, who gives the nurse instructions, who then calls me back to let me know what the doctor recommended. I never get to talk to the doctor, unless I make an appointment(and pay my co-pay).
So I was quite pleased and surprised when I answered the phone at work and it was him. Me like this doctor!
In addition to the surprise of him calling me personally, he had good news! It just gets better and better today.
He is quite pleased with my lab results and although he will sit down with me and go over them in detail next week, he did want me to know that the protein leak is not as bad as the previous test results I had given him had shown(they were almost a year old). He is also quite pleased with my kidney function and Creatanin levels. He said it is unlikely that I will need to do another kidney biopsy. Yahoo!
The only thing concerning him at this point is that my Thyroid levels are low. Which explains the way I have been feeling lately(crummy). But he increased my thyroid meds, so it's all good.
I am way happy right now and he completely took away any apprehension I may have had about next week's appointment.
Another awesome thing that happened is that I was notified by another blogger that I had won something in one of the giveaways that she does. Blog giveaways are very popular right now and even though I enter them all the time(almost every day!), this is the first one that I have won.
It came from one of my favorite craft bloggers(who is also adopting a baby from China).
Second Sister Suaviloquy. Some of her jewelry is to die for.
I won this cool Birthday Banner made by this Esty seller: Storia Home. Check them out. They have some very cute stuff. This will come in handy next month when Joe celebrates the big 4-0. (But don't tell him I told you so)
Add to all of that fabulousness the fact that I may get to meet up with Kayce this weekend while she is in L.A.(if her weekend isn't too jam packed-which I know it is), and this is shaping up to be one fabulous weekend too!
