The Difficult Case

After a rough day yesterday, I was ready for today to come!  Today, I met with a high risk OB at a hospital 2 hours away.  "Why so far away?" you may ask.  Because it is still the closest one to where I live.  So hubby and I took off work and made our way up to the Women's hospital.  We got their about a half hour early, so I went over my notes and questions I wanted to ask him.  All two pages of them.

We made our way into the facility, which I am highly impressed with.  They have complimentary valet parking and I saw at least two uniformed security guards on the grounds.  One even sits at the information desk.  I checked in, paid my co-pay and waited.  When we were called back, they got my weight and blood pressure and asked some basic family history questions.  It was obvious they had already looked over the large amount of paperwork I had turned in when I signed in.

The nurse took us to a consultation room where she asked me to tell our story.  I did.  I'm getting used to telling it and today wasn't as hard as it used to be.  Thank God!  Progress!

After a few minutes going over things with her, she said she would get the Dr. and he would be in shortly.  As she left the room, I noticed a peice of artwork on the wall opposite the door. 

A doctor, wrinkled brow, studying patient files, medical books and his microscope.  Over his shoulder, an image of Jesus pointing at the answers.  It was called, "The Difficult Case".  I was amazed!  Luckily, I had my camera in my purse!

More to come on the actual appointment later!
