Mom woke up with a blown out eye pupil the other day. Alex told her to take an aspirin and off to her Dr. we go. It's ER time, again. Mom says she will never go back to him again. I told her I would tell him that since she really likes this primary care Doctor.
When we left the Dr.'s office Mom's temperature was 97.6. A few hours later in ER she developed a fever of 103 with pneumonia, a lung infection and those were not her presenting symptoms.
Mom is currently being treated for symptoms developed while in ER while tests on presenting symptoms keep coming back negative and the symptoms from her first hospitalization are being re-investigated. The first GI doctor is a jerk. I call him Dr. Wonderful. Sarcastic, I know but I will not refrain from saying I was right about him. =p
Somehow Andrew gets Dr. Wonderful (or Dr. No Show) off her case and we get the one her primary care doctor requested. He would make a great patient advocate but he hates hospitals.
Tomorrow mom will have another colonoscopy. It's only been 15 days or so since her first one.
Hmmm... can we skip ahead to February? 2013 awaits me.
