Wow!

Wow, is really all I can say. Thank you all for your concern about my leg. I did call the Dr.'s office this afternoon and the nurse said to leave it as he hadn't told me to wrap it when I was there. My plan is to call again tomorrow to see if the x-rays are back...if I pester them enough, they may call to find out where they are. :)

Hebba over at Jeepgirl17, gave me a sweet award, she said I make her smile. In the spirit of awards, I pass this along to Kcinnova, Knight and Dianne. These women remind me to be happy, be sassy and be strong.

As you may have noticed, My blog is PINK. It will remain so for the month of October for Breast Cancer awareness. If you too would like to make your blog PINK and have a badge to put up, go here. If any of you are interested in reading about my journey, click on the links in the side bar.

Have a good day all.

You look lovely in the pink. Keep on keeping healthy, Reb.

Keep pestering them, Reb. It's the only way.

Keep pestering. Sheesh. (And start looking for a new doctor - that man is insensitive....among other things.)

Dianne said...

I came by to see how you were and I get an award!! Thanks!!

just coming here is award enough (too sappy?) - but I mean it!

I just recently sat my primary care doc down and told him how his lack of attention made me feel. I asked him if he would prefer I look for someone else. Told him I would understand. I explained to him that I liked him, loved his staff and his office was close BUT he just wasn't paying enough attention and I didn't want to have to remind him each visit. I have a chronic issue at the moment so we'll need to be seeing each other often and if he wasn't going to be fully vested in my feelings then I needed to move on.

He was shocked LOL
His nurse told me later that my words had really gotten to him and that he told her he had been so consumed with insurance crap that he hadn't realized how distant he had gotten.

You deserve the best!!
Demand it!

Being proactive with your health is important! I wish your doctor was listening to your concerns, and since he doesn't seem to be, I have to agree that you might need to find a different doc.

Thank you so much for the award! I have passed it on to 3 other women, and changed my blog to pink for October.

Did you know you are inspiring others? You are!

Jay said...

I kinda like the pink.

And I would definitely keep pestering the doctor's office. It's their job to be pestered.

Reb said...

Hilary, thanks so much.

Leah, yes it is.

Sis, the only available Dr.s taking new patients are in the same clinic.

Dianne, thanks for the kind words. Good for you for telling your Dr.

Kcinnova, thanks for the kind words. I'll keep pestering him.

Jay, thanks. I will be pestering them in a few minutes.

YOU DESERVE THAT AWARD sweetie! YAY!

Janet said...

that's a good plan, Reb! Good luck!

Fortune Cookies said...

Yikes! I lay low for a few days and you go and break a leg! I sure hope you get to feeling better soon! And yes, keep pestering them, you are the only person who you can trust to look out for your best interest. And thanks for the 411 on going pink...I did it too! :)

Knight said...

Wait, Knight? Me? THANKS! I was just telling Kcinnova I was doing a pink post tomorrow and now I have an award and story to go with it!

Now about your Dr. I have been through a ton of them and it isn't worth it to waste time with someone who isn't responsive or helpful. It's your health you are talking about. What could be more important?

Knight said...

And this new layout is hot! That is such a young thing to say but I felt it was fitting.

Reb said...

Aw Gary, thanks!

Thanks Janet.

FC, thanks. I am being a pest alright.

Yes, Knight, you! Unfortunately we have a bit of a Dr shortage here, so I'll just keep pestering. Hot is good! Nothing wrong with being young either.

Crabby McSlacker said...

Dang, how frustrating. Hope the folks at Dr.s office get their priorities straight and that you're leg is better before too long.

And pink looks good on you!

Reb said...

Crabby, yes, it sure is. Thanks.

MizFit said...

you ARE pretty in pink.

thanks so much for coming by the other day...

Reb said...

Thanks Miz, I often lurk at your place.

Anndi said...

First time visitor via Fortune Cookies. Love the pink!

Good luck with the doctor's office. Stay healthy.

Reb said...

Anndi, thanks for dropping by and the well wishes.
