It's all about who you know...

Well, Dave's chest pain and headache's have been persistent this last week. He has taken antibiotics for a week now with no change and has been on ibuprofen steadily as well. He notices when the ibuprofen wears off. We're still not sure what's wrong, but are feeling the crunch. He wants to get better before we have this kid and I can't say that I blame him.

He went to the Immediate Care Center last weekend, but we have yet to find a good Family Practitioner here in town. Our friend, Frank, who is in our life group works through the hospital. So, Dave contacted him for a good doctor. Frank gave him the name of one. However, when I went to call this morning, they told me that they were not accepting new patient appts. until the end of April. Well, Dave needs to be seen sooner. So, I called Frank with the list the nurse gave me of other doctors to try and left a message. He called me back and asked if Dave could make a 2:00 appt today with the original doctor. I said, "YES!". Apparently, Frank had walked down and chatted with the nurse and got it all set up. It sure is nice to know the right people to get something done.

THANKS FRANK!

So, Dave is heading in this afternoon. If you're wondering why I am playing secretary and setting up an MD appt for a 28 year old man, it's because he is currently at Thorntown dealing with his own appts. and can't actually do it himself. Trust me, if he were at home, he would be making the calls himself. :-)

We will keep Dave in our prayers! People ask me all the time where I get Anna's clothes. I smile-because I know how cheap it was-and say, "a garage sale". Anna and Mandy join in the fun, too. I guess we will have to fight over the boy clothes this spring!

I'm glad Dave was able to be seen quickly! What was the diagnosis??
