Lots to be thankful for

Today I had a visit with my new PCP. (She happens to be the wife of my former PCP, who left the practice to work for the in-patients at the hospital, leaving a trail of sad patients behind him...But his wife is just as smart and nice and wonderful as he is, and her husband transferred us to her, so I can't really complain!) Everything seems to be on the up-and-up. She is thinking about reasons other than tamoxifen for my fatigue and muscle pains, but is OK with my desire to avoid all specialists possible, which makes me happy. One of the things we'll think about is oxygen issues at night. And she actually told me, after doing some back-muscle exploration, that I need to have a back massage. What a great thing to be told by a doctor! And how unselfish it sounds: "I have to get a back massage for health reasons..." And next week I head back to Tuscon, where I can get a great one for free from my ddil, the physiology major!

I left my appointment very grateful. She is a great doc, and I have lots to be thankful for!
