Hi friends and prayer warriors! I had an appointment yesterday with a new Infectious Disease doctor in Charlotte. Unfortunately though, I got sick Tuesday evening and was in severe nausea and pain yesterday. Because of that I was unable to make the long trip. Jodie, my hospice nurse, agreed and called the doctor to explain. We were getting discouraged because we had not heard anything by end of day.
Then yesterday evening, Dr. McCurdy, my new doctor called me himself. He told me that the full culture results he ordered on Tuesday weren’t back but he was already seeing at least one bacteria in my bladder and he thought I needed to start antibiotics asap. While this might not be the best choice, hopefully this med will work well enough to keep infection from worsening before he gets the full results on Friday.
The Dr. was super nice to talk to. I’ve hardly ever received a call from a Dr. directly. He was very concerned and is willing to work with hospice to help me which is amazing. This Dr. is a Godsend and an answer to prayer! Thanks for praying. and pray things do not worsen and that we will know more soon. I am so grateful and love each one of you and I will keep you posted! Just remember that no matter what circumstances you are facing, He is still good. #hopealittlemore
