Bad week this past week. One thing after another. But I survived!

First, the snow plow for our town broke our mailbox off at the base. The ground is frozen, so there isn't much we can do to put the thing back in the ground. We kept leaning it up against the newspaper box so the mail woman could put our mail in. But every heavy wind (and we have that all the time, we're like Chicago with wind here) would knock it down so we would run the risk of having it end up in the street and hurt someone and/or their car. Second, someone died that I knew, so I should have gone to the funeral. Third, my brother's girlfriend's mother died. My brother was in Florida, and she was all by herself, so she took presidence over the one above because she had nobody. My brother came back as soon as he could but the wake and funeral were all during the day 10Am and 11Am Thurday and his plane touched later on, 5PM. 4th, I went to the Drs and argued that I didn't want a ton of tests done, only one. If the test didn't indicate anything, then I would have the other tests. This new Dr. isn't very nice. He doesn't seem very respectful of patience.

That is a bad week. I hope it thaws out soon there, here in Ohio it has been above freezing for a while, but lots of rain..That should be good if you get this weather, the ground nice and soft from thawing snow and rain to dig an easy hole. I am sorry about your brother's girlfriend's mom, that was sweet of you to be there for her.. Now for that doctor, you said, "This new Dr. isn't very nice. He doesn't seem very respectful of patience." I can read this two ways..He isn't respectful of patience as in the person or he has no patience... Sorry, didn't mean to make light of it, I can't stand doctors who don't care for my needs.. Is there another doctor you can go to?

I'll give him another chance but the Urology practice has 3 Drs. So if he gets on my nerves too much, like the patient looses patience, then I will ask for a different one.

So if the patient looses his or her patience, the doctor will loose his patient and possibly his patience...

If he looses his patience with me, then he'll definitely loose his patient!

Bummer! Sorry to hear you had a bad time. I have good news though: We had a really good day. First, my grandson got his homework all done so he got his DSI back. Second, We went to Walmart and I was actually able to find a good spot to park so I didn't have to walk so far. (Arthritis has been really bad last couple of weeks.) Third, we got all our shopping done and were home right when we said we would so the lady who watched my grandson was happy. Fourth, the weird stuff we got for dinner actually turned out good and I ate it. I was so hungry and afraid it wouldn't be.

Thank you. Glad it was spread out over a week, I could have never made it if it had all been in one day. Things are going better now. If things are rough, wait awhile, things will get better.

Wow..you have had a bad week. I hate disrespectful doctors. Did you make a list to take to him about your concerns on that checklist? If not..he seems like one you might have to with.
