They Finally Called....

The neurologist finally called to schedule an appointment for my Grandpa. When? Not until December!!! He definitely can't wait till then to be seen. I don't think he's gotten any worse in the past week but he's not better either. Just thought I'd share the update since some of you wanted to know. Photo is mine...one I colored

That's a really long wait. I hope he'll be all right until then or they can give him a closer date. Nice picture.

Thank you. And yes it is such a long wait....him and my grandma are going to see his regular doctor in a couple hours to talk about their options.

@just4him But not sure if it will do them any good. They haven't seemed to help thus far.

Wow that is a long wait. Surely somebody else can see him sooner. That is crazy.

Yeah...That's like 5 months away? We really don't have many options here...this Dr was already 45 miles away.

@MommyOfEli2013 That is too bad. Can you ask to be called if someone cancels?

That is way too long. Is there any others in the area? Or if he is a veteran maybe the VA could help get him in somewhere.

Yes it definitely is...almost 6 months away. They see the regular doctor tomorrow to talk about their options. I think he was a marine...not sure what they could do since everything is so far away from us

@wolfgirl569 I sure hope so too, guess we'll see what the regular doctor suggests tomorrow.

I wonder why does the healthcare appoints another schedule on December. Quite late.
