I was wrong, not the first time

I do not know why I thought Bob had an appointment yesterday. It was a Tuesday. His doctor does not even work Tuesday. We got scheduled for a follow up today Actually it is a follow up for both hospitalizations this summer and the covid he caught. I hope we are on the right track now. Next week he sees the cardiologist, on Wednesday. Then the following week the nephrologist (kidney doctor) on Friday. Meanwhile, labs for all. Bob ate pretty well yesterday. In addition to fresh fruit, gelatin, and yogurt he ate a portion of banana bread (homemade) and baked chicken boneless and skinless. He figured out that the carbonation of the gingerale was making him nauseous, so now he is drinking tea with extra herbs. Bob says he feels as if he has been climbing up a very steep hill but may have now reached the top. I am headed to work now. Have a good day.

He is even dreaming up things for us to cook. It is sounding good.

I hope that Bob is now on the right track and things are finally getting better. He is eating more now, this should help.

My other co worker supposedly has covid again. He had it when I did, just a few weeks ago. Maybe he never got over it, or maybe it is another strain.

The appointment went as we expected. He is adding back in the heart medicines that he needs. Doctor wants him to go to the infectious disease clinic again, and there may be some heart complications. I learned that I had misheard or was miss told the infection in his blood. It is a strep, not a staph.

@GardenGerty I hope Bob doesn't have any heart complications and that the doctors can help him get better.

They cannot all take Wednesday off here, we would be completely at a loss. I think Dr. Weir takes Wednesday off. The cardiologist comes from out of town two Wednesdays a month.

That’s great he figured out what was making him nauseated and that it’s such a simple fix just to get rid of it. I mix things up constantly I cannot keep my days straight anymore. So many appointments for us this week that I canceled two and will reschedule them in a few weeks. Tomorrow I have a 2 hour drive one day to take my baby for her follow up after her surgery.

Really, your doctors don’t work on Tuesday? Back when I was a kid Wednesday was the “doctors’ day off.”

We only have three doctors and some APRN's here, so they take turns on days off. That way there is always coverage. In my other town it was always Wednesday afternoons the doctors were off.
