And wrong again

I was wrong in what I heard about the bacteria in Bob's blood stream. I thought it was a very common bacteria that we hear of a lot, but it was not. His regular doctor set me straight. She wants him to see the infectious disease doctor, again. I told her I thought that was where he caught the infections, but she says he has to go. That doctor needs to know he has had C Diff and streptococcus viridans. Heart Doctor needs to know as well. Today Bob needs to get labwork done for his Kidney Doctor. And get his antibiotic shot. I am working all day today.

My cousin has this and she always has to alert her doctors as well. Thoughts are with you both.

I like most of these doctors and his primary has done a lot for him. I think we will get to the other side soon.

Sometimes my head spins. The VA is covering most of this, I believe. The oral Vancomycin came out of my flex spending as it was pricey.

Sorry it was worse than you thought. Now that he’s seeing specialists they will find the treatment he needs.

Kidney doctor was scheduled six months ago. His regular cardiologist is good. We did not care for his original cardiologist but like this one. That peskyinfectious disease clinic is what is questionable.

@GardenGerty I’m luck that my doctors are all likable and I trust them.

The kidney doctor was scheduled six months ago. I am a little concerned about the heart.

I sure do hope all his doctors are aware of what each of them are doing in reference to Bob's health.

I carry copies of some reports between all the offices. The Primary Care said for me to verbally tell the cardiologist and the kidney doctor, although she is faxing reports to them.

I bet Bob feels as if he's in some nefarious, prolonged lab experiment. Hope things improve for him soon.

He says he feels as if he is climbing up a very steep hill and maybe will see the top soon, then it will be a smooth path forward.
