I had my doctor's appointment today and it turned out to be a non-event!
The X-Ray lab hadn't sent the X-ray results to the clinic, even though, in their letter to me, they said they have sent it to my doctor and stating her name, etc. Or, the clinic didn't receive it. So, the doctor didn't have the results to consult. Then the clinic called the lab for the results, but they claimed I had to sign a release authorization form, even though I signed one when I went for the X-ray. Anyway, I signed a new form at the dr's office and they will fax it and hopefully, receive the results. Until then, the doctor can't go over them with me.
However, she examined me and filled out another referral request for additional diagnostic testing. So, now, we will wait until that gets processed (and hopefully, approved) and mailed to me; and then, I'll call for an appointment and take it from there.
I am feeling remarkably calm and almost serene. I feel that this is a sort of a test for me and it is important for me to handle it with grace. It is a weird feeling. But I am going to accept it and not question it.
Perhaps this is a sort of "wake up call" and a reminder to live life to the fullest, not merely exist, but actively live, to be present in the moment. At least, that is what I am hoping to do. To appreciate each day's blessings.
Today, I am grateful to have been given this opportunity to re-examine my life and make improvements.
How was your day? Did you have a good day?
