27 Days of Thankful! Day 2!

What am I thankful for?

Day 2!


For those of you who've been with me for a while, you know how much I struggle with medical issues (for those of you who don't, feel free to hit "The Medical Side of Me" button to the left).
The last two or three weeks have gotten scary with health issues.
I keep having these "spells" where I get incredibly dizzy (to the point where I'm running into walls) and nauseous and within a few minutes break out in a rash.
I also have severe "brain fog" where I have trouble keeping up in conversations and classes.
I went to the neurologist today and got another "Well, you should disgard everything the last doctor told you, I can't help you,I don't know what's wrong, I don't know who to send you but hope things get better for you, have a nice day."
I left in tears (there's only so many times a person can take hearing that) but returned home to a phone call from my favorite doctor who made an appointment for me to see him on Friday (he's hours away from where I live) and reminded me that no matter how difficult my case is, he's not going to give up searching for an answer.
I so dearly love this man!

Happy Monday!

That's great that you have one doctor that you are able to trust like that. They are few and far between. I had one once, but he moved. I should have married him... :)

Hope you figure out what's going on! That sounds terrible.

Thank you so much for linking up. :) I;m so glad you have a good doctor you can trust. The other one doesn't sound like a doctor at all. :( I am hoping the doctor we take our little one to in 2 weeks is good too. :)

Your doctor sounds great, definitely something to be thankful for.

Today I posted about being thankful, though it was not nearly as heart warming lol
