They are terribly busy it seems to me...he has to talk to you, Jamie, before he can talk to her, she's gonna wait a while probably :?

...does the man plan to sleep today? good lord....he'll operate on IG tomorrow at 6 am if she needs it if they keep to the usual schedule...we'll hear more later.

Man. They are hopping busy there

So much so that he has cleared his summer to accomodate MS patients.

Poor IG waited at Dr D's office until 7 last night--all the staff had gone home after telling her Dr D was out if surgery and he'd be there shortly...
and at 7 an exhausted Dr D came in and said I haven't even been able to see your scans............I am so sorry I tried to call and say I'll see you tomorrow, but the staff is gone.... we have to eat and rest so let's meet tomorrow."

at any rate they are meeting this morning at 8am - in 30 minutes time- and he'll give her the scoop on her scans and they'll talk repair if needed, possibly later today when an OR is available.

Did anyone mention Dr D was, like, really REALLY busy these days :lol: ?

Poor IG! nerve wracking tests all day long then sitting in the office til 7 nervous to hear what the deal is...and then a wait to find out til tomorrow. Yikes!

Prayers from Dallas

Postby mormiles » Wed Jul 08, 2009 8:24 am

Steve and I are sending up our prayers for Island Girl too. It seems like so many of us are sitting in this virtual surgery waiting room, filled with anticipation, hoping and hoping and hoping. Lord have mercy, Christ have mercy, Lord have mercy on Island Girl, and bless her in every way.
