Thank you, Lord, for answering prayer!

Two weeks and a half weeks ago I told hubs that I was becoming pretty frustrated with my doctor.     He just wasn't answering my questions and the only time he was doing anything was when I specifically suggested something.     I was beginning to feel as though I was doctoring myself.  

Immediately following that I had to take a trip to the ER again after I began having a lot of troubles similar to my last pulmonary embolism.      They discovered that my medicine levels had dropped too low to prevent a pulmonary embolism.     After a quick stay in the hospital I went home to more shots and meds which meant lots of trips to my doctor for lab and consults.

My frustration escalated and I began praying for God to give me another doctor.       In the meantime, hub shared our frustration with his boss.     He gave hubs the name and number of his wife's doctor.

I had one lab left with my current doctor so I was going to ask for my records to be transferred.     It made me nervous, but I really want to find some answers.    

The night before I was to go to the doctor my phone rang and my doctor's nurse says, "I know you have an appointment tomorrow, but I want you to know that your doctor has resigned and won't be here."

Talk about God answering prayer in a weird way!

Now I am seeing a new doctor and in one visit he has already started making arrangements for me to see a pulmonologist so I can start a plan of action for finding the source of these pulmonary embolisms and get off these meds.    Yahoo!

So glad you were going to change doctors. I have told people that you really have to take 'your life' in your own hands sometimes. God is good to answer prayer!

Praise GOD! You are right in His new mercies at every morning, often in the most unexpected way.

What an inspiration for the day!

Oh, Deanna, I'm so sorry that you've had continuing troubles. i wish that you had let me know so that I could be in more earnest prayer for you over your health.

God works in amazing ways to meet our needs, doesn't He? I'm so glad He has prepared the path for you to this new doctor.

Love you.
