ABC Wednesday...D is for Doctors

I am actually writing this on Monday night because tomorrow will be to busy for writing. I need to leave my house at 7:00 am and be at the hospital by 8:00. My father will be having a triple bypass surgery. So today D is for Doctors.

He has had quite a few doctors this week. First was the ER doctor at our local hospital who sent by ambulance to Mercy hospital about an hour away to have a Cardiac Catheterization (I am sure I spelled this wrong). Then was the doctor who performed the procedure and told us that three of his arteries were blocked. That doctor was followed by a parade of others who asked him the same questions over and over (don't these doctors communicate) and finally was the Surgeon.

I am not so sure I liked this Surgeon. I can't tell you one particular thing that is wrong with him. I am sure he is a great doctor (lets hope) but he seemed way to jolly to be dealing with a family in such a stressful time, and although I am sure it wasn't intentional he talked down at my parents as if they were children. And then there was the fact the he referred to herbal medicine as "any of that other crap they try to sell you". Lets just hope that he is better with the scalpel than he is with people.

By the time I get around to posting this it will be Tuesday night and my stepfather will be recovering. I will update you later.

Update : Wed. My father is awake and doing well. He will be moved out of ICU and onto the cardiovascular floor sometime today.

  1. I'm glad your stepfather is revoering well! Doctors sometimes talk like that not to use comlicated terms, I think, which doesn't make things less enervationg for people with more than two braincells, I understand... My late father has been in the hands of many good doctors, and sometimes we had to "shake" them a bit so they'd undertand we were not stupid as we looked like in our worrying time.. LOL
    Great unusual D post.

    Kisses from Nydia.

  2. It's difficult to find a doctor who has both skills and the bedside manner, especially the specialists. Prayers with you.

    On behalf of the ABC Wednesday team, thank you!

  3. Glad it worked out for the better! Good D post!
