Dr. Jack (trial and error expert!)
Cars of beauty:
For today Thursday:
I had an appointment in the VA GI clinic next month, I just cancelled it. I feel pretty good health wise but I know I am in the vulnerable age group for this virus. It just didn’t seem right to go to a hospital with more sick people around when I am NOT sick at this time.
I am so proud of Doctor Coutts at the VA. After my scare at the Emergency room and a walk in care unit with no success; he did good. When I went into his office, within minutes he had diagnosed my problem, and taking the meds he prescribed that night I had relief and have not suffered again. He eased me onto the pills at a half pill for a week then the whole pill. I did that for a few weeks then, the dr. that I am, I started on the half pill for a week then off all together. It has been a couple weeks and all is well with no meds.
I am a no med kind of guy; he will chide me on my next visit. I am hoping I never have that much pain again. But his meds are good for a year and I am holding them ‘JUST IN CASE.’ LOL
It was hard for me to picture Doctors like other professions. Take auto mechanics as an example. Two mechanics with the same experience time, same tools can be as different as night and day. One can still be ‘Easter-egging’ (hunting a problem), while the other might say, ‘We need to pull that head, you have a bad valve in either cylinder 5 or 6.’ And he will be right.
I have a friend who constantly says, “There had to be a Doctor in every class, who was last, lazy or there for the money!” I agree, I say about my teachers in school. I think every teacher I had was dedicated, but I remember 3 that kept me on the edge of my seat, and I learned. I wish I had had an English teacher that could have inspired me. LOL I needed that. I am good with math, but hey, calculators are better. I need an English calculator. LOL
Sorry to waste your time but thanks for coming by.
