My radiologist took her time meeting with me today, and I so appreciated it. She asked the bigger overview questions – how am I feeling after meeting with all the doctors last week? What are my questions now as I wrap up and go forward?
In this age of specialists, I appreciated one doctor looking over the whole process and asking how I’m doing with all of it. That in itself felt healing.
I’ve been blessed to make it through with limited pain. We still have a long way to go, and more tests have been ordered, but there is hope, and at least a short reprieve coming up.
The doctor also cautioned about rushing back into work full time when I get back to St. Joseph’s and frantically try to make up for time away.
Since January, I’ve delegated so much, and team members have responded generously and graciously. Life at school is being carefully attended to.
My doctor said I must be at a very good and special place for that to happen. She’s right!
St. Joseph’s is a special place because of the people who carry one another through whatever trials and hardships we endure.
