Swim Lessons & A New Doctor

Matthew and I tried swimming lessons this week for him.  The first couple of days went fairly well until the instructor took Matthew under the water briefly.  Her intentions were good but he never recovered.  Complete red faced three-year-old melt down.  We had to go home after that.  I plan to keep exposing him to the idea of swimming, at least on how to get out of the pool on his own but I am afraid he has his mother fear of going under the water….

I never heard back from the new doctor my nurse practitioner was referring me to and when I called the office to check I was told that the person that takes care of that was out and to call the new doctor myself to get thing done.  Ok.  The new doctor can see me this month if I go to his Sherman office.  Ok.  So I now have an appointment in a couple weeks but I’ll tell you what is really bothering me.  No one seems to have a clue what is causing the pain in my back and now they just want to send me to pain management.  I just want a diagnosis.  I have had surgery, two MRI’s and have seen four doctors trying to find a cause and so far, no luck.  I am afraid they think it is all in my head.  Lots of people have told me to find a doctor out of town and as much as that appeals to me, I wouldn’t know who to go to.  Do I just pick some random name off the internet?  I guess I’ll just see what this next doctor has to say.

  1. Wow Paige, my feed for this blog appears to be broken – the last post I showed in my reader was the costume contest!

    I wish I had seen this post earlier. I would have tried to find you someone in the Dallas area. I’ve heard nothing but good about the Landry center but it’s been mostly about knees. I’d have to check on back stuff. I will see if I can get a new source for you.

    Unfortunately this town is ok if you have a straight ahead normal ailment that they can diagnose immediately but if you have any out of the ordinary problem, I have found that most of the medical community here just turns a deaf ear. If they can’t find the problem then it must be your fault, crazy as that sounds.

    I’ll do a little checking and see if I can get you a name.
