Day 2 Gratitude

For those of you wondering, after an interesting start to the morning I was able to get to the doctor's and found out that: everything about my heart seems normal! So, this is very good news. I still will meet with one more doctor to rule out anything that the tests today didn't uncover and then we'll move on from that--mayhaps it really was "just" heartburn. Which means a visit to a G.I. doctor, but one thing at a time. My doctor was, though, very optimistic that things are heading in a good direction.

So, today's blessings include:

1. The fact that I was able to get in to see the doctor. Seriously, I'll spare you the long story, but I was able to see the doctor today and that was a lovely thing indeed.

2. The nurses and techs I worked with today were AWESOME. The doctor I got in to see was...well, initally less than desireable with his bedside manner. I felt like I was at the principal's office! But the good news is that when I went to get an x-ray, the tech was sooooooo complimentary of him and actually told me that he was like a gruff old bear and not to let him fool me with his ultra serious demeanor. And she was so terrific, I believed her. She also said that if I'd come to get entertained, well, I'd gone to the wrong place, but if I'd come to get fixed, he was the one I wanted. Now, granted, I'd like a little of both, but all things considered, I sure appreciated her words and how it made me see him and respond to him when I went back to see him with my x-ray.

3. The priesthood. Jason got home just before craziness happened and he was able to give me a very quick but special blessing. How blessed I am to have the priesthood in my home and a wonderful husband who is worthy to use it, and does so appropriately.
