Update on DH's doctor visits

as we knew it would be, rumors of my DH's demise were greatly overrated. The hemotologist looked at the current tests vs his last tests and said he was fine...but wants to look at his thyroid and make him eat his vegetables. LOL

DH had supplied the hemotologists with his military medical records...which shocked the doctor a lot. See in the military they allow you to not only see your records but to carry them around kind of have to with all the moving around they make you do. But in the civilian world they do not allow you to even look at your medical records...I'm guessing it's all that malpractice worries.

The funny part was that in yesterday's mail we got a report from our primary care doc stating that regardless of DH's family history she wanted him to consult with a hemotologist. I know that she'll get a copy of his report but I sure wanted to send her a "nah nah nah!" letter.

Course this is the same primary care doc who sent me the very disturbing letter after my Mamogram that said I needed to come in to talk to her about the abnormal results. It seemed that someone at the Mamography center had first sent them a copy of the results when I requested that they only go to my OB/GYN's office (since the test had been ordered by them and they had actually seen me recently. And I like them better!) and second the person at my Primary care's office had filed my results backward so on top was the mamography report and under that was the sonogram report stating that I was fine.

So as of now we're all fine. DH still has to go get his thyroid checked out, but we're expecting that to go okay too.

I TOLD DH that he should have told the doctor about the family history before she ran the blood test!!! Oh well, we're only about 3 specialist co-pays poorer now.


  1. Yay for Steak! ;) Are you guys going out? LOL

    Glad he is "normal" per say ;)

  2. not yet Heather. I cooked a turkey breast last night to use it up before we gotta eat that up. Unfortunately it cooked up much faster than I was expecting and it's quite dry. So I'm gonna try slow cooking the rest of it in chicken broth to see if I can rehydrate it somehow.

  3. I know that she'll get a copy of his report but I sure wanted to send her a "nah nah nah!" letter.

    Now, Renee, what would you say if Darly said that to you? ;-)

    Glad to hear ya'll are gonna live!

  4. Btw... where did your blog roll go?

  5. TC: She DOES say that to me...but it's okay. I totally encourage my child be be onery. ha ha.

    Re: the blogroll, I took it off cuz I wasn't using it anymore. I suppose I should put it back on there for others, huh? gotta go find my password for it. LOL!

  6. Glad to hear that everyone is ok! Yay!

  7. I am so glad to hear that all is well. Some doctors are really good at taking a few years off of our lives...not to mention giving us gray hairs.

  8. Glad to hear all is well... although maybe another PCP that you have better faith in might be a good idea.

  9. I'm so happy to hear that DH is indeed well. Sometimes you just gotta educate those doctors!

  10. Doctors, Schmoctors.
