@pinkkathryn:  I am firmly against taking cell phones to the bathroom, because it’s unsanitary and a great way to end up with an iPhone in the toilet, but — BUT — I will always take my phone with me if I’m expecting a doctors’ office to call back. And I will answer it whilst urine streams from my body. Because that’s how much I treasure a call back from them!!!

@pinkkathryn:  Ugh. I’m sorry you’re dealing with that. My dad has very advanced Chron’s disease which requires a crap ton of appointments, home supply deliveries, and home nurse checks. The thing is, my dad is constantly having to be borderline rude because no one ever has their act together. The actual transplant (he’s on a list for a re-transplant so this is our second time around) team is amazing, but the day in and day out stuff is absurd. 

Keep on them. It doesn’t matter if you think you’re annoying them because THIS IS THEIR JOB AND YOU CANT SEE. That’s all their is to it. And if you really feel like you’re not getting good care or something ever doesn’t sit right, request an advocate and also go for a second opinion. Your health is your right and while we’re all taught that doctors are never wrong, that’s just not true. Some are amazeballs who deserve trillions of dollars and a medal, some of them seriously shouldn’t keep their credentials. You and your DH are your biggest supporters. 

Good luck. Keep us posted!

@pinkkathryn:  Okay, first of all, props to you for being so chill about this to them. If it were me, I’d have flown off the handle. Your sight is not something to be taken lightly. I recently had an allergic reaction to something in my eye, and within minutes I was home from work and at the doctors getting it checked out. All is good now, but your eyesight is not a joke. Hopefully everything goes to plan from hereon out. 🙂
