Thanks for the prayers, comments and emails regarding my mom. You can't know how much I appreciate them, especially the prayers. My online friends are the best!
I spoke with the nurse at mom's doctor's office today, and asked for a referral to get a new MRI taken sooner than the one scheduled three weeks from now. I was at the clinic at the opening of the doors, talked to the nurse on duty, and stated quite clearly that we wanted a referral. After not hearing from them after three hours, I called back, and was told that her file was on the doctor's desk along with the information about my early morning visit. They called me back an hour later, we talked a bit, I restated my request for an MRI referral ASAP. The nurse called me back one more time with an appointment for this coming Friday at Abbott in Minneapolis. Thank goodness they listened to me this time, and we have an appointment. Now we pray mom can stay healthy so we can make the scheduled test, and that they will find something that we can fix. I will keep you updated.
