[from my personal blog]
My sister talked with her minister last night. She had three good suggestions for anyone facing a major medical crisis:
1) Talk with someone who has been through it
2) Get a notebook to write down appointments, drugs, doctor’s notes etc. so there will be one place for all of it and then you can put it away when you’re done
3) Take someone with you to every doctor’s appointment – there is a lot of info and emotion and it’s good to have someone else to help deal.
My sister suggested I take her best friend or her with me.
She also suggested that I go to church with her on Sunday. She said she has found a wonderful new support community and she would like to share it with me and make it another resource for me.
Today I feel great! Because Philip, Hubby and my sister are being so good to me. I am trying not to get ahead of myself, just take it as it comes.
