Dentists, Doctors and Health

My mom just found out a few days ago that she has Grave's Disease. Will be needing an operation as well on her thyroid, after local hospital misdiagnosed her for 7 years, with Fibromyalgia. She had multiple doctors over the years, no one  figured it out, till she suggested tests for thyroid, which she said she had thought it may have been over the years, but was never tested. She may have not have had so many problems with her health now, that led to the end result for her. Seems like we all have some sort of problems with health though, no matter how well we think we're taking care of ourselves, by eating healthy or going for daily walks, etc..

Gerry has been having re-occurring ear plugging. I just got back from the city a few days ago after seeing the podiatrist for a bunion problem caused by an old injury. Had to get special shoe inserts to try to relax the toe and stretch it a bit so will see how those work. Also was at the endodontics who told me a molar I was trying to save that had a root canal years ago can't be saved, so I have to make an appt. here to get it pulled. Not something I am looking forward to .

Now I have to as well go see a hematologist. My iron is still dropping and doctor concerned. So another trip to the city whenever that appt. is made.
Unfortunately it's not close. 5 hours+ drive one way. Means gas money and hotel stay too. This last trip with the dentist though was covered by Gerry's work, since they give equivalent bus fare ( $200), if it's a second trip for the same thing, or to the same doctor, and I had been to this endodontist years back for the original root canal. Good thing about going to the city is that they do have good shopping for clothing and a dollar store I love!
