Doctors and Appointments … and Worrying!

I have been feeling much worse these days, so I sent Dr. Hedaya an email on Friday, telling him I needed to discuss the results of the recent tests with him.  He replied at once and told me to make an appointment to discuss them personally. When I called his office they told me he had nothing until the 22nd.

Rather than discuss this with the receptionist, I sent another email to Dr. H, telling him I could not wait that long, and to please try to discuss it over the phone. He wrote back and said there were cancellations often, and they would let me know as soon as they had one.  About ten minute later, the receptionist called to tell me they have an opening on Tuesday15 the at 12:20 for a one-hour appointment. Great!   But then I started thinking that it was somewhat strange they had a cancellation ten minutes after I had asked.   My take is that Dr. H wants to see me soon, and he made time for me.  How else to explain the time they gave me for the appointment? He takes phone calls from 2:00 to 3:00, so when does he have lunch?

Naturally, I worry. Is there anything wrong with the results? Why does he want to see me so soon? I already have an appointment for the 5th of July with him. I hope that the DNA mutations in one of the tests he ordered are not serious. But that’s me, as usual. Valerie would say I am being melodramatic, and she may be right. I do worry too much.

I’ll write about it on Tuesday, when I come back home. In the meantime, I promise I will try not to worry… too much!


About martisima

After over 50 years of teaching literature to undergraduate and graduate students, I feel I have earned my retirement (it happened when I was 72, five years ago). I do miss the classroom, however, but not the meetings and all other requirements of the profession. I love teaching, and wish I could still do it. But now I read for pleasure, and watch films, and listen to all kinds of music (no TV, though). I love to travel, and hope I can resume doing it soon. I need to get over my health issues caused by thyroid surgery three years ago!

  1. He wants to see you soon because you asked to see him soon! So don’t worry. 😉

    This is exactly what Father said. Now he can read everything I post, so he told me not to worry. But — he wanted to see the results of the DNA test. He then said there was nothing that seemed wrong, even with those mutations.

    Thanks for reassuring me!
