Hi Phillipa,

Thank you, thank you...for your kind reply.

> Absolutely not as empathize fully with you. Takes special people to be a good nurse.

I can really sense that you are/were a good nurse too. I don't think a good nurse really ever quits/retires/is "disabled" because nursing is a deep part of their nature. Your caring still comes through clearly. thank you!

>A lot of bad ones out there...

You have an interesting story too--thanks for sharing this. It does go to show that doctors are only human & make mistakes & even do harm. Bummer that you got hurt.

>Husband is better now?
Finally. He has had a total of 10 knee surgeries--ACLsx2, torn meniscus, flipped patella, etc & at last a knee replacement a year ago w/intensive, wonderful & costly rehab. He went back to school (respiratory therapy) & works part time installing phone/internet cable. He also suffered from severe depression for a long while. Getting out of pain has done wonders for him. We see the same PD. He is like our family doc. haha.


>I would have thought you would get better care from the docs you knew as I always did when working. They always took care of their own so to speak.

I worked for a medical group/hospital that was one of the first fully integrated HMOs. It was bought & sold several times Then hospital closed & later the offices too. The ER docs were fine since I worked right with them but it was the GP's, & rheumatologist that burned me towards docs. The infectious disease doc was pretty cool, believed that I was sick but just could not figure it out. It has taken a lot of time to get over that whole doctor trust thingy. I am finally happy with all of them! It is sad to say but having good/non-HMO insurance has made it easier to find the good ones. Just knowing that I have options has helped me to be bold enough to get care.

well I managed to write a lot again :)

love,
surfergirl
