Got a voice mail from my doc, The World's Most Wonderful Gastroenterologist. I love him because he talks to me like I'm an intelligent person and we are two intelligent persons discussing complicated topics. Those of you who haven't spent as much of their lives being a patient as I have may not know, but that is a rare thing in medicine these days. Anyway: "Tracy, I've been trying to reach you. I have your path[ology report] here and it's okay, nothing to worry about. Call me tomorrow--ask for Stephanie, she'll know how to reach me--and we can discuss it in more detail."
Again--thanks, everybody. You guys are settin' the bar pretty high in the friendship department here. I hope I can live up to it if the shoe's ever on the other foot, which I hope to God it will never be. But I'm just sayin'.
