A Beautiful Foot Muscle (?)

My Neurologist told me I have a beautiful foot muscle today.

We had been discussing Peripheral Neuropathy and EMG testing and she wanted to see my feet.  Her assistant/student and I had a good laugh when she commented on the beauty of my foot.

We really laughed when she told us how she looks at people’s feet and thinks to herself – I’d really like to poke that foot!

For those of you now thinking that this Doctor is nuts – what she’s talking about is doing an EMG on people’s feet.

Can I say how impressed I am with some doctors?

Not because of them commenting on the beauty of my feet, which, by the way, has never happened before!

But seriously…

This Doctor was very concerned about how another Doctor made a declaration saying that I had yet another disease.  In her thinking…he shouldn’t have just plopped another disease on me based on an inconclusive test result with no knowledge of my background/issues.

What does she want to do about it?

Re-ran the test herself.

And when I told her of my dilemma with upcoming surgery…she looked at her schedule and fit me in before my surgery which is in April.

When is she fitting me in?


Talk about a Doctor who will bend over backwards to help their patient.  I’m incredibly impressed.

I’m actually very impressed with all the Doctors I’ve been dealing with in Duluth.  (With the exception of the one completing the test.)

I went down there asking them to please fix the puzzle that is my health because I NEED and WANT to get back to normal…(if possible).

I know…some of you want to define normal vs. me, right?  Ha, ha, ha!

So far, we have gotten answers on almost all the issues and so far all are fixable – YAHOOOOO!

Hopefully this one will be too.

And if not…life goes on…

And you know, sometimes the journey is the gift.

And this journey certainly has been.

From people who’ve shown they care

…to starting this blog

…to having the time to help others while I’ve been out of work

…to getting to know these wonderful Doctors who actually want to figure out my health.

God certainly does work in mysterious ways…

Like giving me a beautiful foot muscle.

  2. Thinking of you and hoping for the best possible outcome for you. I`ll pray for a speedy recovery for you.
    As for me? Back in hospital confounding the doctors as usual…. I`m okay just needed some iv antibiotics and pain relief again… maybe my April surgery will get put forward as well? At this point even that would be a relief.

    • Meg you are constantly in my prayers. You and I will be both having surgery in April…coincidence? Yours is much more serious than my torn rotator cuff. Hugs.
