The cardiologist taking his place is a woman that I believe is coming from Rochester, NY. She took care of what I needed today and wants to see Bob in her office next week. I have no reason to think she won't be just fine but will be a little nervous until we meet next week.
It is not often all the pieces in medicine work in harmony as they should but I now know it actually does happen occasionally. Today Bob's geriatrician changed how he takes Prilosec. A few hours later I was surprised to receive a call from a pharmacist in the anti coagulation lab at the hospital. Said she saw the doctor had changed how Bob was to take Prilosec and since it is a drug that changes the count in people taking blood thinners they would need to see him earlier than his next scheduled appointment. I hung up and thought, "Wow, that's cool. That's how medicine is supposed to work."
My task for today was dealing with Bob's foot pain. I'll be the first to tell you I don't like dealing with feet. He's been complaining for several days about his feet. I thought about it a while and decided some busy work might help. This afternoon I brought home some Epsom Salt and a tube of some kind of cream that's suppose to turn cool and be refreshing. I took the sack to his room and instructed him how HE was to do it. He set right to work on it. I don't have a clue about what to do for foot pain but figured that would make him think I did. I love the saying his geriatrition uses about old people. She says "sometimes it just takes a tincture of time."
