Bad though not unexpected (mostly) news from ALHS's doctor visit today.
The unexpected part is that the surgeon we've gone through so much with is leaving and moving 1800 miles away.
This isn't looking good, and the thing is, we know this is probably going to be our life (fix the problem, have it recur/progress, as it's a degenerative problem, repeat) from here on out. I'm just really down this evening, but I want to stay up for him and our girls.
Ah, well. So it goes.
I apologize for the delay in responding. I'm sorry you're going through this. Chronic illness is so hard and draining to deal with. I hope you find another surgeon you and ALHS like. Maybe the one that is moving can recommend a trusted colleague in the area.
I'm horribly nervous, as usual, but I'm looking forward to things settling down to whatever the new normal will be. I'm just tired of the frequent doctor visits, etc.
