Doctor's Appointment Recap

I had my appointment yesterday. It went well. My doctor is great, she is young, smart and knows her stuff!

I didn't get any new answers, which I really didn't think I would, but was hoping for. She told me and said some things that I have not heard before from a doctor and it really put my mind at ease.

My condition is progressing slowly, so I am not going to have to worry about being in a wheelchair or have a feeding tube or going to an early grave. I will be around to enjoy life, enjoy my kids and enjoy St. Louis and Chicago.

And the probability of me passing it on (which I am so worried about) is not too likely. She did not give us specifics, but I think we will be consulting her when and if we start trying. She is a mother also, so she understands. And also she let us know that the hospital has services to help me with the baby before and after.

So all in all, no new answers, but really she put my mind at ease and for right now that means everything to me. I think this was the first time I left a doctor's appointment feeling happy and hopeful.

Yay! I'm glad you felt good after the appointment even if you didn't learn anything new.
