A Letter From the Doctor

Beth got a letter from the doctor today. The results of her lab work are: she needs more medicine. The doctor is raising her dosage from 62mg a day to 75. She said it may be the cause of her weight gain.

All the levels look good, her HGB A1C, Free T4, Glucose, everything is within the normal range except her TSH. That is very high. So, we'll up the dosage and see what happens.

One thing Beth liked about this new doctor is the examining room. Usually you have to sit up on the small bed type thing and it terrifies Beth. She has become SO afraid of heights the last few years. It's so bad that we had to put her mattress and box springs on the floor. She just refused to sleep in her bed because 'it was too high.'

So when we went into this new room, she got a big smile on her face! The nurse motioned for her to 'have a seat' and she loved it! She was completely relaxed and I think that helped her when she was talking with the nurse.

I feel the same way. Why climb onto the bed thingy if there's no need. :)

What seem like little things can make a huge difference to accessibility. I hope the meds change has all the right effects.
