SO grateful for this new neuro --such a kind and compassionate man --and skilled doctor. He sat beside me during the EMG (where he put the needle into different muscles) and talked with me about different subjects --to help get my mind focused on other things (I was super anxious due to a past traumatic event that happened the last time I had this test done) --and the test actually wasn't bad at all (the nerve conduction study was rougher). He is a brother in Christ --I was wearing my VBS shirt and the topic came up --and I am praising God to finally have someone who cares this much on my medical team --especially after the nightmare I went through at the one neuro clinic last year. He didn't belittle me because I was anxious --he responded with so much grace and understanding.
Being shown kindness and compassion --and being taken seriously --that is a huge blessing! It means SO much!
Now on to EMG/Nerve Conduction Study Part Two at 11:30 today. Arms yesterday --legs today.
