The appointment is at Oregon Health Science Univ and it isn't till July 7th, but hey I got an appointment. They have put me on their cancelation list so if someone calls them with a 24hr cancelation they will call me as the OHSU is 4 hours from where I live. I do hope I get in sooner then July I am not getting any better at the moment and I am hoping for a comfirmed diagnoises of some sort.

I'm so happy to hear that you finally got an appointment! Congrats. I'll be praying for you for a sooner appointment and a diagnosis to give you some emotional relief. I know from experience that just having a name to go with all the awful symptoms is a great relief. Have a great day and stay positive!

I hope someone cancels too! But at least you will get the best diagnoses and treatment plan there. If it wasn't for Loma Linda Medical University and the University Medical Center of Arizona at Tucson I would not be as well diagnosed and treated as I have been.

Hey sweet sister,

Haven't heard from you in a week and me being the perpetual worrier am worried about you.

Hope things are calming down for you. Lord watch over her and heal her. May this appointment become sooner than next month.

It took me 6 mths to get into the rheumy the first time. He has a very busy practice and takes a long time each visit. Each time I go to him I can count on waiting 4 hrs for my appt then another 2 hrs for the visit.

Keeping my fingers crossed that you get in earlier.
