THE SEVENTH DIAMOND

Update on My Grandmother...

Yesterday was a very disappointing day. I met my Grandmother for lunch at her house so she wouldn't have to get her test results alone. We called the doctor's office several times at the time they told us to and no one answered their phone. We finally left a message as their recording requested and waited for them to call back. Their message said they would call back by 5pm and no one called back.
I cannot tell you how frustrated that makes me. When you deal with people's lives, I can't believe that you wouldn't answer your phone or return someone's call who followed your instructions and is waiting for what could be life or death information.
So, today is a replay of yesterday. We don't know anything. We hope to know by the end of the day.
I want to thank you all for your kind words. I read your comments several times yesterday. They were the little pick me ups that I needed to keep smiling and acting like everything was going to be ok.

Kim, that's NOT acceptable. I used to work in a doctor's office and that shouldn't have happened to you. I hope you will let the office manager know because you may need to deal with them in the future. I hope we will read good news in your next post.

Yes, this must be very frustrating for you and your family. Praying you hear something very, very soon.

that girl said...

Breaks my heart to hear this -- especially with an elderly person, I know how she must be up all night waiting for news.

I'm so glad you were able to sit through it with her, I know she was happy to have you by her side.

Still praying...

Kim said...

how awful and scary this must be for you! Hugs and prayers! I don't know you well but I know you enough to know you are a very kind person and full of love and generosity for others...I hope you get the love and support that you need during this difficult time

I'm so sorry you and your grandmother are going through this. I hope you finally received some news today. And that it was good of course. You and your family are in our thoughts.

K1 said...

Kimberley, I'm sorry I haven't gotten over here before now to know what is going on in your (and your Grandmother's) life.

How frustrating to be left hanging. I agree wit tht e others... it is NOT accepctable or professional.

Hoping and praying that the results were good, although not seeing an updated post after all these hours leads me to believe the news was not happy. I hope I am wrong!!!!!!

Mob said...

That IS frustrating. I agree, you would think the office would be more considerate. Prayers are with Grandma tonight.
Love, Paula

Amy said...

I hope in this case no news is good news! Sorry you need to wait.
