I am so happy to report that I now have a new doctor who I'm sure will help me with all my medical needs, as well as communicate with me and show empathy when needed. I chose an older male doctor who has provided care here for over 30 years. This doctor works with a group of specialists, which is great and the main reason I wanted to see him. I called Monday and got an appointment for Tuesday. He told me he sees many elderly patients and likes to see them every three months, just to ensure they and he stay on top of things. I already see my diabetes doctor every three months, but this guy wants to see me too and I think it is a good idea. Now that I'm elderly and all......
Not much news from the canyon. My hubby made a feast for Superbowl Sunday. Since my two favorite teams were playing, I had a bit of a problem, but decided to root for the Ravens because I really like their coach better. But I so enjoy watching San Francisco's young quarterback. When he gets in a groove, he is very exciting to watch. So we ate and enjoyed the game ~ a nice Sunday together.
I woke up to a misty morning in the canyon and took the dogs for their walks. We haven't had any snow and just a little rain, but it has been very cold. Today though, it was 40 F and overcast, so great weather for climbing the hills with Samson and walking on our road with Soldier, who by the way, also walks in a straight line, like coyotes and, as I learned from Nancy, foxes do. I've never had a dog do that before. Soldier puts his nose in the air and steps out, one paw in front of the other. He doesn't care if he hurts (which he often does), he just marches, rarely looks left or right, just marches on. The people who had him before named him well.
On the NBC Nightly News on Monday, Brian Williams announced that the skeleton found in a parking lot in Leicester, England, was confirmed to be that of Richard III. I let out a yelp that scared both hubby and dogs. Why, you may wonder, well, since I was young I've been in love with the history of England, particularly the history of the Plantagenets, of which King Richard was the last. Last fall, my blogger friend Rosalind Adam, who lives in Leicester, began to write about the discovery of a skeleton in exactly the place where King Richard was thought to be buried. By now, it was actually a parking lot. I have followed this and I know the entire town of Leicester must be so thrilled. King Richard's remains will be buried in the Leicester Cathedral.

Thanks again for your support in my hunt for proper medical care and answers to my medical issues. Hopefully, my quest for answers will soon be over. In the meantime I will post about things other than doctors and stuff. Promise!
