Thankful Thursday – Affirmation
Today I’m thankful for the affirmation that I have great doctors. There can be a rift between patients and the medical community whether it be from fear, communication barriers, or power disparities. Just last week I ran across both a medical professional and another parent who know Dr. Hip who is performing Aidan’s surgery in March. The medical professional assured me of Dr. Hip’s knowledge and experience and the parent spoke of his great compassion. While a surgeon is someone I may have few visits with (pre-op, surgery, post-op) all of those pieces are important to me. His reputation precedes him whether or not he understands that each little interaction is being noted.
Today I am thankful for this assurance – Aidan will be in good hands.
