Appointments and Battles

I am very happy to say that I got an appointment to see that recommended orthopedic shoulder surgeon. Unfortunately, I have to wait until the end of May to see him. I think that I have been a bit spoiled in getting appointments. I usually got to see specialists (in the same hospital system) within a two week period. I forgot that there is usually a long wait to see most specialists. I should have been thankful for just getting the appointment! A friend helped me to realize this and I am very thankful for that.

I also have to get a referral from my primary care doctor. Up to this point, I have not had to do this, but this ortho surgeon is in a different hospital system. So, I need to go to the doctor who misdiagnosed me because I haven't had the energy to try to find another primary care doctor. My oncologist has been like a primary care doctor to me but the office insisted that I needed the referral from the listed primary care doctor. Ugh!

Reading through the book of Joshua, God showed the Israelites that as long as they obeyed and followed His commands, He was with them. Not only that, but He would go ahead of them and fight the battle for them. I am trying to cast this anxiety on Him because I know that He cares for me. I am also trying to obey what He has asked me to do and let the rest go to Him. That means letting go of the emotions tied to that primary care doctor...
