A man visiting a doctor says; "Doctor I just dropped in to tell you how much I benefited from your treatment."
The doctor replied; "but you are not one of my patients."
The man said, "I know. But my uncle Bill was, and I am his heir."
I know, I know...I can hear the collective groan.
Thankfully, the doctor we had last night seemed to know his stuff. Kristin is feeling better today, but is having to rest and "drink lots of water." We'll keep you updated. Thanks for your prayers.
And for those of you who are as curious as I was about Costochondritis, here is a little info that I gleaned from a medical encyclopedia on medicineonline.com:
Costochondritis is also considered as a possible diagnosis for adults who have chest pain. Chest pain in adults is considered a potentially serious sign of a heart problem by most doctors until proven otherwise. Chest pain in adults usually leads to a battery of tests to rule out heart disease. If those tests are normal, and your physical exam is consistent with costochondritis, your doctor will diagnose costochondritis as the cause of your chest pain. It is important, however, for adults with chest pain to be examined and tested before being diagnosed with costochondritis. Often it is difficult to distinguish the two, without further testing. The condition affects females more than males (70% versus 30%). Costochondritis may also occur as the result of an infection or as a complication of surgery on your sternum.
