Going to the Emergency Room

Mom's headaches are so severe this morning that we are headed for ER.

Dr. Joanna Tran, my mother's so called primary care physician sent her a letter two months ago, basically "firing" my mother from being her patient.

A more complete review of this doctor is on Angie's List.

Please keep my mother in your prayers.
Will post an update as soon as I have more information.

PLEASE PASS THE WORD OUT. THANKS.

  1. My boyfriend is also suffering from severe headaches and just like you he had to go to the ER. Now he uses a very efficient medicine called Sumatriptan (it's available in Belgium, but not sure if it's the same name in other countries). Some anti-depressants can help too to prevent migraines.
    Have a lovely day.

    1. She's on several medications, including an anit-depressant. We're going because it might be that the tumour has grown back. She also has a bladder infection. Will check the Sumatriptan. Thanks for the info and your prayers. -Katie

  8. I am hissing mad. Dad has talked to us extensively about the poor physicians that abound. He worked in ER for years and has many horror stories of patients coming close to severe injury by poor medicine. Thankfully he could intercede before the harm. He would come home seething.
    Please! Tell your friends and family that if there is an issue with your doctor CHANGE! The state of healthcare is very different today than it was even 2 years ago. Medicine now needs to pay attention to the patient and do all that can be done to provide excellent care.
    Purrs that Mom is better real soon
