I forgot to mention the best news of all! Marshall got a call a few days ago from the Lincare people (they provide his oxygen) telling him that they thought he would want to know that his primary care physician -- Dr. Bliss -- who left our local clinic rather abruptly several weeks ago, is now practicing at a clinic in Florence, Colorado, which is only about 35 miles from Westcliffe.
So we called and made an appointment for June 12 and then I went over to our local clinic and picked up all of Marshall's records to take with us on the 12th. We have no idea what happened between Dr. Bliss and our local clinic (he had been with them for a lot of years), but perhaps it had something to do with the fact that the clinic may have to shut down for mismanagement reasons.
At any rate, we have our wonderful primary care doctor back and the world is looking much better.
