went to see the new doctor

I was sent to see a heart doctor at Harrison on Monday and I really hated to go'cause in the last 3 years I stopped smoking and have developed a bad leg  therefor I have gained 75 pounds . I am sure that has added to my health problems. I was sure the doctor was going to tell me my weight was my problem imagine  my delight when the new doctor walked into the room, he was 5 foot and 6 inches tall and would have tipped the scale at 3 hundred and 50 pounds.
The doctor said well Patsy, you and I are not going to be competing in the Olympics but I can make you feel better. The first thing he did was put me on fluid pills about 3 times what my doctor had me on! I like a doctor that doesn't say or imply that your Illinois is your own fault and if you half tried you would cure your self and not bother me. You could send in your money and we would all be happy.
I have not been able to sleep over 2 hours with out getting up and setting in a up right position for 2 months and I knew that was fluid crowding my heart but no one seemed to think the answer would be to get rid of the fluid.
I have a oxygen machine that has helped my sleeping so I am feeling pretty good today.The fact is I feel like a kid again.

Remember Momma had all those fluid problems Pat...she gave this to you. I am glad you are getting rid of the fluid on the lungs and are feeling better. Also, like the cousin photo you posted.
