We collected another sample last Wednesday. The doctor and I fought a bit on Friday. Monday the results came back... no new growth. The Infectious Disease doctor out of Salt Lake City (whose name my doctor didn't think to get >P) said no need for a PICC Line, stay on the Sulfa, keep Infectious Disease appointment on the 23rd, and plan on a surgery to remove the wire.
I understand the logic behind finding a surgeon nearby (Salt Lake is 3 hours and Denver is 5). I just haven't been able to track one down. I still want to go to the original surgeon(s) in Phoenix. I am looking for a new doctor though, and thinking I'd like to go interview a few, but not sure how I can get in to see them. Plus, what I talk with them about how they actually perform could be two different things.
Feeling like crying because I *should* find a close doctor, but I can't seem to find one I'm happy with. I just want to take him back "home" where I know the people and places. :P
