Pat's trip to the doctor...


I wanted to let everyone know that Pat made it to his doctor's appointment this morning and he has been diagnosed with restless leg syndrome, a disorder that causes an uncomfortable creeping, crawling, tingling, pulling, twitching, tearing, aching, throbbing, prickling or grabbing sensation in the legs (thanks to the www.medicinenet.com Web site).
The nurse checked Pat for bacteria in his stomach, but he was clear of that... so now he has to take some meds for acid reflux (and hope he doesn't have an ulcer).
He has a follow-up appointment next month for blood work and to check on the restless leg syndrome... let's hope that he's feeling better.

Hope this does the trick and the medicines work. Just knowing should ease the stress alittle bit. Grandpa thinks Savannah has the most beautiful eyes.
