Re: need advice please

Second guess anytime :)

Actually she has been going to a 'regular' doctor, who
isn't going to handle this now that in the last couple
of weeks has gotten really bad. 

We have an appointment next Thursday with a
specialist. Not sure what he will decide to do, but
thinking this is at least a couple of weeks away since
he will want a MRI etc...(only done xrays so far to
ensure something wasn't broken)

I am going with her, so I will bring this up to see if
it an option in her case.

My concern right now was whether to take my scheduled
vacation or cancel it - leaving the time available
later when she needs me... gave the news to my boss
this morning.
