A New Doctor

We saw GL's new doctor today. He took his time. He actually read all the notes we made and asked intelligent questions about them. He discussed pros and cons of various treatment plans, and made recommendations. He asked if we had questions, and when we did, he answered them. He recommended changing only one thing at a time, so we know what's working, and what isn't. He recommended starting a new med at a low dose, and increasing it gradually, unlike the old doctor who would cut off an old drug cold turkey and start the new one at full dose. He wrote a prescription for a new med, plus refills of everything we were low on. We could even read his handwriting.

He wants to see GL every six weeks, but said to call him if GL doesn't start sleeping better in 1-2 weeks. Things look very encouraging.
