This afternoon, R and I had a physician appointment and well, things went very well! It looks like we'll be able to do everything right here in town. And the best part is that we really like the doctor a lot.
I can't recall all of the specifics, and since R was doing most of the talking (shocking, really!), I'll get her to post her comments later this evening.
At any rate, I am very excited and pleased with the way things are progressing.
