” All My Ducks In A Row”

Keeping focus and having a good frame of mind is the key. Occasionally it’s difficult to do especially when there is such negativity around you; so you learn to block that out and practice fortitude. Weather wise it is sunny and cool. Might add just concentrate on people who have a positive attitudes instead of the opposite. It has to be addictive too.
Ever since I’ve come here my main concern was to obtain another eye doctor as my last appointment was with Dr. Shapiro in Madison, Wisconsin in the month of November. It was suggested that I would make an appointment in May and schedule it for the 10th at 3 in the afternoon which I promptly did. Then after coming to Atlanta which has been 4 months now: I was just racing against time in order to make another appointment with a doctor whom and where was the ultimate question. Phoned Dr. Shapiro’s office on several occasions and actually phoned when I knew the office was closed as time was racing nearer to May. My friend/neighbor had an appointment in Midtown Atlanta on Peachtree St. and noticed Dr. Michael B. Shapiro’s name so naturally I questioned that and Dee said” That she saw his name with the Ga. Eye Partners. That was understandable being that I knew Dr. Shapiro has gone to school here as part of his wider education. This prompted me to go online to the Ga. Eye Partners on Peachtree St. Noticed the various names listed and noticed there was a doctor who had similar places attuned to Dr. Shapiro and figured that Dr. Shapiro and Dr. Eugene Gabianelli knew one another in an educational sense. Figured they went to the same school which in fact that occurred at some point in their lives. So I thought that Dr. Shapiro would recommend this particular doctor. Then finally got an email from Briana who was office manager at his office saying that Dr. Shapiro would be in the office on Wednesday. So I thought making progress just waiting two more days. Then out of the blue on Tuesday received a call from Dr. Shapiro’s office. Immediately answered and Veronica said” Dr. Shapiro has left me a note to call you; he recommends Dr. Frances( Dixie) McMullan, her office is in Tucker, Ga.” Gave me the address, the phone number. Asked Veronica whether this Dr. accepts medicare patients? She said that I would have to see when I called for an appointment tomorrow. The very next day I phoned which was a Wednesday and made an appointment. Told Amy that I was a new patient recommended by Dr. Shapiro. Amy said Dixie is only in the office on Wednesdays that she is at the Buckhead office the other times or travels. I said that was perfect. The doctor was having hip surgery in a few weeks and would be out of the office. I said ” I have to make it in May. Now after all this I have an appointment in the month of May which is on the 18th at 3 in the afternoon” It will be on Ian and Michelle’s wedding anniversary which they will be 20 years married. It will also be 3 days after my birthday.
My son Andre phoned recently and he likes Rochester, N.Y. and everything is going well for him. As a mother can’t ask for anything better.
I am getting more things from my dearest friend Alynn. In that respect things are on the upswing. Life is good when I center myself on around certain individuals and mainly think of them before thinking of myself!
