One Down...

And two more appointments to go.  Everything is falling in to place perfectly.  I started calling around doctors on Monday to see who was available to take me the soonest, managed to get the appointment I went to today, a one-day wait!  It gets better: after my appointment this morning I went home with the order for the Upper GI, called the place, and got an appointment for tomorrow morning, no wait at all.  So, as soon as I get the results in from the upper GI series (and provided they are passing), my doctor will certify that I do not have GERD and am otherwise fit for military duty.

What's dissappointing, though, is that I wish they'd just told me to go see a private doctor tuesday morning and saved some hassles throughout the day.  Regardless, they worked admirably to get the waiver through as it stood, bringing in everyone from my recruiter to the Command Master Chief of MEPS-Phoenix.  Now finally their hard work will pay off.  My wife is excited, my family is excited and finally supportive, and I'm so eager and excited that I'm giddy.  It just may really happen!  More to come...

GERD

HI,

MY FIANCE TOOK AN EXAM AND HE HAS HEARTBURN. WELL HE TOLD THE DOCTOR THAT HE HAD TAKEN PRILOSEC FOR IT AND THE DOCTOR PUT DOWN TAHT HE HAS GERD OR ACID REFLUX (EVEN THOUGH ITS JUST REG HEARTBURN.) HE IS TRYING TO GET INTO SCHOOL FOR SPECIAL FORCES SO HE WAS DENIED BECAUSE OF THIS AND IS NOW TRYING TO GET A WAIVER. SO I WAS CURIOUS TO KNOW IF THIS IS SIMILAR TO WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU?? DOES HE JUST GO TO A LOCAL DOCTOR AND TRY TO GET IT IN WRITING THAT HE DOES NOT HAVE ACID REFLUX??? IF YOU KNOW ANY INFORMATION I WOULD BE VERY GREATFUL TO HEAR BACK!

THANKS!
