How cool is that?

Larry's job requires him to be on-call, five days a week. With never knowing from one day to the next if he'll be working or not and then needing to be able to go at a split second notice, it makes planning/committing to anything else very difficult.

With his evening job, he must travel from place to place for one hour sessions.

Both of these jobs together require a vehicle be available to him every day, from morning to night and at a moment's notice. Add into that Tyler's job which requires at least an hour of daily travel time...well....it makes things really complicated (especially for the rest of us who also require transportation to get to various things.) It's a constant juggling and rearranging of schedules (most times at the last minute as Larry is rushing out the door to his last minute call). Day after day it becomes quite exhausting.

Many things we simply aren't able to take part in, but a few things are just so important we simply can't miss. One such thing is appointments with my homeopath. She has helped me so much and I find keeping regular appointments the key to continued success. However .... with the good chance I'll have no way to get there come the day, I've not been able to make an appointment.

I'm already a month past when I should have gone to see her. Trying to figure out a plan has been causing a lot of stress for me. Knowing it will be July before I can commit to anything, I emailed her to ask if we could set up a phone consultation. She did this for me once before when I was in too much pain to make it into her office, so I was hoping she'd be ok with this set up again. Much to my pleasant surprise, she emailed back right away to say she's quite often in my neck of the woods and would be glad to see me in my home if that would work ok for me!!!

Wow...a house call.....how cool is that?

Fantastic! Don't you just love these caring practitioners. They make going back to regular doctors difficult! So glad this is going to work out for you LInda.
Thanks too for all your help with the acid reflux stuff. I am still trying to decipher it all due to having Bart dying in my stomach too, but after next weeks test hopefully we will know more and have more peace about things....
Thanks again and yahoo for you!

It's been a long time since I've heard of anyone making a housecall. That is wonderful.

I feel for your husband being on call all the time. My husband is on call once during a regular rotation (one weekend per month) and we find that amount to be disruptive. Can't imagine it being all of the time. I don't think I could handle that!

We have great parental support, my parents quite often drive our teens to and from work or their activities. It helps a lot.
