Dr. Unger, feeling sorry for me in my anxious state last month, kindly scheduled my results appointment for 3:40 the same day. There is certainly a little "scanxiety" forming (yes, that is a real term - look it up if you don't believe me), but nothing like those toughest days. I'm sure the pendulum will swing back at some point, but I thought it was important to share with everyone on a positive day! Have a GREAT week. The north east is supposed to thaw out a bit over the next few days. Enjoy the warm air and sunshine.[...]
