Hi Ginny: I'm sorry to read that you have a new problem too. Yes, that is weird that the ER doctor overruled your attending physician. I am interested to know what she says about that. I'm leaving Monday afternoon but I will remember to ask you when I get back. I hope this new problem clears up soon.
