Hi, I’m Annie and you’re not! My 26+ years of nursing experience gave me an understanding of health concepts and nursing practice, so that I can explain, teach and clarify them. Perhaps, I taught you to nurse your newborn or your husband about diabetes.
Your doctor knows your labs, the results of your physical exam and has been trained extensively to interpret them and solve a ‘puzzle’. I trained to discern abnormalities and to alert him to them, but it is his job to know how they could affect you physically. We were a team to combine his knowledge and findings with those of the pharmacist, me, the nurses’ aide, social worker, and chaplain.
The information on these pages is meant to explain conditions and explain some frustrating ‘doctor-speak.’ However, your doctor must be your final word.
If you can’t find what you’re looking for on these pages, feel free to message me with comments on the contact form below or use iif you with an idea for a post, from what to do for a runny nose to how to plant a garden! It arrives directly in my e-mail box. I do hope you enjoy nosing around!
