No News is Good News

Monday, September 16, 2013

Having a doctor who communicates well is a huge help in managing your health. But, it’s when the doctor has nothing to say that I’m the happiest.

At Victor’s annual visit to his cardiologist, there was no news. Nothing to report means that nothing has gotten worse—it hasn’t improved, either, but that’s not something we were expecting.

Since doctors don’t call you in for appointments when test results are normal or your condition is staying steady, it’s great not hearing from the cardiologist. No news is good news as is a year without change.
