A place to find out where Anne is and how she is feeling. Goal: Make this blog obsolete.

Dr. Fleisher

The staff here at UMissouri Children’s is great.  Even the custodians take a personal interest in the patients.

Dr. Fleisher is certainly committed to finding out what is wrong with Anne.  For example, he came to the hospital at 2:00 a.m this morning asking for all her charts and a “dark room” to think.  I don’t know how dark it could have been if he was able to see the papers.  He then checked on her at 5:00 a.m. and admitted he had to get some sleep.  He didn’t sleep for long.  He called the nursing staff at 7:00 am to see how she was doing.

Unlike some other doctors who have treated Anne, he is a true diagnostician, interested in finding the source of the problem.

We think that Anne is his only patient, at least his only in-patient, at the moment.  He is retired from active practice and is an Associate Professor of Child Health Pediatric Gastroenterology, following only his existing clients.

His approach is very much like Dr. House, though he is much nicer and much more interested in the patient and not just the solution.  Interestingly, Dr. Fleisher has never seen House.

Anne is being a real trooper.  In order to isolate causes and symptoms she is on less pain medication than usual.  She undertands that she has to bear it sometimes in order to help find the cause.

  1. Praying so much for you guys! Lily, last night prayed for Anne after I told her that you guys were in Missouri, it was cute. “Dear God, Can you please make Anne feel better so she can come back from the hospital so I can see her again! Amen! Oh! And Anne’s my best friend and I miss her! AMEN!” We’re all thinking of you guys constantly and are hoping that Dr Fleisher will figure out what’s going on! I’m thankful that he is genuine and cares about Anne and finding out what’s wrong with her! We miss you guys and love you all!
