A Doctor Extraordinaire!

Thursday, August 4th, 2011

I have the most amazing doctor… Dr. Paul Nutter handles the administration of my intrathical drug pump. The hockey puck sized device that delivers baclofen into my spine to relieve the spasticity that causes me to not be able to move hardly at all.

Why is he so amazing? I take Pierce Transit’s Shuttle to my pump refill appointments each month. Because of budget cuts. Pierce Transit is eliminating bus service AND Shuttle Service from where I live, basically stranding me at home I will only be able to go to appointments when family has the time to take me. I explained all this to Dr. Nutter explaining that my mother in law has days off that are NOT the same days as pump refill days and wondered what to do… turn off the pump, theeby causing me to not be able to move? Well, before THAT statement was out of my mouth, I had commented on what days off my MIL had and when she could bring me in for a pump refill, so he is using his LUNCH HOUR to refill my pump I don’t know of any other doctor that would do that.
