Dr. Walker quickly had a plan for my recovery. Sent my prescription into my local pharmacy in Killeen so I could pick it up on the way home, I feel really blessed that there was a cancellation the day before and I was able to visit Dr. Walker. The clerk at admissions checked that for me while on the phone and found that opening. Must be a God thing since it all happened due to prayer.
