I Know Better Than to Worry, But I Can't Seem to Stop

First, a quick update...

- My mom had more tests... but they were inconclusive.  Because of her other health issues and the medication she has to take, she's not a typical patient.  Her records are being sent to a top-level specialist at the university hospital in the city near where I live.  Right now it looks like she won't need surgery, but we still don't know what's causing the episodes, so we can't prevent them from happening.

- My daughter had more tests... but they were inconclusive.  She has now been to her primary doctor, the ER, and an orthopedic spine surgeon.  She is now going to a physical therapist who has a pretty rare certification that specializes in diagnosing and treating this type of injury.  She's been to the therapist twice now but because of her having fibromyalgia and dysautonomia, she's not a typical client (deja vu?) and it's taking longer to figure it out.  Again, right now it looks like she won't need surgery, but it will take a lot longer to figure out definitively why she's hurting and how to fix it (which still could possibly be surgery).

- My dad's foot is no better.  It's not worse, which is good, but one doctor said that it won't get better if his circulation isn't improved.  However, the procedure to fix his circulation is very dangerous.  He went back to the doctor Friday and guess what?  It was, yes... INCONCLUSIVE.  He has another appointment next week to hopefully get to the next step, whatever that is.

- My ears are hurting again, but this week is jam-packed.  I have no idea when or even if I can go to the doctor.  Sigh...

It looks like my big fear that all of these 3 would need surgery around the same time was wasted worry (as 99% is).  However, it also means that we are still waiting for each actual diagnosis and treatment. 

I...
