Hurry Up and Wait



That seems to be the plan we're on right now.  Still waiting for the oncology appointment.  The husband called them on Monday to check on it.  He was told the just received the referral and were pairing him up with the appropriate doctor. We should hear back from them either Wednesday or Thursday.  Well, didn't hear anything today. So let's hope for tomorrow.  I have a problem with the unknown, as I am a planner. And the husband has a problem with patience.  :)

The husband decided to start eating healthier since his diagnosis. Cut out a lot of his coffee consumption and replaced it with green tea.  Came home Monday and told me he had a salad for lunch and "it had a LOT of lettuce." Oh he makes me laugh. Then he added that he had to have some dessert with it. Baby steps. Yesterday he stopped at Shlotzsky's for a sandwich instead of a burger. But do you know what they have a Shlotzsky's? Cinnabon. Apparently, he was drooling over a pecan carmel cinnabon but he only got the plain minibons. Baby steps.  He's actually doing really well though.

The husband wanted to share this as well:
"Thank You everyone for the kind words and support. This is a tough situation but I'm pretty dang tough myself and my wife is ten times as tough as me. We are going to fight and be strong. 
Thanks again, The Husband"

But remember, all good things come to he/she who waits! I know that time must be dragging and am hoping for great news for both of you.

He's on the right track. I know how hard it is to give up sweets. No more Dr. Pepper either!
