Let's Get Zapped


After much frustration with appointments, the husband finally got at least one straightened out with the radiation doctor. We went this afternoon to the new cancer clinic in Waco and met Dr. Nguyen. He and his nurse, Kim, listened to our ramblings and frustrations about the appointments. Then they went to work to get everything situated for us. 

Dr. Nguyen discussed radiation with us and what the husband could expect. But until we meet with the medical oncologist and find out exactly what we're dealing with, we can't develop a treatment plan.  The husband really liked Dr. Nguyen and his nurse for their straight forwardness. Plus he was a hoot. Who thought we would be laughing out loud while discussing procedures at the cancer center? That goes a long way with me.

So Nurse Kim got the husband an appointment with the medical oncologist at the center. His appointment is next Thursday afternoon.  It's a consultation to start everything. Finally on the right path. Today really did a lot to relieve some of the anxiety.

Hey, I didn't know you guys were dealing with this! Very scary, but I don't think there is a tougher couple in the world to kick this thing's ass up and down the block. Our thoughts are with you.

I have been out of the loop for quite some time. Three years ago, my mother in law went through breast cancer at the age of 70, and my best friend has had both breasts removed and had to have her bone marrow taken out and then replaced. So, it is not new to me, and my prayers are with you both! The best thing is keep those spirits up, keep saying you are going to beat it! The brain and mind are a powerful tool.
