Another amazing group of people today to help us at the Cancer Center. This one specializes in pain and symptom management. A nurse, a doctor and a resident. All three, super people. You can really tell when someone works a job as opposed to someone practicing a craft. Kath is going through a rather rough spot again, and its helps so much to know that everything possible will be done to help manage these side effects of the treatment, or the impact of the cancer.
Still no word on the confusing CT. We asked the resident, and she went to look at the report, but it had not yet been updated. Frustrating, but we appreciated very much her going to look. Little things like this can make a big difference. Not sure if they realize that, but I suspect they do.
Dr. had a real guru look to him. Big beard. He would be a UNIX King Nerd, if he were in computers with that beard. The type of doctor who knows how to talk and convey confidence and trust. Not in a condescending or impatient way, but just the right amount of gentle assurance in his voice. He answered all our questions, explained why he wanted to follow plan #2 and not #1,3,4, but if need be, there were other strategies in reserve.
So more waiting. We are both anxious about hearing about the CT. It wont be until Wednesday morning… at the earliest
