Just as we were sitting, waiting for Kath’s picc line to be de-clogged, out of the blue our GP calls on Kath’s cell. We have always had a lot of trust and respect for her and this phone call only blasted that home in spades. Not sure if she will ever know how much that little call / effort meant to us, just when we needed it most. But she just wanted to let Kath know she had been following all her blood tests as well as the various reports, like this achingly troubling CT scan. Long and the short of it is that she was really happy with the fact that her liver enzymes and all other blood tests were all excellent and her hemoglobin was finally going up too. As for the mysterious mass on her pancreas, she too was skeptical about it being cancer and it was more likely that it was a post op complication as its not unusual to have a cyst. But the expert to consult would be the surgeon, which we happen to be seeing tomorrow. Her reassurance and pep talk really meant a lot. Perhaps chemo dr can get some pointers from her on this aspect of medicine.
Just heard no blood clots in the lungs either. Quick pitstop at home for some gravol to go and off to UofW for her wellfit class
