I told you that Ted would be see the oncology/cardiologist today. Yesterday morning we get a call from Ted's cancer doctor. Dr. Birhiray ask why we did not keep our appointment on the 4th. Ted told him . One of your nurses called and said Dr.B is all done with you... because Ted was going to be getting a bone marrow transplant at Franciscan Hospital...once they found a match. Now this is why I tear my hair out. The poor communication... Dr. B. said "No I am not done with you. I want you to start a round of chemo".
So yesterday we tore to Indy...long enough for the Dr. to shake our hands ask a few questions and hand us a paper so Ted can get 5 chemo treatments at the Riverview Hospital In Noblesville, closer to where we live. Five minutes with the Dr. Why? He could have faxed the papers to the hospital and ask the few questions over the phone. Or his nurse could have. We drove 50 miles for this, got lost looking for this office, as Dr. B. has many offices. We almost get hit by an ambulance and by the time we are in the right parking lot...I just start crying. But once we get the papers....it's back to Riverview and Ted gets an infusion. It's milder, he did well with it.
These 5 infusions are to keep him in remission. Dr, B. does not want him to get the cancer back and be at square one again...well we sure do not want that either.
So we had to cancel the oncology/cardiologist appointment for now. This is where Ted will be the rest of this week. everyday for a couple hours.
This is the chapel, so pretty and calm. I prayed here today.
I will be in this chapel for a while each day.
Monday was crazy hectic. Today was much smoother. This is the sun setting into the woods down the road yesterday evening....as if nothing happened. Believe me dear friends, I need these sweet moments.
Thank you all for your good wishes and prayers. We truly are grateful for each of you. XO
