Waiting: Winship Oncologist Appointment Tomorrow

Recent Entries · Archive · Friends · Profile

* * *

My appointment with my new oncologist at the Winship Cancer Institute is tomorrow, making it exactly three weeks since the CT scan which identified the tumor in my head.

All this waiting has been maddening.

We tried to get me in last week, but no go. I do not think the folks in charge of coordinating appointment times share our sense of urgency. And I know it’s futile and pointless to think like this, but I can’t help but wonder: the tumor grew to 6cm in approximately three months. How much larger has it grown in the time I’ve been stuck in a holding pattern, waiting? *flail*

That amount of time is ridiculous. If I remember right, Jeffrey's surgery was about 4 days after the MRI.

I wish his blog was still active so you could read his story again, but alas....he must have let it go.

I suppose we did have some wait time though, waiting for the biopsy results...you're one step ahead of where he was at this time so that's something!

Do well! I'm right down the street if you or your husband need anything.
