So on the 30th we had our last appointment with the twitty doctor. He just kept yapping about numbers being the same(platelet count that is) and Dan not really having anything so he'll do a couple more chemo sessions and then let it go for 3 mths or so and then at that point do more scans to see if there is a change,etc.
Im SOOOOOOOOOOOO glad we dont have to deal with him again. Even if the new doctor says the same things if he can at least say it in a kind and non-freak out on ya way that will be helpful and better. Tired of a doctor who treats us like morons and keeps changing his thoughts every other sentance. I want a consistant, caring doctor and I dont think its too much to ask for and neither does Dan.
So Dan did get chemo, first time in nearly 6 wks, and its killing him. He was so tired(typical) yesterday after we got home and then was having chest pains(not cool) and today he's spent all day in our room cuz he's felt flu-like and feverish(can be typical reaction to chemo). Most of this is pretty typical especially since he's not had it in so long. Poor guy, wish I could take some of the pain and ick away even if only for a short while.
So thats where we are at. Next Wednesday is a new doctor and hopefully the start of a new "day" where we can understand the doctor and he understand us and we can work together to get this tended to.
I realize Dan probably wont survive this but that doesnt mean we give up or stay with a doctor who is a twit. Nope we will go down fighting!
*and I want to say a special thank you to those who have read this and commented and those who have supported us in other ways. I appreciate knowing we are thought about and loved and wished well*
