So I got TWO calls from the cancer centre today. I was expecting them to be a cancellation of my liver MRI, since my oncologist didn't seem to think I needed one after all... but that didn't turn out to be the case.
One was to CONFIRM my MRI, and to let me know that yes, on the 5th I need to be there in the morning.
The 2nd was to let me know that Dr. T has asked an associate of his, Dr. Mc, to take me on for consultations.
I had heard about her when I had my check up in the summer; I know she trained extensively with her and they are trying to establish the same type of program that the Calgary center has here in BC. I think its fabulous, and I'm both happy to meet her and to hopefully be part of the program being available to more BC patients. Still, a little part of me is sad that I won't be seeing Dr. T anymore... he really is that amazing.
I also thought that meant that my next follow up would be the 6 month from Dr.T's ( January), but she wants to see me in just over three weeks. Overall I'm feeling a little nervous, but hey... the more information and attention the better.
Finally got to make an appointment with my sister's naturopath for later this month too. I balked a little at the "Oh we charge $150 for new patients", but at the end of the day I just need someone that can see all the issues, bits missing and things I want to accomplish and help me design a nutrition plan.
Today is my son's 9th birthday.... and I feel so blessed to be here to celebrate it with him. :)
