I'm seeing the oncology team of Dr's Uhl and Lee at the Cleveland Clinic in Wooster. I had nothing against Dr. Stallings I just had some prior wonderful experience with the CC when my dad was sick years ago. And my sister goes there for her Lupus.
They have been great so far and I feel very confident in their care. It was because of their being on the cutting edge of medical advances that I was able to have this test. There is really very little out there about it, I'm not sure many oncologists are using it yet.
I have to share my experience with my DD tonight with all of you. She has been very anxious about whether or not I was going to be getting chemo. I had her prepared for it in case and she had gotten to the point where she was able to think of positives. For example the other night while I was taking a bath she came in to "keep me company". While I was shaving my legs she said "hey Mom, if you have to get chemo you won't have to shave your legs!" And we came up with a slew of positives; no tweezing eyebrows, no coloring my grey hair, no shaving underarms etc. So tonight she says out of the blue "do you know yet what treatment you're going to have yet Mom?" We hadn't told her yet we were waiting to do it at the dinner table. And my DH and I just looked at each other. We said dinner will be ready in a couple minutes we'll tell you then. But she couldn't wait. So we told her and she smiled so big and hugged me over and over. I don't remember the last time she hugged and kissed me so much!!! The funny thing was we didn't know when we were going to be getting the results back and hadn't told her when to expect them. It's like she sensed it!
Today has been such a joy! Thank you all for sharing it with me!!! I'll still be on here just as much as I will need you all for advice for the rads.
