Our appointment as it turned out last Friday that was only a run thru scrimage without radiation. Today was supposed to be my first radiation day. Just before we left for UFPTI I got a call that said my appointment had been delayed until Wednesday. While I was sending out emails to friends and family giving them the information, the phone rings and they have now rescheduled me for Thursday afternoon. At this rate we will be here all summer. Also, with Memorial day just around the corner I suspect that will be another lost day. It has now been over 4 months since my diagnosis. All we can do is be patient. I suspect the international conference at UFPTI has something to do with the delay. They said Dr. Nichols had not completed my treatment plan. ?????
We had been hoping to get out of here finished before Debbie's sister has kidney cancer surgery around mid July and be able to make her family annual reunion in Texas during July also. Not sure anymore.
Keep us in your prayer.
