Dad made it back to Alaska!!

Recommended Posts

My Dad was down in Tucson RVing when his chemo stopped working and he went downhill quickly. (and I don't mean in the RV ) :roll: He had oxygen requirements which were too great to take a commercial airline home so he was flown yesterday by air ambulance from Tucson to Anchorage...yay. I'm so glad he made it home. So now he's in the hospital in Anchorage and guess what? His oncologist is on vacation for a week...great...I didn't find out that would be the case until this morning...I had been planning that she would be our second opinion about whether there are any further treatments available. So I'm working on getting his oncologist in Seattle a copy of the records to review and see if it really and truly is time to throw in the towel. It's so frustrating when you suspect your loved one might be getting second rate care and you live in another state...arggh! Oh well I am bugging the hell out of these people over the phone.
