We have GOT the appointment!


Recommended Posts

After my cell phone messed up and didn't ring yesterday, I found out last night that I had a voice message to call Mayo. I had to wait til this morning to call. :x

Then when I called at 8:01 am (they open at 8:00 am! :lol: ) - their computers were down!

Finally got through and got the appointment at about 10:15 today!

We have to check in at Mayo on Tuesday, April 1, 2003 at 6:45 am.

A little early for this night owl...but we will go over on Monday and check into the motel. :wink:

I am so excited...and bless Mike's heart....He has been so "chipper", full of energy and talking, smiling and laughing SO MUCH more. I don't think either of us realized how much Dr. Doom and Gloom (Forever to be called Dr D&G by me) effected his spirits.

Now - to wait until next week....hurry up and wait...hurry up and wait....I feel like I'm in the Army :shock: ....guess I should...we ARE fighting a very personal war. :?

Shannon, I am so happy that you got the appointment so fast. Man, I'd hate to be those poor cancer cells, with you and Mike and the Mayo going after them- :twisted: "I pitty the fools", they don't stand a chance!!!! Keep us posted, I'll e-mail you my address, maybe a couple of us can be a sort of "tag team" for your news reports, like if someones not home. Safety in numbers and all. Continue to take care Deb

Shannon & Mike, I'm grinning from ear to ear. All news today will continue to be great!!! :lol::lol::lol::lol:

I'm so glad you made this move. Noone deserves bad doctors. The problem is discovering them in time!!! I fired my 1st radiation-oncologist and I firmly believe that my new rad-onc saved my life!!! :lol: for the good doctors and :evil: boo hiss to the bad ones.

Sending positive vibes to wherever you happen to be!! JudyB

What a wonderful way to start the spring!

But wait---you guys getting any spring sunshine yet?

Buy yourself some beautiful flowers. When I switched oncologists I knew immediately it was the right move. We know our gut.

You are an example of why we don't give up.
