tiredmom959 Posted April 18, 2007 Share Posted April 18, 2007 Everyone knows the power of positive attutide, but the thing that has gotten my mom so far in her fight this last year has been her oncologist. When she was first diagnosed, there was a doctor filling in for the oncologists she was going to have -- it was over a weekend. We knew no one to request, so we were taking who the hospital gave us. This doctor gave her a very grim outlook, not much information, pretty cold, and we were devastated. Very early that Monday morning (5:30 a.m. or so), the actual oncologist she was going to have came in. He put his hand on hers and said, "I think I can make you better". She loved him from that point on, and he sure kept his word. Now, much to our dismay, although he's only 52 years old, he is RETIRING!!!!!! We are in Pittsburgh and he says he needs more sun. My mom is so upset, she teased him at the last doctor appointment she is following him to Florida (where is he moving to). She's even offered to follow him around with a sunlamp! Her surgeon was good, too, but this oncologist is exceptional. His name is Felixberto Lim and he's with the UPMC Cancer Center/Hillman Cancer Center in Pittsburgh.
