Hi VP's...Just a quick little update. Believe it or not we left for radiation at 1:45 pm and were back home by 3:00 pm...and that was radiation and a drive over to the Starbucks so I could get a venti ice coffee. That's also with me taking the LONG way home. Simply amazing. Yep! Emily was running the radiation machine today. Now this is the way it's supposed to work. Imagine this also...Emily just moved patients around to minimize patient waiting and keep the schedule on time. A novel idea!!! I'm going to write her a really nice commendation when this is all over. When I called this afternoon, I got Lucky on the phone who said they were on time to which I told him that that was what he said all the time and yet when we get there we wait for an hour and a half!! Do you think he got the message?
I also got some good meds in Brenda before we left and that really calmed her through the treatment...yep...she was out of it but that was a good thing. She was nice and mellow and not in any pain. That's just what the doctor ordered!! Now she's resting comfortably on the couch and when she wakes up we'll get another can of juice in her. Then I'll try for another 2 cans throughout the night and we'll have gotten the right amount of callories in her for the day. Which reminds me...I've got to get some more of that juice...we've almost gone through the entire case.
Just thought you'd like to know that your prayers, positive energy, some good meds and our dear Emily have really done the job today...SUCCESS!!! YEA!!
