One Thing After Another Here

Well, his 8 years of complete remission spoiled us.  The last 2 years have been chaotic!

Dom finished up his 5 days of radiation on his broken collarbone and ribs.  We went in to see our Slidell oncologist on Monday.  He did blood work and made us an appointment with Dr. Safah at the Tulane Cancer Center in 3 weeks.

We were tickled!  Three weeks off!  YAY!

Not so fast…the phone rang around noon on Tuesday.  “Dominic needs 2 units of blood!  Come in today to be matched, then go to the hospital for a Transfusion on Wed”.

We drove into Slidell.  (100 miles round-trip).  They did their blood thing and scheduled us for a transfusion at 8:30 the next morning.

Back to Slidell.  SOMEONE told us that it would be about 2 hours.

They were sadly mistaken.  We were at Slidell Memorial Hospital for 7 1/2 hours!  What a long day.

We were hoping that he would perk up today, but that’s not the case.  He’s exhausted.

So, that’s what’s new here.

Going to Tulane Cancer Center in NOLA on the 21st.  We’re afraid to answer the phone!
