Kelly’s Doctor phoned this morning about 11:30. On the recommendation of the medical tumor board they want Kelly to first have another abdominal scan in early January as well as a consultation appointment with another specialist who will do an ultra-sound guided endoscopic biopsy after that. Her London Doctor is now setting up those appointments so I think it is almost safe to say we will not be heading for the Southwest this winter. If by chance her abdominal scan is early January and the the other two appointments are not until late March or April then maybe we might have a small chance to slip away right after her scan in early January but who knows. We’ll just have to wait and see what dates the appointments and procedures will be. Kelly’s health and well being comes first and that is our priority………………..
GROANER’S CORNER:(( Hello. Could you connect me to the person who gives information about patients? I'd like to find out if a patient is getting better, doing as expected or getting worse." The voice on the other end said, "What is the patient's name and room number?"
"Sarah Finkel, room 302." "I'll connect you with the nursing station . . . ." "3-A Nursing Station. How can I help you?" "I'd like to know the condition of Sarah Finkel in room 302." "Just a moment. Let me look at her records. Mrs. Finkel is doing very well. In fact, she's had two full meals, her blood pressure is fine, she is to be taken off the heart monitor in a couple of hours and, if she continues this improvement, Dr. Cohen is going to send her home Tuesday at noon." The woman said, "What a relief! Oh, that's fantastic... that's wonderful news!" The nurse said, "From your enthusiasm, I take it you are a close family member or a very close friend!" "Neither! I AM Sarah Finkel in 302! Nobody here tells me a damn thing!!!!!
