For Those Of You Following My "Soap Opera"

Not quite sure, but I believe I mentioned an upcoming Urologist visit for my hubby. He has now had another setback. Last week, the Urologist scheduled an in office Cystoscopy for today. He was unable to complete the procedure, but was able to determine that there is a partial bladder blockage due to the inept treatment he received in the Emg. room in Dec. So he is scheduled for surgery to try and repair that on Feb. 22. That's right around the time he'll be getting all his teeth pulled. Still waiting for the insurance authorization for doctor and hospital for that. Can't even fathom all these charges. That will make 5 hospitals and countless doctors since this started, and doesn't even include MDA or any of their doctors or cancer related treatment. Of course, we have insurance, and I'm not really complaining because I know all of us have the medical bills. I'm just overwhelmed.

We were able to complete the lung radiation mapping yesterday. I expect the rads to start around Feb 26. followed by chemo on Feb. 28.

This is so much to have done in a small time span, but he is doing the best that he can.

It's not really a "soap opera" and I'm not laughing, but you all get it.

Please throw good vibes and thoughts, and prayers, if you wish, our way for smooth sailing.

Thanks,

Luv,

Wolfen

I wish you and I could get together tonight and do a couple shots of Jack Daniels. Hope things start to look up soon.

I wish whoever schedules this universe could get his/her act together and give people a break.  Thank goodness for insurance at least...but the rest is too much. I don't blame you in the slightest for feeling overwhelmed.  I hope once you all get through this next stretch, you get a well-deserved chance to take a breath!  AA

So much going on! I'm sorry about the setback and hope things get better with the urology issues. Your hubby must be a real trouper. Well heck, your whole family is. I think things are always better when you have an actual plan with actual start dates and know that something is going to be done. I will join the others in sending good vibes, prayers and thoughts - I think of you all the time because of our mutual situation with our girls, and now with all the other stuff you're facing. Geeze. Sure hoping for some good news to come your way for JBG and your hubby - and the sooner, the better. Take care of YOU too!!!
