    You deserve the hug

    What great news! 

    My Onc hugs me. I take that as a good sign. I can't see that its good for these men and women, who see death all around them daily, getting attached enough to patients. But when they are happy with your continued clear scans and blood work, then I'm sure they feel elation, along with the patient. 

    Keep it up, Harley.

    My radiologist is rather

    My radiologist is rather stoic, not the hugging type. My wife's was a terrific lady at Desert Regional CCC, and she was a hugger, had a real down home style to her......................................................Dave

    Complete turnaround

    My Oncologist is Indian, and could barely look at me when I first visited him. A cultural thing, I hear. Now he hugs the heck out of me.

    My Rad Onc is rather handsome. I'm glad he doesn't hug me  image.
