Hello All....

The word for today is slow. Peggy and I had an appointment to see Dr. Barlogie at 1:00pm. Well we got motivated and showed up at 10am. We were hoping that by showing up early, we would get seen sooner and get out fast. Makes sense right....

As I mentioned we arrived at 10:00, signed in, and sat down in the waiting room. We sat, and sat, and sat, and sat.......we were doing our best imitation of Horten the Elephant. Finally at 3:45pm, the Dr. came in. We didn't leave till 5:30. No one ever said healthcare (cancer care) was fast.

The highlight of our day was eating the free peanut butter cups and crackers that were placed in the patient lounge. That, and later when I told the nurse that I was having trouble seeing when my eyes were closed. It actually took her a couple seconds before she looked up from her computer screen adn smiled. Those were the highlights from today.

Anyone want to come join us for all the fun?
Thursday we report for the 1st round of chemo. There will be three total, then my stem cells will be given back to me.
I am so hungry, I gotta go!

Frank & Peggy & my Mom - signing off......
