So the scans looked so much better and the Y90 did an amazing job but Brad has been so sick, can’t eat, super swollen abdomen and in bed. Dr P referred him to a Hepatologist to address the issues his angry liver is causing.
We went in Monday expecting to be sent to the hospital to be admitted and got sent home with the suggestion that he just needed to let the diuretics work. Poor Brad was soooo miserable so I got on the phone and worked my way through the system telling everyone that would listen that he was so sick and needed help. I got a call from a scheduler saying the one and only appt for the rest of 2019 was Sept 3rd! Omg devastation!!! I sent Brad that text…
About an hour later I got a call from a really great nurse saying she had begged and moved things around and got him an appt on Thursday 8/15. Thank You Jesus! Then she called to say he could go to the hospital today to get his stomach drained. We literally rejoiced! He told me he was ready to go to the ER so I’m so thankful it fell into place to see our people and not get all dramatic and dragged out in an ER.
Today was a long morning waiting to drive over at 12:30 but worked out because it was Whitney Jane’s first day in her nursing program. I was able to take some first day pics.
So off we went and thankfully the staff at KU Med is top notch! I’m so proud of my alma mater for employing amazing people and obviously providing incredible training! We have the opposite experience at his primary care doctors office which is getting fired this month. I DO NOT HAVE TIME for rude ass people or people who can’t make a simple action happen that I KNOW can happen in billing. Come on people!!!!! I’ve been dealing with a visit from January 18th that was coded wrong and I’m down to a $50 prostate test. I’m here to tell you I will NOT pay that bill! Those people are going to wish they had a new job when I show up the next time I get a bill. Just sayin….
So today went well, Brad went home feeling great with Pep in his step and we even went on a quick dinner date during soccer practice. As with this whole process we are so thankful for good days and right now GOOD stretches of time.
Please continue to pray mostly for comfort as I think that’s the number one need! Mind body and spirit, we see God’s hand in all we are going through and are so thankful. ✝️💙
