LATEST EXPERIENCE AT CLEVELAND CLINIC WITH DH..................

Wednesday, July 10, 2019

We left home 9 AM for the Clinic, got there a little after 11 AM. DH had his blood work done, then a CT scan. , Then went upstairs & DH signed in to see the Oncologist, nurses etc. We waited for over 2 1/2 hrs. for them to call him back. I glad I brought a bunch of magazines for both of us ! We went through them all. It was so cold in there, I had a cup of hot chocolate & DH had coffee. All his blood work was good, except his kidney function was a up a little. Oncologist come in, ( but it wasn't his regular one, he was at a seminar) So his partner covered . They work together so he knew all about DH's case. Infact we met him at the last Kidney Cancer Foundation Seminar. He told us the CT scan showed a little start of new growth of the cancer. My heart sank !!!! Right away he said not to worry, they were going to increase his dosage 1 more milligram once a day, other wise, he wants hi to take the 3 mg. of his chemo pill in the AM. like he has been, but 4 mg. in the PM. & come back in a month to see how he's doing. This Dr. is sooooo.......... nice, friendly, funny, kind, & a darn good DR. to be working with DH's Dr. Rini. He's Jewish, about 40'ish, really cute, & down to earth !!! When he was leaving us, he told us Laura (DH's nurse) would be in shortly. Were sitting the for about 1/2 hr. and the door opens, were thinking it's the nurse, It was Dr. Moeshe ( his first name) Last name is Orstein. Fine Jewish name. ; } He just stuck his head in the door & said Laura will be in, we haven't forgotten you. We all laughed. I forget what else was said, but it was funny ! Well, we waited over an hour for her !!! We always saw her before the Dr., then she would leave, then she'd come back with the Dr. It was all backwards today. She asked John a few questions, then told me to call her if any thing happens, she don't care how little. I always do anyway ! Then she goes to get his pills (chemo) We wait again. It was after 4 PM we finally got out of there, go downstairs, then had to wait about 15 min. for our car. We headed for home, got something to eat at a Mexican resturant. I had my usual, Steak Fajita (no sour cream) & an order of sweet potato fries. They make the best fries !!! I only ate about a third of it, brought the rest home. DH had a Mama Mia Burger with fries. He brought 1/2 his home. Everything was good.
They had 2 people singing, guy also played guitar. Both were good, the guy could use a few voice lessons though. LOL It was nice, they sang a few songs from the 70's & 80's. She had a pretty good voice !
It was 9 PM when we got home. I got ready for bed, then did SP, then back up to bed about 12 AM. It was a long day so fell asleep pretty fast till about 5:30 AM, then I was waking up on & off till the alarm went off 8 AM. It was just a regular day, Did my exercises after the AM ritual, then washed a few things out by hand.
It got soooooo........ humid this afternoon !!! 91 degrees. Now yesterday was beautiful, especially up in Cleveland, there was such a nice breeze there !
That's our Clinic experienc for this trip.
I'm still praying for more shrinkage. or even a Miracle healing ! I'll never give up on either !!! It will be 5 yrs. Aug. since DH's diagnosis. I thank God for each & every one of them !

Take care, keep safe & God Bless !
KEEP SPARKLING !!!
Love ya', Flutterfli emoticon

    That was quite a day for you guys!! I don't like that kind of waiting. I know I have been forgotten at times when in the office and someone will stick their head in the door thinking the room should be empty. Then action happens. Hope your day tomorrow isn't as humid. I did a blog about our day here too.

    What an ordeal!! Waiting seems to be part of a doctor's visit anymore. Prayers that the increased dosage shrinks the new growth. There is power in prayer.

    Dinner out sounds good, especially after the day you had.
