I decided to write this discussion because Cheyenne has brought back some times where I was
in his shoes...so this discussion is his fault!!!
In the beginning,,,our internist saw signs of the dreaded b/c,,,sent us to a local urologist...after urine tests,,,a turbt,,,the turbt was on a friday,,,I was given the news after the procedure,on the phone,,at the hospital,,,my husband came home Saturday,,,I knew the news,he didn't........I kept calling,trying to reach the urologist,,what.I have to tell him...NOT HAPPENING....I called Monday,,,when can we come in for a ,heres the news,,,appt....answer,,,,he would call us on speaker phone,its not protocol to have a formal meeting.....THAT WAS ENOUGH FOR ME.... so we sat in our backyard,cell phone in hand and listened,,I kept the secret all weekend,,,it was horrible!!! How could I tell him his bladder had to come out, and he was stage 3.....
Well,,,,I then had the drive to make sure things went differently from then on...how insulting....like its just another day.....
I couldn't get him to the Cleveland Clinic fast enough.........Don't let the medical world treat you unfairly!!!!
To all of us!!!
