Mom's doctors office got her an appointment for this Wednesday to meet with the oncologist and talk about her cancer. In the meantime, he will receive the pathology reports and have time to go over the information. She could end up having a chemo treatment Wednesday after the consultation, so that's a good possibility.
I was hoping for an appointment today, but given the short notice and also the fact that he will have time in the next couple of days to go over the information, Wednesday doesn't seem so bad after all.
The nurse in the doctor office has been on the phone all morning getting the appointments set up and making sure that the reports are faxed over. She has been a great angel to have on mom's side.
The extra two days will also give mom time to get more questions together, she has a list already but wants to think of more things to ask. I have a few things on my list as well... so the poor oncologist will have a nurse with questions and a non-nurse-but-good-reporter-and-writer with questions. From what others have said (positively) about him, he should be able to handle everything just fine.
