I finally have the brief opportunity to let everyone know what our week looks like before it actually happens. Having said that, our best laid plans always seem to get thrown off, but it currently appears as though the plan looks like this:
Tuesday Dec 8 early morning – Ben will go for a chest xray and see the Respirologist in the morning for a follow up regarding his lungs.
Tuesday Dec 8 late morning – Ben will go to VGH to be admitted
Wednesday Dec 9 – Dr H will perform the cordotomy, which will go swimmingly well with zero complications and Ben will be pain free
Thursday Dec 10 – Ben will be released from hospital and will jog out to the parking lot while I struggle to keep up with his pain-free jaunt
Thursday Dec 10 – Ben currently has an oncology appointment and blood work scheduled for the morning in Burnaby. He won’t be able to make this appointment so it is my plan to beg them to change it to the afternoon. Fingers crossed.
Friday Dec 11 afternoon – second treatment of Nivolumab
Saturday Dec 12 – rest, recover, and revel in Ben’s lack of pain while the Nivolumab continues to course through his veins and heal his body.
Sunday Dec 13 – spend an hour in church appreciating what we do have, and thanking God for all our doctors, our family, our friends, the constant demonstrations of love, and all we have been blessed with in our time of need.
Thank you, everyone. xo This is for all of you:
