At 4:45 p.m. this afternoon, I got my second communication from a medical oncologist — today. Dr. Pippas called me this morning and Dr. George emailed this afternoon from his email account at Duke. Since I sent Dr. George access to my MyMDAnderson.org account, I was able to get the latest labs, doctors’ notes, pathology reports and radiology reports to him straightaway.
Dr. Michael Morse heads up Duke’s inpatient HDIL-2 program. Dr. George has already assigned someone to pull my records together so that he and Dr. Morse can discuss my case. If everything looks good, he’ll be in touch to set up a meeting with the two of them and Jill and me.
I’ve said this so many times before: How do these guys do what they do. I know they work ridiculous hours during the day and then they find the time to contact anxious patients on a Sunday, when they ought to be resting. My hat is off to medical professionals everywhere. They are dedicated, good people!
I like the feeling of forward momentum.
