One year anniversary...of my iPad!
I knew what the doctor was going to tell me, because she called me 8 hours after I finished my scan and wanted to see me the next day. Not her usual tactics.
There were no tears, only relief. I was relieved to know that I wasn't crazy. Relieved that I had a name for the flushing. My doctor had already set up a meeting for me with a surgeon who specialized in carcinoid cancer...for the following Wednesday. An appointment that would probably take a month to get was already taken care of. More relief.
But how about that iPad? He's really had a heck of a year! Kept me company on that first 4 hour wait to see the surgeon for five minutes. Spent lots of time with me in the ER. Been to countless doctor's appointments. Came to surgery with me, though he was ultimately brought back home since it was clear that I was too messed up to utilize him.
Best of all, he's kept me in touch with Gavin and my sister, and my mom and dad and Rod. Yay iPad! Congrats on your one year anniversary!
