Ok . . . A little confusion with the slides. I guess that is normal with someone who just had their brain operated on. : )
Here is what has happened in the last 24 hours . . . . Barnes sent our slides back to St. John's Mercy Center by noon today. (My slides were considered St. John's property and Barnes wasn't allowed to ship our slides directly to Houston.) At 4pm today (Tuesday), St. John's Center had our slides sent by overnight UPS to MD Anderson, Houston. Once tracking number has been confirmed by Candie in the brain & spine business office she will then contact us (Wednesday) with the first available appointment with a neuro-oncologist. We desire to see Dr. Yung (chair) or Dr. Gilbert. Please pray for a quick opening especially with Dr. Yung. A big "thank you" to Candie at MD Anderson. She is really a big help during this time. She really knows what she is doing.
Once we have a scheduled appointment, we will fly to Houston. The appointment could range from 7 - 10 days out. We will be staying at a Marriot Hotel - many thanks to Pop Pop Snodgrass and his bonus points. Dave & I are looking forward to some quiet time together in Houston. We might even have time to take in some sights - just him & I. Carter & Cole are looking forward to a special gift from Houston. They even love the airplane snacks. (It's the simple things in life that are special.) Stuart will appreciate anything. He will be most happy to have mom back home to cuddle with. Oh, please still pray for his cold. He is sleeping well but, the cold still needs to run its course. My cold is gone. Yeah!
I need to get going . . . A good game of sock tag is happening upstairs. I will try to explain later what that is in our home. It is a Hoot! Lots of laughter and running. Of course, it is safe. We have "Safety Dave" in this house.
