Unexpected Email

It’s past 10:30 PM and an email from my surgeon’s assistant just showed up. She is my POC. My email left at 5:15 PM. I didn’t expect a response until tomorrow.

She easily answered our overthought query then added,

You do not need to worry about it, we will take care of everything. Try and have a nice weekend and I will see you Tuesday morning.

I never pondered being at this stage in this process until I got here. Who does? But the attention I’m receiving is reassuring. Remember, in SoCal no one knows me. They’re this nice to everyone.

So, I’ll try and follow the advice. I’ll try and have a nice weekend.

  1. Following your journey there does seem to be a difference in the way things are handled there in California. My friend who had pancreatic cancer was not dealt with in the same manner – in other words, decisions seem to take much longer and with a disease like that I never understood well we’ll see you in 2 weeks type of scenario. The doctors just did not seem to proceed as quickly if that makes any sense. You seem to be in good hands, competent hands. So try and relax enough knowing that.

    Seems like you have a really great team of Drs. Isn’t it nice to be able to reach your dr and get an answer so quickly. Now take your dr advice , Rekax and enjoy the weekend.
