stalkers

13 08 2009

Walking into your patient’s ICU room to be greeted by five more sets of eyeballs and ears than normal must be an interesting sight. Particularly at 6 a.m.

Nevertheless, we got all 3 docs in succession. Oncologist, ENT, plus pulmonologist too. Oncologist had still not compared new MRI to old, so I whipped out that handy-dandy CD copy I had on me again. He took it with him to give to the radiologist.

I called his cell again at 11 a.m. to allow time for that comparison, and we’ve got the official word that our initial impression of the MRI last night IS correct, and that we’re indeed in the comfort-care-planning stage.

He’s referring us to a different M.D. that specializes in end-state planning. We’ll meet with her sometime today.

If not, we’re well trained in the art of stalking.
