History.. need not be lived again

I received a message from MIRT on Friday and they say they have worked out Tanner's insurance issues and they want him to come for all of his tests as soon as possible.

The only thing that will work with Dr. Barlogie's schedule is for us to come for his tests on Thursday and Friday and then wait to see the doctor on Monday afternoon.

They emailed me a copy of the schedule they worked out and his tests start Thursday around 12:30 p.m. and ends with an MRI at 7:45 p.m.  We'll be there all day until late at night, will have to go back on Friday to complete the rest of the MRI, and then wait all weekend to be able to see Dr. B on Monday...

I asked if this just applied to Dr. Barlogie and MIRT and if we would need to see a doctor here in Fort Worth about Tanner's leg since Dr. Nicholas doesn't take Texas Medicaid and Bonnie asked me to give her a few more days to "work on Dr. Nicholas".  I haven't heard anything back yet, but I'm thinking any surgery that might have to be done on Tanner's leg, will most likely have to be done by someone here locally.  When I talked to Dr. Nicholas' nurse, she didn't seem to think it would be a big deal for us to see a local doctor; it's Dr. Barlogie who has issues with us seeing physicians who aren't experienced in Multiple Myeloma.

It will be a long few days but we are anxious to see what this next phase of Tanner's treatment will be.

History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again... Maya Angelou
