Dig my new look? *laughs* Sorry about the notebook page but I took my shower before taking my photo today and I’m just not comfortable showing you my uncovered head just yet. I’m not sure I ever will. I promised you at least a photo a day and I promised me that I’d keep documenting this process so it’s a notebook page tonight.
I actually had a big day today. I changed oncologists. Let me start by saying that my first oncologist wasn’t a bad doctor and he didn’t do anything wrong. He and I just didn’t gel. Last week I contacted my neurosurgeon’s nurse and asked if they’d chosen the first oncologist for me. I was fully prepared to stick it out if they had because I have all the faith in the world in them. They hadn’t and so they suggested two other doctors, both women. This morning I got an e-mail from Elizabeth, Dr. Bussey’s nurse informing me that they’d spoken to Dr. Hughes and that all I had to do was call the radiation oncology department and ask to change doctors and make an appointment with Dr. Hughes. I feel so relieved. I have an appointment to meet her next week.
You know I felt guilty and uneasy changing doctors, like I was ratting the first guy out but in the end I can feel it my gut that I made the right decision. Like my friend Angel so wisely wrote today, “if it’s a bad fit with a doctor, you won’t get anywhere–fast.”
