Trip To Marion

Brief Update!

April 18, 2017 - We went to Marion, IL for a couple appointments. Chad had an ultra sound on his kidney and they ran a bunch of blood work and have him doing some other tests. I thought they were doing an actual procedure to test the functioning of his kidneys but apparently not.

We also met with his new oncologist. Her name is Dr. Sujatha Rao. She seemed nice enough but we basically just spent the whole appointment watching her dictate notes about Chad and his medical history.

It was just bizarre because all the information was there already and had she reviewed this prior to us getting there, it would have went much more quickly. With that said, she seemed nice enough and gave a decent first impression. She attempted to change his Scan/Blood Work schedule but I told her we preferred to stick with Dr. Sardi's schedule and she was totally fine with that, so that was great! The appointment was just a general check-up, so nothing to report.

April 26, 2017 - Chad has a follow-up Consult with Dr Hall, his neurosurgeon. I imagine we will schedule his neck surgery. This has me nervous.

April 27, 2017 - Chad had a Consult with a General Surgeon here in Murray to have his hernia repaired.  Talk about things coming full circle. The surgeon who he has the appointment with? The same Dr. Swain who first found Chad's cancer. Crazy!

Thanks, as always, for your love, prayers and support! x
