On another note, I do want to say how absolutely wonderful the doctors (and entire staff) are here. It is a dramatic difference from what we experienced in Columbia. We paged the doctor yesterday to see what time he thought he would be by in the afternoon because we had to leave to change hotels, and he asked what time would be good for me. How nice is that? Even the doctor we saw on Monday when we went in for the clinical visit has been by every day to check on us and Mike, and she’s not even considered to be his main doctor at this point. While it would have been nice to get up here last week so that we would probably not be in this predicament, we are extremely blessed that Mike was scheduled to be at Duke when all of this happened. I firmly believe he has the best care available in the country here.
One other thing…I seem to be getting a more regular cell phone signal now, so if you leave me a message, I should be able to get back in touch with you.
