Today I meet with one of the TOP doctors that specializes in the Heated Chemo treatment and surgery.  I have been counting down the days until I meet with this doctor in particular, because I am hopeful that he will be IT...the doctor to help me BEAT this!  I have so many questions for him and I have heard that he is just a fountain of knowledge.  They say he is also amazingly compassionate and patient focused as well as being one of the top in his field.  I'll post more tomorrow to let you know how it goes.

I bought a digital voice recorder and it has been amazing because I have recorded all of my appointments and can come home and upload them to my Itunes and put them on my ipod.  There is so much information that doctors give...it is just hard to digest all of it at once.  It has also been nice to be able to email my family so that they can listen and understand what I am facing!!

Today I love Mondays...because I am hopeful that this is an important day in my journey!!!

Good for you, Shanda! The recorder is a great idea. I'm sure it's too much to digest everything at once. Also- thank you for sharing your journey with us. We love and support you.
