Cardiologist visit

Yesterday I heard an oncology patient complaining that he just finished 4 hours of chemo and that he has to come back for more…  In a month’s time…

It was at that moment that it really hit me how much more intense Woutertjie’s treatment is.  He is receiving 4 hours of chemo every day for two weeks.  I overcame the urge to give a reality check to the adult.  I deserve a prize for my self control.

The cardiologist, Joan Hunter at Louis Leipoldt MediClinic, gave Boeta the green light today.  She says that there is fluid in his heart sac (pericardial effusion) but she isn’t worried about it at the moment.  It will have to be monitored though.  Dr Hunter was the first to tell me about the cancer in Boeta’s heart.  As we were leaving today she mentioned that she didn’t expect to see Boeta again after that first sonar.  That was 5 January. 

We’ve come a long way.
