Heading off on a road trip down south tomorrow. Real quick here’s the abridged version of what’s going on:
Sashi is still very sick. Her doctor up in Northern California washed his hands of her saying there’s nothing more he can do.
She has a new specialist in Los Angeles that’s offering some pretty bright rays of hope.
This means ultra bro hangout time at my place for however long doctor visits take! Video games and puppies! (Deeps and Bamboo get along really well.)
We don’t know how long everything will take. We’re expecting at least one more surgery.
Summary: Road trip! Sashi moves in for awhile. Video games and doctors. Maybe video games while we wait for doctors.
wow I finally got my phone consultation with Kim Rhodes’ doctor and I ended up crying for a little awhile afterwards because he pretty much spent a half hour validating all of my pain and feelings and telling me exactly what needs to happen and how much my previous doctor failed me and omfg this guy is pure magic ajksdha and he was like “you should talk to Kim about meditation and relaxing techniques” because he called her his ideal patient because her endo is so bad but she’s managed to “find peace” with it and manages to work and have a family despite it all. And then pretty much told me to get all of my info from the doctor that washed his hands of me and make the trip down to socal to his office. We already have a plan of what to do next and he told me a lot of things that my doctor here didn’t tell me and omg I just lkajhds
I can’t express how much I needed this phone call to go well, you guys. I’ve been in a lot of pain and my doctor telling me that there’s nothing more he can do REALLY squashed all of my optimism. And everything just went so well right now, it’s like a breath of fresh air aakjshda
AWWW YEAAHHHHH ENDO ROAD TRIP.
GET IN MY HOUSE to politely drink tea, play video games, and watch our puppies play.
