On Thursday, March 9th, 2017, Tom had an appointment with the gastroenterologist in the late afternoon to find out the results of the biopsy from Tuesday’s scope.
Tom went to work that morning and I had kids that day in my child care. I made arrangements to get off early so I could meet Tom and go to the doctor appointment with him.
As expected, the tumor was cancerous. We’d chosen a doctor from the Mercy Clinic in Enid and the receptionist at the gastroenterologist office set up an appointment with him for the following Friday, March 17th.
They also scheduled a PET scan for Monday, March 13th.
We still really had no idea what we were facing. Tom had been so sick that I was worried that we might not even get to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary together that was coming up in December of 2017.
