@colleenyoung Yes, I feel a great deal of support from family that is not local and friends that are local. My family members have been taking shifts staying with us and helping with the kids. My mom is on her way back this week to stay indefinitely until this is all over. And local friends have been bringing meals, helping with housework, and offering to take the kids often. It doesn’t take my worries away completely, but it helps and I feel very lucky. I’ve been wondering what the process would be like if I were to call another place like Mayo. Would it be a long process of medical record exchange and reviews and wait time until someone could actually look over all of my medical history? I worry that it would delay my treatment that is scheduled to start 5 days from now. And how would sarcoma experts from Mayo be able to consult with my local team of docs?
@me67, thank you for your helpful personal advice… I’m going to look into what can be done on a consultation basis since it isn’t realistic or feasible for me to leave my kids and travel back and forth to a far away place.
