We never did see Dr. M, the neuro-oncologist. She had patients with more urgent needs today. So, Steve was discharged and was told to expect a call from her in the next two days.
We are frustrated that Steve stayed in the hospital for three days to wait for a doctor who never came. But we are thankful to be home now.
Discharge instructions include an MRI in three weeks and an appointment with the neurosurgeon in four weeks. We're not very comfortable with that lag in time and will try to sort out the reasons why on Wednesday when the neurosurgeon's office is open again. Of course, if Steve's symptoms worsen or he develops new symptoms, we'll seek treatment immediately. And we're still considering other opinions.
Happy new year to you all!
