Today we met with the Radiation Team at Backus. Everyone was so pleasant and welcoming! Amber is set to have her first radiation treatment tomorrow.
I was also able to finally set up PT and OT with L&M Hospital. Unfortunately for now, OT will be at the Pequot Health Center in Groton and PT will be with the Waterford Outpatient Rehabilitation Services. Turns out that the OT at Waterford ORS is on family leave and the PT at Pequot HC is leaving. So . . . for now we’ll do both places and hopefully, eventually, we’ll just end up at one place with back to back appointments.
As Amber starts her radiation treatments tomorrow, 5 times a week for 6 weeks, please continue to think of her and pray for her. It’s so scary to think that our little Amber Grace is having radiation. Radiation in hopes that it puts the cancer in remission — or at least puts us one more step in the right direction. I still honestly can’t even believe that I’m saying the word “cancer”. A Glioblastoma Multiforme Grade 4. Am I seriously even writing this right now or am I still in a really horrific nightmare and will wake up to everything being as it was before all this?
