Friday was my last official chemo treatment at Mayo Clinic. My insurance company had allowed a GAP exception for me to even be treated at Mayo (since they are "out of network") when this whole thing started but only for 6 months. I had to say goodbye to some of my favorite chemo nurses. There were tears, hugs and some laughs. Deron and I have really come to love all of our nurses. They have been so wonderful to us. My scans will actually be completed the day after Easter and get our results that Friday the 17th with our Oncologist at Mayo. That will be our last time at Mayo. Since my treatment is available at other "in network" facilities we will have to continue care at an "in network" provider...you've got to love insurance companies! We are looking into the Cancer Treatment Centers of America which is 5 minutes from the house and also the Palo Verde group has come highly recommended to us as well. They have an office in the neighboring city, Avondale, which is about 10 minutes away. Given the sensitive nature of my liver surgery and the fact that there are only a handful of liver specialists in the country, my insurance company will allow me to have my surgeries at Mayo. We have heard many wonderful things about Dr. Zafar at the Palo Verde group and my Aunt Kathy has met him and really liked him. So if we didn't have enough stress this past week, which we over came...we now have another hurtle to over come this next week. We will be praying that God sends us in the right direction on who to trust my life with. Please be praying with us.
