Guys… thank you so much for your care and concern. In some strange, internet community way it absolutely helps.
We have decided to wait until our designated appointment to see the doctor before we make a huge fuss. This is because I believe we are being seen just about as early as we can. This particular doctor comes highly recommended, and we like his manner. We want him.
When Amy had called their office back to schedule an appointment, the secretary told her it would be end of August.
Amy told her that she was obviously talking to the wrong person.
After a couple of transfers, she got back to the Doctor’s Assistant who set us up with that ‘first day back’ appointment. We don’t want to mess up that relationship… I guess.
At any rate, we’ll see where things go tomorrow at 1pm.
We’ve decided to only tell Tristan that we are being seen by the doctor to go over his scan results. He’s 12 years old, but believe me when I say, he is much MUCH better off not knowing right now… not when there is nothing that can be done about it. He will worry and fret himself to death, and it just won’t do any good at this point.
This whole situation hits Amy and I on and off at odd times, the worry I mean. It very well could be nothing, and that’s what we are hoping, but, unfortunately in this case, I was born with a pretty vivid imagination.
We try not to think about it… we even went ahead to a 20 year highschool reunion and enjoyed it, but mostly, we are focused on spending lots of quality time with him and moving forward.
There is a lot of anticipation (and anxiety) about tomorrow for that same reason, so we can learn what we need to, move forward, and fix it.
Our son is going to be ok.
Thanks again, everyone for your kind words and concern. When Amy and I read your comments, it moved us to tears.
