Three months ago June 6th was marked on the calendar. It was the day we were to meet with the surgeon to find out if all the treatment worked and if Will was cancer-free or not. June 6th has arrived and it was not even close to what we would have pictured this day looking like.
Here we are… in Phoenix, Arizona … the temperature – 111 degrees. The day started early with the taking of vitals… probably for the 1000th time, blood drawn, followed by a Vitamin C IV. We met with the doctor for a couple of hours. He was wonderful. Very thoughtful, caring, extremely passionate and very knowledgeable about what they do and how they approach treatment. (They are still working on Will’s final treatment plan and will discuss it with us tomorrow.) Will was given 2 large jars of green juice and my parents and I were given a delicious raw, vegan lunch.
The atmosphere was full of joy and hope with undivided attention on Will’s needs. In the afternoon, they even closed off an entire room for Will to take a nap while my parents and I took a tour of the 2 different locations (within blocks of each other). That was the longest and farthest Will and I have been apart probably since January and we both didn’t think a thing about it. By the end of the day, Will seemed more hopeful and happy than I have seen him in quite awhile. We were both very impressed with the clinic and could not have asked for a better day.
Tomorrow morning will start a bit earlier with a “cooking” class on soup. It looks like Will and I might be at the beginning stages of becoming raw vegans… and we’re pretty excited about it :)
