We were told today at 1PM that mum was on a waiting list for a bed at Princess Margaret hospital but that beds often take a while to secure. By 6PM tonight they had found a bed and mum was transferred by ambulance to PMH. Here she will recover from her most recent surgery and we will meet with the radiation oncologist on Monday morning to determine when radiation will start.
This is a good thing. The Neurosurgeons at TWH will follow her progress and believe that it is in her best interest to begin whole brain radiation as soon as possible. We are happy about the speediness of this transfer and of course like anything else in this journey apprehensive of the next phase of treatment.
Mum has been in pretty good spirits. She certainly does want to go home but maybe being moved to PMH will at least allow her to realize that she is that much closer to going home and be a change of scenery for all of us. I was getting really sick of Toronto Western.
Any questions, please feel free to call me. Of course if I don't answer right away, just leave a message and I will call back.
Looking forward to seeing many of you and thanks again for your ongoing support.
PS - Happy Ukranian/Russian Christmas.
