A week ago in my post ‘Central Florida Visit‘, I wrote the following –
This coming Monday I will have an appointment with a new Oncologist Dr. L. with Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida. Per U.S. News & World Report’s Best Hospitals for Cancer rankings 2016-2017, Moffitt Cancer Center is ranked #1 in the Southeast and in the state of Florida and #6 in the nation. After visiting their website and the recent communication I have had so far has me impressed with them and my hope is this feeling will continue after my appointment this Monday.
In a little over a week we will make our way back to Pensacola. Depending on our visits next week, upon our return to Pensacola, our plan may well be to hook the RV to the truck and drive back to central Florida.
In today’s post, I write the following –
That appointment with a new Oncologist Dr. L. with Moffitt Cancer Center took place this past Monday. This visit and the unplanned additional visits had Gary and I extremely impressed and enthusiastic about having my continued cancer care taken over by this new facility. If you read my post ‘Pain Explained?‘, a couple of days ago, you know this week was filled with many tests at my new healthcare provider location. Results of these tests and a course of action will be provided to me early next week.
This past week Gary and I had plans to view some possible locations to live and plant roots for a home base. Because of the results of my CAT Scan last week, and the awaiting of results of this current week’s tests; our plans have changed some and the searching is on hold for now. So, what’s next?
I mentioned in a past post that Gary and I brought his mom to Orlando, Florida back in December. She lives with Gary’s younger brother who lives near Pensacola, Florida. Because the younger brother is having health issues we brought mom here to Orlando to stay with the older brother.
Monday of next week, Gary and I will depart from Orlando and take mom back to the younger brother. Tuesday of next week, I will have my last appointment with my current Urologist Dr. P. in Pensacola. Wednesday of next week, Gary and I will hook the RV on the truck and make our way back to Tampa, Florida.
For the past 8 months we have lived at the RV park on the Naval Air Station Pensacola. For the unforeseeable future, Gary, Roxy and I will live at the RV park located on MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa.
Next week will be a busy week; we are moving to a new location, but more importantly test results and doctor’s visits to determine what is to come next in my battle with cancer.
