I had told myself over and over that I wouldn’t get my hopes up that the doctors at the world re-known Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN would give us better news.
Well…..apparently I had subconsciously done just that.
With the likes of Ronald Reagan, Shah of Iran, Tommy Chong, Michael York, the not so illustrious Rev. Jesse Jackson, and many other celebrities and *gasp* ‘famous people’ going there for treatment, it’s GOT to be great right?
I was planning on going to Rochester after work today, spend the night with Nick in his motel, finish up with whatever appointments were Thursday then come home.
He was already home when I got there last night. I literally stood there with my mouth hanging open.
The doctors over in Roch looked over his tests, scans, x-rays, more tests, more scans and stuff.
“We feel the doctors in LaCrosse did a thorough job. We don’t feel there is anymore we, here in Rochester, can do for you. So we won’t waste your time and money. Just go home and enjoy Christmas.”
10-12 months if he does Chemo. Less if he doesn’t.
To say we are devastated is putting it mildly.
I was too stunned last night to feel much.
Today…………is another story.
