The Transplant Center

Bob and I went down to the Bone Marrow Transplant Center this morning to have our consult with the Transplant Specialist. That's Dr. Dean. I carted my 'films' with me (my CAT Scans, I carry them everywhere these days.)

I like Dr. Dean quite a bit. He examined me and told us what to expect in the coming months and was quite willing to answer questions about things like immunological function as it relates to Hodgkins. Not stuff I really need to know, or that anyone necessarily knows the answer to. I had shingles three times before I was diagnosed with Hodgkins, and no one can know if that's related, but it's not stupid to wonder.

I like people who think I'm not stupid. I like doctors who talk to me. Bob gave him the address for my blog, so if you're reading this, Hi Dr. Dean. And thanks.

I love liking my doctors. (Yes, that's a horrid sentence, but really: if you're going to put your life into someone's hands, it's really so much better to like the person with the hands, and to feel that he's listening to you.) I'm so glad Dr. Dean is a mensch.
