Orientation Yesterday and First Appointment Today

DeBary, FL.

72 deg. overcast, no wind.
Forecast = Partly cloudy with a chance of rain. High of 88F. Winds from the NE at 5 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 20%.

Laura stopped by and picked up Linda and Jim around 12:00 and took them over to the Halifax Medical Center in Daytona Beach. Laura works in the same building that the "New Patient Orientation" was, so she knew exactly where to go.

It would have been a very long walk for Linda so one of the hospital volunteers wheeled Linda to the meeting room in a wheelchair. The orientation was strictly for cancer patients and the different speakers told all about all the services that were available as well as who to call if there are any questions about treatments or procedures.

Both Linda and Jim were pleased with the orientation and were glad that they went.

Today, Linda has an 8:30 AM appointment with the Gynecologist/Oncologist doctor. She's hoping that after seeing him that she will have some answers and an appointment for any needed medical procedures.

Yesterday as they were going to the Orientation, Laura told Linda and Jim that she would be able to take them back over to the hospital this morning. She has to work tonight, but figures that she can get some sleep this afternoon before she has to go in.

Is Laura great or what????? That will take a lot of pressure off of both Linda and Jim as far as getting there on time, especially since the appointment is so early and it's going to be about an hour drive over there with the morning traffic.

Thanks again, Laura!!!! :-)

If they come back with any information/news, I'll be sure to let you know in tomorrow's post.

Did you know that on this date in 1908 - The Model T automobile was introduced by Henry Ford? The purchase price of the car was $850.
