. . . and waiting . . .

It's Wednesday but no word about surgery.  I called the urology surgeon this morning as instructed last week, but his assistant just said they were still waiting on the vascular surgeon to review and decide.  I got the classic, "We'll call you."

The medication the doctor prescribed on Monday had failed miserably in controlling the hiccups.  Jimmie has had several bouts of hiccups so bad he could hardly catch a breathe of air which was frightening for both of us. Today the oncologist prescribed something stronger and it is working.  Jimmie has actually been sleeping since shortly after taking it - I'm not sure if that is a result of the drug or the exhaustion - but the quiet sounds wonderful.  He definitely needed the rest.
