If anyone has some spare prayers they could send, that would be great.
My father in law went in for some surgery about a week or so ago. He had some lumps on his neck to be removed. Should have been a pretty simple surgery as he'd had a similar procedure done about 6 months ago behind his ear with no complications.
Well the surgery was not so simple. When the Dr opened him up, the lumps were determined to be cancer.
My mother in law was a nurse for over 40 years, so she knows the procedures and protocols inside out and backwards. She was told by the surgeon's receptionist that she would have a follow up appointment the next morning with the surgeon to see what happens next....course of action, treatment, etc.
So she calls the surgeon's office the next morning and finds out that the surgeon has left and is on his way to Ottawa. Which is 8 hours from here! Really?!?! Are you f*cking kidding me??? You just found out that your patient has cancer and you can't be bothered to meet with his wife to discuss what happens next.
So the receptionist booked a follow up appt for Tuesday which was 2 days ago. They only spoke to the nurse!! The surgeon didn't even come into the room to talk to them!! What kind of Dr doesn't follow up with his patient?!?! So needless to say my mother in law is beyond p!ssed.
We went to visit them at home on Sunday to see how he was doing. Wow I was not prepared for that. The whole left side of his face looked like it was paralyzed. His face was droopy, and his left wasn't even blinking. And he had a huge lump on the side of his face right by his eye. He looked so frail and awful. I literally had to hold back tears and so did hubby.
We are all really thinking it's a possibility that the Dr hit a nerve (which would explain the paralyzed look). And the Dr doesn't want to meet with them cause he knows he f*cked up.
So I'm asking for some prayers of healing. Thank you everyone
