My Yahoo horiscope for today reads as follows:
Quickie: Put thought into how to maintain good energy in your life -- and get rid of the bad.
As Ellen is entitled to her opinion and to share her experiences at BI, and so am I.. and so is anyone else that participates on this forum.Ã‚Â I am going to attempt to put an end to this and not in a negative way because I do believe in what my horiscope notes above.
BI is aware of Ellen's situation and what she ran into. I will share that the radio oncologist, himself, is handling the situation with the front desk.Ã‚Â He did not pawn it off on someone else and say "I'm too busy, you handle it".. but he is handling himself.Ã‚Â So, that says a great deal about Dr. Mehatevan and his character.Ã‚Â He is a very busy man and is leading the charge on correcting what happened at the front desk.Ã‚Â So, now that this positive action that he is doing will help to put an end to what happened to Ellen by knowing corrective actions are being put into place, by the lead dr of the CK unit.Ã‚Â He was upset to learn of this and now is taking control of the situation.Ã‚Â Thus, issue is being handled.
As for me... I am happy to report that my tumor has shrunk (based on initial written MRI pre-treat report and 5 month post-treat report). So, BI did well.. and my AN is proof. So, yes, my experience with the treatment team has been positive and I continue to maintain faith in my decision... just as anyone else should in their treatment choices.Ã‚Â My decision for BI to treat me has worked well for me.... so, Ellen has shared her negative issue with them, I share my positive outcome and as becknell notes, we can make our own decisions... and hopefully pre-treatment AN'er will weigh out for themselves.
I have my pirate socks on today for Ellen. I want her to be well and hope that the GK works for her... I wish nothing but wellness and my pirate socks being worn today is a show of solidarity of AN patients.. and my support of her and her choice.
So, know that we are all entitiled to our opinions, our differences, thought processes, etc. Please, let's all not forget the reason we love the ANA board and the support of the ANA... we are here to support each other.. we can agree to disagree... but, we are in the same boat, in many ways, when it comes to our AN's.Ã‚Â Let's show decorum, let show continued support... let's show what it really means to be an AN'er.... we are all here for each other and support is what we need.... please keep that in mind.
Ellen, best wishes, Shana Tova to you and hoping your new year starts off on a terrific note by today's treatment.
(Addendum: BTW, I would like to clarify that it was not me that contacted forum admin about the original post to complain or ask to have it removed. Just to clear that up. Thanks)
