I hate hospitals! Let me repeat that....I hate hospitals. My DH and I were told to be there at 7 am. We didn't have to wait too long until he was called back for the ultrasound of his thyroid and it only took maybe 45 minutes. Not bad right? What they failed to tell us is that he wasn't scheduled for the lung biopsy until 12 noon. So we sat and waited and waited. Finally it was his turn and they told me that when they were finished doing the biopsy, he would have to stay for 3 hours afterwards for them to watch him. I went home and they told me they would call me when to come back for him. I did. I received a call from a nurse about 1:30 telling me that he was scheduled for a chest xray at 2 and that he would be ready to leave by 3. Fine. I was at the hospital about 10 minutes before 3 and they still hadn't done the chest xray that was suppose to be done at 2. At 3:30 they did the xray and the doctor read it and they discovered that the hole which they made with a needle to take some of the cells hadn't closed up and he would have to wait till 5:00 to have another chest xray. Now you must remember that DH hadn't had anything to eat or drink since the night before and here it is almost 4 till they finally gave him a bottle of water. Finally at 5:30 the doctor came in and told us that the second xray looked the same as the first and that he might as well go home. After fighting rush hour traffic we made it home by 6:15. Almost 12 hours at the hospital for 2 procedures that were only suppose to take about 4 hours and all you hear are excuses.
The doctor did tell us that he doubts there is anything in his thyroid and that he was only able to get a few cells of the lung and that he hoped he got enough. Now that's just what you want to hear right?
So now we sit and wait for the results and again, thank you for all your prayers and best wishes.
