Today we are in for chemo 5. My intention was to arrive at 7:45. Beat the school traffic, take the faster way, you know...
I was barely on pace to make it as it was when I noticed Musical Daddy's phone on the bathroom counter. He was gone and was supposed to go on a trip. He needed it, no question. I rushed us out of the house and went to his school. Luckily he answered his office phone. What I should have done was to get our stuff and then go, but I didn't realize that we had that kind of time.
So, instead of 7:45 it was closer to 8:15, even though we didn't leave the house too much later. But then there was more traffic and...and...
Our late arrival meant a longer wait in admitting. There was a delay in getting the room. Which meant that they didn't get anything started until 10:30. Port was accessed at 11:00. Hydration check at 1:00. Chemo begins this afternoon, instead of this morning, pretty much guaranteeing an extra night here. All over a delay of a few minutes.
Now I know to talk to Patient Relations when we have issues in admitting.
The Boy seems to be feeling fine. He was naturally a bit antsy at all the waiting.
More updates to come.
