With all that you juggle in your life, thank you so much for taking the time to post this to me.
I had gone back and re-read your dear Ralph's bio. after Mom met with Dr. Chabot in Aug. and read what you had written about Dr. Peter Stevens. Mom had already scheduled EUS at Columbia with another doc. (no doubt competent as well) but it was distinctly because of what you had written about Dr. Stevens that I called my Mom and urged her to re-book her EUS with him.
She did so, and that comforted me that she would be in the BEST of diagnostic hands.
My sister said Dr. Stevens was extremely kind and patient when she did track him down, so to speak. Can only imagine how busy and demanding his days are!
(Personally, I was UPSET with my sister/Dad for leaving the 13th floor area during the test...DUH, me, I wouldn't have done so). They are short-sighted sometimes, and I admit it tests my patience.
My Mother's pancreatic issues are complex, I think, and I feel sure we will end up with proper diagnosis and guidance, at least.
I am grateful to you and Ralph for all you do to help. Keeping you in heart and thoughts, always.
