I just got an e-mail from MD Anderson Cancer Center, and I have been assigned a patient access specialist. A patient access specialist is the person who coordinates my trip, makes sure I have all my paperwork in order, and that the doctors have all the information they need. Th good thing is I might not need to spend my entire visit in the hospital. I may get a few chances to stay in a hotel, and I guess since people travel to there a lot to get help the hospital worked out some deals with the local hotels and I will get a discount on my hotel stay. The hospital looks huge, and I’ve been to NIH before and I thought that place was big…. but this place seems like it may be bigger. I can’t wait to go there. I am feeling very confident in this. I think the doctors there are very knowledgeable and seem to have a genuine interest in their work as well as making people better. Well.. fingers crossed for now!
