Day 1: MSKCC Consultation

Monday, August 3, 2009

All awake at 0500. Consultation will start at 1300.

-Edited to update-

Early the day, the kids went to a nearby playground at 7am a few streets down from RMH. They came here as well the day before and some of the photos taken.

At 1pm, the appointment with Dr Krushner was set and while waiting, the children were in the playroom like other kids. It is a good enviornment considering that both of them could blend in very well after a few minutes.


There are alot of activities in this room

Shortly after the nurse called in Charmaine for a blood test, and this, kick off the series of her treatment in MSKCC. As expected, tomorrow will be a round of scans and she will need to be fasting from 12mn now.
All this while, while waiting for Charmaine and Cynthia, Jase spent his 5hours playing in the playroom as well as the marine fish found in the waiting area.

And... the DHL boxes finally arrived!

Love, Charlene
