We got called back pretty soon after filling out all the required paperwork, which by the way we are getting pretty good at. I can't tell you how many of those papers we have filled out in the last couple of months. We sat in the exam room for about an hour and half and then we started to feel a little antsy. At the same time Ryan was ready to go to the front office to ask if they had forgotten us, we heard arguing in the hallway directly in front of our door. There were some choice words exchanged by the doctor we were seeing and a staff member. We got from the argument that he was not so happy that we were there, since he had already refused to be the onsite doctor that would work along with the Burzynski Clinic. At that time, I told Ryan and Kass that I would give the doctor 10 minutes to come in the door and if he hadn't I would ask for my $20 copay back and walk out the door. My patience was running thin. Ryan after the 10 minutes stood outside the door and saw the doctor that then informed us he would be in 5 minutes.
When he walked in the door he proceeded to ask Kassidy's medical history with a bit of frustration in his tone. That's when I chimed in and told him we were here because his staff had called us that he wanted to meet with us, but we had already found an MD here in Vegas that would oversee Kass every month for her physicals and signed the 1572 form. That all we needed him for was to be Kass' oncologist here in Vegas just in case we would need him in the future. He then seemed to relax and agreed that there is really no conventional treatment that works on any certain person for this type of disease and that Kass is doing well and right now its probably the best time to try something out of the box that's non toxic and see if it works. That he would like to see Kass after her MRI just to keep an eye on her. We left the office in bettter spirits and surprised by the change of heart, but glad to have a new oncologist who will support us through this treatment. Thank you God! Another answered prayer.
