Farewell to Dr. Adams – Wed. May 7, 2014

Erin saw Dr. Adams, her onocologist, today for the last time. He is retiring in a couple of weeks. She will see Dr. Lallana in the future.

Dr. Adams spent 40 minutes with Erin.  He mentioned that she is cancer free. And that hers is like a static brain injury from a stroke or a fall. He repeatedly told her how well she is functioning. He said that he was communicating with her well, whereas a year or two ago she had a lot more difficulty communicating.

He said that when she gets frustrated that is a good sign. Her frustration is what is driving her improvement. If she were just placid and listless, and passive, she would not improve. 

He wants to stay in touch with her, and he gave her his personal email address.

    Dr. Adams sounds like a great doctor. Nice that he gave Erin his contact information.
