Cyclotron Broken Down At UFPTI :(

An extra treatment day was put on yesterday (Sunday 23rd November) to keep up with treatments over the ‘Thanksgiving Holidays’ unfortunately we were called and advised the cyclotron had broken down and was being repaired so no treatments would happen that day 😦

Forward to today (Monday 24th November) and we got a phone call at 08:30am to let us know the machine is still down and they would call us later in the day to advise of timings etc. We received a call from them later in the morning bringing my Doctors appointment forward to today at 13:30 (from Wednesday) during the visit I caught up with a radiologist who explained a leak had been detected and repairs were underway with hopes to re-start appointments later this evening (treating through the night)

Well it’s 21:35 now and we have just heard from them to state no treatments again today 😦

Let’s hope they get back on track tomorrow as today was my only contingency day, 8 more treatments to go with only 7 treatment days before we fly back!
