I have had 5 sessions so far, all been ok but think I can feel it a little now (feeling stiff) Got a doctors appointment tomorrow before my next session (happens once per week) to keep a check on how things are going.
We also celebrated my daughters 17th birthday ‘American Style’ tonight at The Cheesecake Factory, awesome food again and were joined by our new ‘Scottish Friends’ we have met at the Proton Centre 🙂
Had a lie in today after the travelling yesterday!
Called for a cab to pick us up (all cabs paid for by Proton Centre) and take us across town to Enterprise where our hire car was ready to be picked up, also arranged by Proton Centre. Arriving at Enterprise we were greeted by a very nice lady called Karlyn who did all the paperwork and escorted us to our car, we have a Toyota Corolla for now but she said this can be changed during our visit if we wish.
Drove to Proton Centre (well got lost on the way!) for a tour at 4pm, met Bradlee who showed us around (we were the only people for the tour that day) The centre is amazing, well I guess thats what you get when you have to pay for health care! Tour lasted around 1 hour and there were plenty of times to ask questions along the way. We also met Tracy Edwards (our Social Worker) who kitted us out with a Sat-Nav, Hairdryer & Mobile Phone, also met Judy Taylor Holland (Director, Patient Intakes) for a chat, was great to meet all after the last month or so emailing them!
Headed back to apartment after working out sat-nav, we got lost once but made it back in the end!
First meal out we tried McDonalds (original!) Big Mac’s are $2 at the moment! 🙂
I had not heard anything so contacted the centre in Florida directly via email, they have received my details from Oxford late last week. They will be in touch this week for some medical forms that need to be completed prior to visit and then we can start discussions on travel dates and consultation details 🙂
Also received another welcome pack from them today (that’s two now!)
*Update – Provisional date of 22nd September as a departure date!
