The Final Outcome

On WED Jesse and I went to see his oncologist to see when we could start his treatments. The Dr. told Jesse that he wanted him to go to the place right next door for his radiation. Well once the Dr. left to call over there he found out that his ins wouldnt cover Jesse over at the place (RIGHT NEXT DOOR). The girls at the Dr. office quickly called the ins. company to get an override otherwise they wanted him to travel to Fresno (and that is about 45 min away from our house) everyday for treatment. Not only would that be hard for him, but hard for me who would take him there. He has to go everyday for about 10 weeks. Also, he wants to work as long as possible and if we go to fresno he wouldnt be able to. So Thursday comes and we get a call from the Dr. office and they tell him that the Ins. company denied his claim and he MUST go to Fresno. Jesse did all he could by calling the ins and all they did was give him the run around. He called the Dr. office this morning to find out the name of the Dr. he needs to see in fresno and the nurse gave him GREAT news! THE DR. PUT UP A FIGHT AND NOW JESSE DOES NOT HAVE TO TRAVEL THAT FAR HE CAN DO IT WHERE HE WAS SUPPOSED TO IN THE FIRST PLACE! The Dr. he goes to see now is only about 20 min away. He also found out his treatment plan :
Week 1- 96 hours in hospital while getting chemo
Week 2-4 radiation treatment mon thru fri
Week 5- 96 hours in hospital while getting chemo
Week 6-9 Radiation treament mon thur fri
After all that treament he is going back to see if the tumer is totally gone or not if it is still there they will do surgery and then 2 more weeks of treatment.

I am so greatful for those girls in that office for working so hard to help Jesse out. I know how stressed he was about how we would make it work going that far everyday seeing as his mom is getting rides to her treatment every day as well. I know that we will find a way for everything to work, not sure how but I know we will

Thank you all for all your prayers!

Yea! I'm so glad that the doctor's office worked so hard to make that happen for you guys. This all sounds stressful enough without the additional travel to and from Fresno. I'm glad that Jesse will be able to get his treatments close to home. That sounds like a grueling chemo/radiation schedule though. We will definitely be keeping you two in our prayers.
