Just to bring everyone up to speed:
Monday, October 18th: First visit with Dr. Benjamin Jewell. Mom had an irritation and soreness in her throat that had been bothering her for a few weeks. Dr. Jewell felt that she should see an Ear, Nose and Throat doctor and was referred to Dr. Healey’s office. Dr. Healey has a busy office and has just recently added a new ENT to her clinic, Dr. Joyce Colton House.
Wednesday, October 27th: Mom had her first visit with Dr. Joyce Colton, who performed a scope. At this first visit she saw enough inflammation and recommended a CT Scan.
Friday, October 29th: CT Scan. From this scan and the scope on October 27th, Dr. Colton feels that Mom most likely has a cancerous mass in the area of her vocal chords.
Tuesday, November 9th : Scheduled biopsy for a more definitive diagnosis.
More updates as soon as I get them.
