What About Bob?, Part Quatro

In our last episode…

My friend Bob (of the many friends named such) – my former P.I. boss and gun store boss – was losing weight and on a feeding tube due to the inability to eat due to esophageal cancer (!)

And he (and we) were awaiting approval from on-high (his health care insurance) to begin chemotherapy and radiation for the throat cancer.

And the insurance company was balking at beginning treatment, as he had yet to gain any weight (or to save themselves money – you decide!)

And now…

I heard from him yesterday, as I reached out to him for the Thanksgiving weekend.  He has been receiving ‘treatments’ going on three months, with the last one scheduled for this coming week.

THEN, we will see the prognosis…

He says he is very tired and is maintaining (mostly) a good attitude.

Please keep a good thought, and pray for him (if that’s what you do).

  2. I’m so sorry to hear that. That’s what my brother fought, but he waited too long to get any treatment (lost his job, no insurance, couldn’t get in to the VA and couldn’t sign up for Obamacare because his State’s exchange was inop – yeah – don’t get me started there). Hope Bob is getting good and prompt care now.

    • First, many apologies! This comment found it’s way into the spam file! I don’t check it very often. 😦
      Well, it hasn’t been very prompt, but I just received word last week he had completed chemo/rad for a five week course. No word on his prognosis, as of yet.
      I keep praying for him and texting – he doesn’t answer the phone, much.
      We’ll see…
