and you know...while I love my clinic, I think clinics deal with so much heartbreak on a daily basis that they get a bit immune to it and it is almost down played. Kinda like, ok, what is next. I'm pretty strong and resilient, but gosh it was nice to have someone just say, I'm sorry, are you ok? And going through Cancer treatment....you would think they would be better but I have another friend who had similar compaints about her Dr. being so dire like yours. She stuck with him because he had a great rep and was a great surgeon and she is now cancer free....but why not be supportive? Very sad. Hope you are doing well!
