Thursday, I dragged my ass all the way to Philly to talk to the radiation ppl up at CHOP- Children’s Hospital of Pennsylvania. Moreover, the teaching hospital of UPenn.
I’m going up for treatment beginning the 1st of December, and if the schedule holds up, then I can return the third week of January. Unfortunately, I have to be there 5 days a week, for only an hour a day. We’re just now grasping how inconvenient and expensive this shit is.
So, the hotels around immediate campus accommodate patients by lowering rates for 30+ day stays. Not looking forward to it, but my teachers seem like they’re gonna help me out with my work (I have to sign up for a home bound program, and get my work through email or the literal mail). And Kathleen, God love her, is coming to stay with my sister for six weeks.
And I feel like a douchebag doing this, but we’re actually going broke doing this. My dad isn’t doing anything to help. So we set up a GoFundMe account to try and help with bills, etc. (my mom’s on unpaid FMLA). Any help would be so wonderful.
