But, it was a long, long day for Betsey. We did not get home until after 7p.m. - almost nine hours. A lot of that was just waiting. Betsey, fortunately, did not have to be sitting in a wheelchair. For us, it was sitting in waiting rooms, first at the Outpatient Imaging Center, and then later at the Cancer Center while Betsey had some blood work done and had an appointment with her oncologist, Dr. Domek. Rob stayed with Betsey. We spent some time with her in a "holding area," and again in "Procedure Room #2," but mostly we were in waiting lounges. We did get a bit to eat at the hospital cafe, including a lemon popsicle for Ellen:

Meanwhile, Gertie had to be in her cage all day while we were gone. We hoped it didn't thunder at the house, because Gertie hates thunder. She was very glad to get outside when we got home.
