Meeting the Hi-Risk OB/GYN

On Wednesday, April 9th, Trisha, Oak and Cerena went to meet with the Hi-Risk OB/GYN, Dr. Druzin at Lucile Packard. After some administrative complications, we finally met with the doctor. Dr. Druzin did not have the specifics of Trisha's situation, so Oak and Trisha tried to bring him up to speed as quickly as possible. He gave us a general overview of what considerations Trisha should make for the baby when considering treatment. Dr. Druzin's general message was that Trisha should get the treatment she needs irrespective of being pregnant - basically that her well-being is the most important thing. He said that after she met with the Surgeon and the Oncologist and received their recommendation for treatment, he would weigh in on the situation.

Trisha, its been a long time since we have seen each other but I was a friend of your brothers growing up via other friends in common. I was asked by a friend of your husbands to give Oak a call for moral support since I myself am currently the spouse of a Breast Cancer patient, my wife Jennifer Fitzsimons.
I just want you and Oak to know that this will quite possibly be the craziest, whirlwind of an issue that will ever happen in your marriage, as it has been ours thus far but there is truly strength you havent tapped yet that will get you pass this hurdle.
Together the journey will make your love for each other and your family invincible.
We are only a few blocks away so if you need a place to go or someone to talk to who's dealing daily with the same ordeal we are here 24-7. Stay strong because you know thats how we roll in the RWC!!
Good luck today. Jason
