two appointments

Mom is currently receiving her radiotherapy; her appointment was rescheduled from the usual 2PM to 11:20AM because she has a 3PM appointment with her neurosurgeon, Dr. Leiphart, at the George Washington Medical Center.

I have no idea what's left to discuss. The question of whether to put Mom's bone flap back in seems of dubious relevance, given what we now know.

Then again, Dad made the point that Mom would feel better, knowing that her head was whole. I've seen Mom staring at her reflection and shaking her head in sadness or disgust. She still retains enough sense of self to feel some pride about how she looks. Dad may have a point: Mom might feel better about herself if her skull were intact.

But would such surgery be worth the effort? I don't know. I don't know anything these days.
