Probably all big cities in the United States make claims like this, but Baltimore is special because Johns Hopkins (JH) Hospital is here. Phil is getting excellent out-patient care at the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at JH. We leave the house every day at 7 AM and arrive at JH about 45 minutes later. We have time for at least an hour's walk before his appointment with "Synergy," his machine. We walk outside in good weather. If it's raining, we walk the second-floor loop at the hospital, enjoying the art work.
His date with "Synergy" lasts about 10 minutes. Once a week, he sees his oncologist, Dr. Tran, a good guy if ever there was one. Usually we stop for lunch on the way home. We're back by 1 PM at the latest. It's a bit of a grind, but I am not complaining. I am so glad we live near Hopkins.
