For the record, oncologists on two coasts were absolutely confident that Nancy had leukemia. The clinic doctors saw differently. In our earliest conversations, Ray told us that Tom suspected it was “something else.” On Nancy’s first day in the ICU, a nephrologist (now her nephrologist) correctly isolated a rare and deadly vasculitis as the culprit, but not before three major organs failed. The vasculitis attacked her heart, her lungs and her kidneys, but she was being attended by the necessary specialists. And. it was all happening on a right-now basis. Today her heart and lungs are back, performing as desired. Nancy has finally been accepted into Tampa General’s kidney transplant program.
