Gloria is driving, she feels my attention isn't what it should be. Maybe she's right... Priorities set this morning, prayers first for a good day. Second, a cup of coffee without sweetener and cream... ugh! That will cut my consumption down quickly!
Arrived at the doctor's office ready for a report from John Hopkins. Blood pressure was a little high again 178/101, think it was being anxious that caused that bump. The opinion of my last biopsy had not arrived, and my doctor said that he thinks my mass outside the kidney is Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma. But... that is why we are waiting for the third opinion to know for sure what we are dealing with.

After my appointment with the doctor, went to the hospital for pre-registration. While there, found that I was to do labs, EKG, chest x-ray, pre-op nurse consult, etc. It's a good thing my sister and I decided to stop running errands and go to the hospital before it got too late. Not getting to the hospital for the tests today could have messed up my biopsy date.
After running errands, it was getting dark outside. Both Gloria (sister) and I don't deal with night driving really well. We do okay, just not our favorite. Anyway, a little slower coming back tonight and Allen was anxiously waiting for us. No, that's not correct, he was anxiously awaiting the arrival of his steak and cheese sandwich. And we thought the calls to us on the road were of concern for us, not relief for his hunger pains.
No over the counter pain medications these past three weeks, and I am feeling aches and pains. Not bad, just there and tired. As a result, guess I won't be driving back to Tri Cities tomorrow for my grandson's football game. I feel bad about that, and I will miss being there.
