I have really enjoyed watching my grandson wrestle. It reminds me of when his father wrestled and I enjoyed that too. The season, middle school, started and stopped so soon... can't wait until next year.
This week I have had to make a decision on which doctor appointments to make, or keep. Since my oncologist wants to see me more often, the other appointments have to go. I had cancelled an appointment with him this week. There were no issues, money was short. So I called in "before" and told them I would not be able to keep my appointment. Then I asked if they could go ahead and schedule my CT scan for this coming week, and I would come in for a follow-up afterwards. The CT scan will be on my kidney and renal artery. (It is hoped that the chemo has reduced the size of mass.) No, that would not work. I have to come in to see him before he will order the CT. I don't understand as we have discussed this scan several times. So, I go in, no issues to discuss... so that he can order the CT? That is going to cost me close to $100.00 out of pocket just to get the CT ordered. Frustration! Doctors do not understand that co-pays, gas to and from the appointment, and 20% all add up. On a limited income, I have had to make decisions. Today I was honest with the nutritian center. I told them that my income only stretched so far, and my oncologist appointments were going to be more often, so I would have to reschedule for another time. So, now what do I tell my primary physician who is monitoring my glucose, blood pressure, etc.?
Guess I will be having a yard sale soon. I shouldn't complain, as my situation is better than some, and for that I really am greatful.
The bruises on my throat from the thyroid biopsy are almost gone. I am still saying "thank you" for the good report.
Is my chemo brain still an issue? A great big YES. It is frustrating for me to know that I have done something before, yet cannot figure out how to currently do it. I am writing myself notes, and then can't figure out the notes later. Now isn't that fun? I understand that this condition will be better once I am thru treatment. I can't wait!
