When I get back, during the first part of September, I will have another CT scan. Only this time the doctor wants to do from neck to hips. Also, there will be an ultrasound on the mass that is attached to my thyroid.
The last ultrasound and invasive biopsy showed no cancer. I am praying for the same results. Even if it is not cancerous, the size may determine whether or not there will be surgery to remove the bulk. Hopefully, this mass has not grown and I can go a while before another invasive procedure.
I have to tell you I have found the coolest medical identification necklace.
Good news... I have been accepted to move into the apartments I wanted. I have to wait until my birthday to find out adjusted rent amount. I will call from California on my birthday, and hopfully there will be an opening in September. I have gone to the apartments and found the locations in the building I would like, but... guess I will have to wait and see. This apartment complex is for seniors (62 and older). I have had acquaintances scrunch their face and ask me if it is really what I want to do. I am looking at the glass half full here. It is a small apartment, bedroom, livingroom, kitchen, bathroom. I will put my ingenious space saving ideas to work here. There will be an adjusted rent, so that I can eat, buy medicine and pay rent. There will be no loud parties above, beside or behind my apartment. There will be no families with small children. I never minded the children, and their noises. Those are to be expected! What I minded was the lazy parents who screamed at their kids, rather than going to them and showing and telling them what they were doing wrong and showing them the right way. The parents drove me nuts, shouting... then catching the children and wrenching one arm to haul them away. I cannot do that again. Besides, this apartment is walking distance to the hospital, both doctors, a pharmacy, grocery store, fast food restaurant, several mom and pop restaurants, coffee shop, park, city swimming pool, post office, etc. I don't want to move again... so this will be perfect for me. Also, just think.. I won't be making the long trip to my medical appointments in the heat of the summer or the cold/ice/snow during the winter.

Moving day is going to be interesting. "If" my son or daughte-in-law have the day off of work... "if" my friend Junior has the day off work... "if" my daughter can come up from California... if, if, and if. I did find that there is a group in the area called "Teen Challenge" who hire out to help with odd jobs as a fund raiser. I will check on that. As far as my sister (broken rib not healed well), brother-in-law still mending from his stroke/cancer, friends who have health issues or are older than I... I guess I will keep lookin.
I have been slow in posting these past months, but should get better when I move. The computer works so very slow here in Royal City, as well as my health and lack of patience.
I am using all of that as an excuse, and hope to not have those excuses soon.
