Besides TeleCare today, I have three days of medical tests: Wednesday - mammogram and bone density scan; Thursday - blood work and cat scan of lungs for a small nodule my oncologist is following; and Friday - the proverbial INR/PT finger prick with brief physician appointment. Then a week from today (next Monday) I see the oncologist for results of blood work and cat scan and another physician appointment for allergy shot.
Thank goodness I have a shopping trip to the "big city" of Springfield, MO next week. I love to leave the mountains, only for awhile, go to where I can find items that are unavailable nearby smaller communities.
Anyone who has had cancer knows these follow-ups are approached with apprehension, even a 13 year kidney cancer survivor. I am feeling so great since dropping 21 lbs. and participating in a modest exercise program, but I've had some irregular blood work.
I'm lecturing myself into a positive attitude.... and filling my empty time with busy work and exercise.
Several on my blog log are battling similar problems, some worst than others. Maybe this blogging is some kind of therapy!
I seek some comfort in verses from my religious background.
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. [Matthew 6:34]
