Killed 3 birds with one stone today. I first had to go to the hospital for a
blood test because my Potassium is dangerously low.
Then I had to go to the Oncology clinic for a teaching session.
Watched 2 films that were really stupid......in the first scenes before they
started, they announced that the people in it that were patients, were really
Actors. From that point, I judged their acting abilities and not the shit that
was falling out of their mouths...Come on, give me someone to listen to
the truth, someone who has lived this shitty cancer, some one who has
survived it. Someone who can tell me how often they puked a day and if
their diarrhea has them anemic yet. Someone who can tell me how bad
these aches and pains and numb fingers and toes are. NOT someone
ACTING like they have cancer. When that was over, the nurse came
in and told us (hubby and daughter came with me) a million things &
thank God she gave me hand outs on paper about it cause I would never
ever remember all that stuff. After that the 3 of us went to lunch, very
very nice as we just never get to do that. Then finally, I had an appointment
to talk with the surgeon who will be implanting my catheter (a little thing
that is about the size of a marble with one line going up and the other end
in a vein to my heart. They do this so that they do not have to start an IV
in my arm every time I have a treatment. They can also take blood through
it for blood tests. This thing will be under the skin right below my collar
bone. Surgeon says there will be about a 2 inch scar where they put it in.
If it gets clogged we may have to do it all over again.
Drove right by a wig store today!!! Lolol I don't know if I'll go with the
Marilyn Monroe look, or Cher, or who just yet. I have been trying forever
to get my hair to a beautiful soft silver/white. They can't make your hair
white in the salon ya know. That's the only color they can't do. You must
grow it naturally. So, now I am on hold until Monday and after that all
hell is gonna break loose.....
