Jerry and I were on our way to Anderson by 6:00 this morning. First appointment 7:00 am. I had an appointment schedule that had kept us going until 3:30 in the afternoon…blood work, chest x-rays, interviews, medical history (over and over again, each department focusing on a different quirk of this aging body. Everyone was upbeat. Everyone was as helpful as they could possibly be.
Best news if the day: Six months of serious treatment and surgery and then I can go back to my real life.
Second best news of the day: If my white blood count is good (and they’ll be keeping track) and if the Littles in Flower Mound stay healthy, I can see them every weekend we want to make the five hour trip. The doctor said I’ll probably see them more in the next few months than I ever did. (Second time I cried in the past few days).
So things are good. They still haven’t staged the cancer. Another endoscopy and biopsy tomorrow along with and endoscopic ultrasound. If they don’t come up with more tests for tomorrow afternoon or Friday, we’ll head out after that to go see the kids for the weekend.
Other fun stuff: loved Anne and Clark’s hot tub last night, got up early to do some yoga and meditation this morning, went to the Apple Store to pick up our new MacBook Pro, went out to a great seafood restaurant tonight with Anne and Clark and Jill (niece) stopped by after dinner to gab. So much going so right. I am one very lucky woman.
Thanks for the good thoughts, healing energy, prayers and jokes. Thanks for carrying me through this. Love to all…
