This and that

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

This week my new thing was to mentor someone. This i did for a new member for my sorority. She had never been to an on-line chapter meeting to know if she would like to join or not. I invited her to visit my chapter. I told her all about it before she attended so she would know what to expect. Our meeting started on Sunday and goes for the rest of the week.


Yesterday i had an appointment with my chemo oncologist. To my surprise he was happier than he's ever shown before. He actually seemed friendly and joked! His family got a new puppy - a shikie, a shi tzu yorkie mix. He showed us several pictures of him. What a cute little guy. I had never seen one before, but he looked like a guy you'd just want to pick up and cuddle with!! They hadn't named him yet.

We went over my info to update everything. Then we went over the records. He was very happy i was past a two year mark for my breast cancer being gone and on my way to two years for the tonsil cancer being gone. He examined my breast and said they appeared clear to him. And some really good news - I don't have to see him for six more months111 YEAH!! i see his nurse to flush my port or whenever i need a blood draw, but not him. He even told us to call him if we needed anything before the next appointment! That is the very first time he has told me that, too!!
All and all a great checkup, considering it had been rescheduled because we forgot our check book last time for our $25 co-pay!!! Bob always goes in with me in case i forget anything, he'll remember.

While we were in town, Bob and i ran some errands. We each got an iced tea for our ride home, as a treat. We stopped at the American Legion for him to see the commander about their web page that he maintains. We also decided to come home to fix or meal rather than to eat out. Good choice, don't you think? The only treat Bob got for me was a package of animal crackers that should last me the month. I haven't opened them yet. When I do, most likely i'll only eat one or two for the day.

Once more I have managed to lose one of my good gold hoops. It has to be somewhere here in the house, but search as much as we did, we haven't found it. This is the second time i have lost one and it always comes out of my left ear.

Yesterday we barely made it into the 60's. Today was 70, but tomorrow is to be cold again with another possibility of a frost tomorrow night. This is so different than normal NE FL March weather. We are used to having everything green and azaleas blooming by this time of the year! And there is still so much pine pollen in the air because we haven't had much rain to clear it away. It's terrible as it bothers me a lot. I've had several bloody noses during the night and a night of a mouth full of blood because it bothers my sinus so.

So this is what has been going on at evwings and cruzer's house in the past few days. I hope everyone else has done better!! Stay safe and enjoy your days.

Peace Love Cure

    So glad your doctor said you can spend some time away from him - that's good news! Also, hopefully his new puppy will help him have more happy days.

    I'm glad you had such a good day, but I'm curious about why you decided to keep the port so long. (I almost had mine out after the last chemo, than realized that I don't have good drains.)
