Today I had my monthly oncologist's appointment, and also my chemo. It was about a half hour wait in the waiting room before I saw the doctor. He said my lab work looks good, but it's time to have another bone scan. I don't have the appointment for that set yet, but it will be sometime before I see him next month. Then I was sent to my room for the chemo. They clinic is still short one chemo nurse so I waited awhile before she came in to draw my blood. Then it was a long wait, about an hour, for the lab to get my CBC results back to the nurse. My white blood count was too low, so I could not have chemo today. We will try again next week. So basically, I sat around at the clinic for 2 hours just to talk the doctor for a few minutes and get blood drawn. I'm usually ok with waiting, I'm use to it, but today it was aggravating to wait that long just to find out I couldn't have the chemo.
My best friend took me to Smart Style to get my hair cut. I went there instead of my usual salon because I didn't have to make an appointment. With my health issues and not knowing how I am going to feel one day to the next, I didn't want to make an appointment and then have to change it if it ended up being a bad day for me. I like my new haircut. My hair is straight and fine, and when it gets too long I can't do much of anything with it. This cut has some layers in it to give it some volume, and sideswept bangs. It's actually thicker looking than it appears in the picture.
After that, she took me to Lowes where I got a couple of hanging baskets for my porch.
It's been a long day, but I am glad I got my long overdue haircut today; that makes me feel a lot better about myself, and I am happy with my flowers too.
