Two Surgeries In a Week Later...

... It's a more aggressive cancer than they thought and it has spred. I was actually doing fine until today when I just suddenly got so tired I couldn't deal with the gazzillion and one things that I want to do at the house. So after a nap I wandered off and drank beer. Yesterday was spent running hither and thither from one doc to the next. And they all had to poke the incisions and ask me if I had any pain. I didn't until the upteenth person poked the area that's been cut up twice in a week. Yeesh. Stop poking my boo boos!

Hm. Need Blogger Advice

Granted, I'm a Luddite. But once upon a time when I composed a blog post the bar above had listings that allowed me to grab things like YouTube videos. And now it doesn't. I can add a link, a photo, and a quote. Everything else is gone. Is there a magic button I've lost?

May 30 - Update

For surgery. Doc says 4 weeks before I can seriously stress that side afterwards. I'm working like crazy to get heavy yard work done because I started "renovating" my property last Fall. Instead of the levels of replanting I originally planned more mulch is going down - it's too distracting and I have too many doctor's appointments right now. Not to mention that plants are expensive. The bills have already started coming in and I have a $5000 deductable. Bleah. And I'm trying to get kayaking in. Update - Somebody tried to leave a response in what looks like Arabic. It shows up in email but not here. If it was kind wished I thank you. Otherwise, oh well.

It is cancer. I've already got an appointment with a surgeon. This is going to seriously screw with the first part of kayak season.

Thanks to everyone for their kind words and prayers. And I still don't know. I left a message this morning but still no response. Even if something happened and they didn't get the results you'd think that after a week and a message someone would go "Oh, hey, this patient has been waiting for results on whether or not she has cancer for a week now - I'll let her know we are checking on it." I have volunteer time at church tomorrow. If there is no message by the time I leave at noon I'll go to the doctor's office. And try not to point out that perhaps there is a reason they had to post signs about not verbally abusing the staff.

Hurry Up And Wait

Things are happening fast, even though each pause feels like I'm waiting forever. I may have cancer. Considering the family history, it's more likely than not. Things have moved quickly over the last couple weeks. I should know by Monday whether or not I need to see an oncologist. I'm really pissed that kayaking season could be interfered with. I have things to do. I don't have time for crap like this.

Well. Damn.

Been a helluva week. Gunny gone. Harry Anderson gone. And now Barbara Bush. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know she hated Trump. Don't care. She was 92 years old and still sipping bourbon and when she was First Lady she was lovely.
