I saw my cardiologist this morning - she is the best doctor, in my memory, that I have ever had; in addition, she knows how to "handle" me and convince me when I get balky!
I have an upcoming appoint with a hematologist/oncologist the day after Christmas, and have been thinking about cancelling it. The cardiologist looked at all my medical records and explained things to me that my regular doctor or the endocrinologist didn't explain. The Cardio definitely wants me to keep the appointment as she says I have a problem with blood marrow that isn't too bad yet, but could turn into cancer if left untreated. She said it's a matter of taking a pill for it if I start it soon. She also said it is very possible that symptoms I thought were thyroid (total fatigue) could be due to the bone marrow problem.
Fortunately my daughter was with me and will remember details I often forget. I also signed papers that she can give or receive all information on my behalf. I have always remembered a column written by the late Erma Bombeck, entitled "When does the child become the parent, and the parent become the child."
I was so hungry after I got home I fixed myself a ham & chicken sandwich. It was so good I then fixed a second one. That's 4 slices of bread, plus 2 slices from the egg sandwich I had for breakfast. Not the best thing I could be stuffing myself with. I have to see the chiropractor this afternoon, and will be waddling into his office!
What a start to my week. I hope all readers have a great week ahead!
