All Is Well

After blood work, a chest x-ray, and an echo, everything came back F-I-N-E fine. Thank you thank you thank you lord! I had an interesting experience with the echo which scared me and I thought for sure something was wrong. But it wasn't, my heart still loves me. But after my appointment with my oncologist (have I mentioned how much we love him?) he decided to have one more blood test done to test my hormones. We don't have those results yet, but it's not a big deal really.

Sigh. It's hard to use so much of my energy on these cancer checks. You brain wanders too much, you start thinking, "Ok, what if....then I will have to......" thoughts, which are just a waste of time because it is what it is what it is, nothing else. On the brighter side, I was able to see some of my staff buddies from Mayo, which is ALWAYS nice. I enjoy chatting with them, and miss that on a regular basis. And I also felt better when Dion complained about the crazy elevator people who don't let you off before plowing their way through, which is something that I may have complained about a few times.

I did talk to my doctor about my weight gain and he said sadly that it is most likely from the study I am in, chemically induced menopause. That sucks. I am in it for another 3 years. I will have to figure things out.

Ok, on to other things. Some funny things that made me laugh....
  • Nadia was eating fried chicken and peeling the crunchy skin. She said she was taking the paper off.
  • There are way too many naked men statues at Mayo, one of them watched us eat breakfast.
  • My doctor said to me today, 'Well, some people are just weird" to which Dion was behind me nodding. That wasn't too funny....

Hmm. I guess that is all of the funny things I can think of right now. Sad. I think I am just really tired. After we got back into town I went to the YMCA for my massage appointment, which was wonderful. I smell like a candy cane right now because of the oil she used. Awesome. What a perfect way to end my stressful day. Now, it's time to chill on the couch with the girls. Later!

Praise the Lord Sue! I know you are so very relieved. I go for my first main check-up in December and I'm already nervous about it!
