Why is it that I can put my BC behind me, until it rolls around for the check up time? Tomorrow is mammogram, blood work, and Med Onc. as well as Rad Onc appointments. Yes, I know it is a "routine" 6 month check up and after nearly 6 years, you'd think I would just take it for granted, but I don't believe that is ever going to be the case.
Asking for your prayers that everything will be fine, and that they will again be trying to talk me into the complete mastectomy and reconstructive surgery, instead of saying we need to put it off because of other problems.
I've been having some eye problems for a couple of weeks. My left eye vision has not been right. Sometimes it is, sometimes very fuzzy and feeling like there is something else going on. Knowing I had these appointments, I have just waited.
Also would like to ask for prayers for my brother. He has been having back problems and is a veteran, so goes to VA Dr. Well after about 4 months, they did an MRI and found what they are saying is a cyst or tumor, and have suddenly deemed it "Priority", which means get him to a specialist - no matter how far away they have to send him. He lives in ND and has been sent to Omaha, Nebraska to a neurosurgeon. Found out last Thursday that he has to be there tomorrow, so flew down today, not knowing what they will do or anything. Typical VA. He and his wife care for her invalid mother, so his wife was not able to accompany him, so my mom who is 84 went with him. She is in very good health, but I also worry about her under these circumstances. If they hospitalize him, she had no idea when they left, where she would be staying. Always something it seems. So, asking for prayers for good reports for him and save keeping for both of them.
Thanks for everything. Sorry about the length.
Love you all,
