We've been in a heat wave here. The humidity has been almost as high as the temp. Higher 90's....tropical, wet and just plain icky !
We go into the U of M in the morning. Rolie's appointments first with endo. And then mine after. I'm not nervous as I want to figure a few things out in my mind. I have some pretty hard hitting questions for my onc's. They're good guys, and I think they'll get it. They see so much in a day's time. They will be doing the scoping, and a needle biopsy in office. I use to have such a phobia of needles.....especially when they're directed at my neck or head.....lol ! Then of coarse labs.
I will be discussing trials with the medical onc.....but was recently told you have to be healthy enough to be accepted. Good lord, seriously ? No, I do understand this. And I agree why would a person put themselves through the unknown if it'll take 'em out.
I am getting the things lined up at home.....moving right along. The lifeline box we received yesterday is really futuristic looking.....and the reach is enough I can be outside and still have range. I think it's hard to make these choices, and yet I know they need to be made the way I want them.....not by a stranger. I'm not gonna lie, it sucks to be in this position....but what do you do right ?
It's sinking in.....even being the stubborn old woman I am. I still want to get up in the early morning....have my coffee and be off to work by 4:30 a.m. I really do miss it.
But I'm still kickin it....and am doing it my way. Never ever accepted anything less in life.....never will ! Many hugs and warm thoughts sent off to you all ! Katie
