Went to my primary yesterday for updates. Caught the goop from the grandkids, 2 were sick when I watched them a week ago. Now grannies got a touch of pneumonia, go figure ! Course of antibiotics and neb at home. Also told him about the lump the specialist were saying was related to the carotid artery. Had an ultra-sound of both sides. Everything is good with both arteries. I asked the tech (who is an actual Dr.-radiologist) about the lump....and he said he wouldn't comment on it, but that the arties were in excellant shape. hmmm....will take the excellant news and ask about that lump later I guess. (my thinking is scar tissue-but showing up almost two yrs. out ?)
I also picked up my walker/chair. At first I was very hestitant to get it. Darned old pride. But it's actually really cool ! Will be able to get some more walking in every day now. I had to laugh at the poor pharmacist....medicare won't touch it for the lung issues. Yeah I guess if you have bad lungs, you aren't suppose to walk. So my Dr. added, falling issues....bam paid for. I asked about O2 for down the road....as these folks are close to home. Was told medicare, and state insurances are fighting this one too. Whatever people !
Did all the paper work for transfer back to St. Cloud cancer center. (over the phone, and faxing) So all, in all I'm in good shape on the home front. Hugs and positives sent out to all ! Katie
