Well today was my internist visit; she gets all the reports from PET/CT , etc , that my onco and rad docs get. Good news thyroid still good -check, good cholesterol 147 - check , bad cholesterol 60 - check, BP 116/84 - check , blood sugar 110 - check..she is thrilled , even with the weight loss. Then we discuss the gardasil injections that she and rad doc think I should have ; 3 shots , had the first one today , 2nd shot 2 months out, 3rd shot 6 months from that, $250 per shot , hopefully my ins will pay something depends on how she codes it... she also wants me to have a colonoscopy (sp) ;-( and my yearly mamo by the time all this is done it will be December ..yikes.. Oh she also gave me my flu shot...what a day..this gettin healthy is hard work. So those of you who haven't had any of the above get ready, even though it was a long day I'm blessed to have this team of doctors looking out for me,

Linda

    A veritable picture of good health!
    You left out the 'shingles' and 'whooping cough' innoculations. I'm thinking I'll go ahead and get those this year.
