Another Doctor's Visit =Another Outing

Just back from my check-up with Dr. McCourt down at L&M. She is pleased with how I'm healing, reassured me that being exhausted is a GOOD thing, it means I'm healing and she says I can start chemo in two weeks.

She also cleared me to go to Maine next week...YAY! But, I'm not cleared to drive until six weeks after surgery...so I have a few more weeks to go. I was hoping she'd say I was okay to drive now. Not that I want to drive all over the place, but it would be nice to be able to make a hair appt and not have to worry about if it fits Sandy's schedule.

I had such trouble sleeping last night...my usual "night before the appt insomnia"...I didn't dare look at the clock. Finally I sent Sandy a text message, we texted back and forth for a bit and then I was able to go to sleep. Oh, maybe the fact that I had two huge bouts of diarrhea also had something to do with me being able to go to sleep. I was so uncomfortable prior to this "release." I think it helped to "relieve" myself of this burden. I was then free to travel to dreamland.

I have two doggies sleeping with me as I doze in the recliner: Rocky on my lap and Bubbles beside me. They are my two snuggle bunnies who comfort me when I'm having problems sleeping and who are always willing to nap with me. It is so nice.

Oh, of course, as soon as I type this last paragraph, Rocky has to jump up to go bark at some unknown entity in the front yard....something that has come to kill us I'm sure!

Think I'll get myself a snack and take a nap.

Just because I can and the doctor says I should.

Hurray! Glad to hear your healing nicely. Jim goes for his PET scan early tomorrow, fingers crossed. Thanks for the note Ann, great to have supporters fighting the "Dragon"!

Good to you are healing up well.

A nap sounds good to me too but I haven't even been up a whole hour! How will I ever get anything done today!!! LOL

Do you think if I trade ya half of my constipation for half of your diarrhea we could both be regular? Oh that it were that simple!
