Week3, day 1: Clinic day

Week 3 means no chemo but lots of appointments. I am so grateful to the awesome booking clerks for stacking appointments rather than dragging hem across the week! Two appointments today (pharmacy and radiology) and one tomorrow (oncologist). The care and organization and keep-on-top-of-it of this BC Cancer Agency is amazing. Really. Don't you find it incredible that the pharmacist meets with you to discuss all meds, any supplements, any protein shake you might be taking to make sure nothing interacts to hurt you? That level of care, thought, planning done on my behalf sure takes a great deal of thinking or "trying to figure this out" off my shoulders and out of my head. I appreciate that a lot! And every doctor, nurse, tech all reads your file and each others' notes each time before you meet. So everyone is working from the same plan and page. Again, what a great deal of thinking out of my mind and onto these trained professionals. I like it. A lot. Teamwork. Nice! Extra eyes. Nice. Great care: such a blessing right here in my own town.

Last night was some harsh rib pain for this chickie. When they moved my rib out of the way to remove my kidney, something chiropractor-required happened... unfortunately, due to the cancer in my shoulder bone, chiro isn't a good idea right now. Ended up sleeping sitting up and leaned over a stack of pillows. Sleepy girl today for sure. Thankful for a kind husband, meds, pillows to stack, nap time!


  1. Sending hugs your way today. Hope you get some rest after your appointment. Love you,

  2. Glad to hear the "thinking" is being competently carried by others ... you need/deserve the break from carrying it all on your own. BLESSINGS! And BIG PRAYERS sent your way, every day.
