Yesterday’s Appointment

 Yesterday I left an hour early for my doctor’s appointment. The appointment is about twenty miles up the road.

Made three stops. First was to the local credit union. It was out-of-the-way and never busy. I got on the highway and realized my low fuel light had come on.

My car is two years old. We don’t drive it on the weekends anymore.  I was grateful the low fuel light came on right before Brunswick.

Now I usually don’t get gas in Brunswick. Almost missed my exit to get back on the highway.

Finally got to the doctors building. Checked in and had about five minutes waiting for Dave.

A positive of yesterday the nurse didn’t remember me.

This is the same place I had chemo at. Nine treatments at the time seemed to be never-ending. My first oncologist moved to a cancer center on the other side of Cleveland.

She was very good.

I saw the oncologist yesterday. Big waste of time and money.  It was one of those appointments where I could have phone it in.

He scheduled a CT for March. Doesn’t expect to find anything.  I had my CEA levels checked. They are still good.

He said there was still no word about my breast biopsy from last Tuesday. I was hopeful. When I asked him he thought it was I got very odd answers.

 He could have just been like every body else and said he didn’t know. This was probably the third time I had seen him.

I’m glad I looking around before telling Dave I was sorry he took the time to come with me. The doctor had followed me out. He came real close to hearing my comments.

There was a small wait to have my blood drawn. But there was a baby ahead of me. She was born on Halloween. Very very cute.
