So, I don't have diabetes, or even pre-diabetes...........wooohooooo! That's good news.
I see a surgeon on Dec 8 to discuss my gall bladder situation. It's just a consult at this time.
I am finally back on my chemo treatments. I had my 4th today. I'm half way there. I will be on a different chemo drug for treatments 5 to 8. I am curious to see if the side effects will be the same, similar, different etc. Moe Moe is sweet. She came to be with me today. She has to take 3 busses. She's so cute. It was nice having her company. I was able to drive her to Tunney's after chemo as I was going to work anyway. It saved her 1 bus. Not much, but something. I didn't expect any of my sisters or my daughter to come today. Michelle was working. Barb had a meeting with her boss. Patty has been to so many of my appointments at the General. Moe is at the other end of the city and needs to take 3 busses. She said she didn't mind and even likes to take busses. Funny girl.
At my treatment today I asked if I could have my next appt on the 16th. It is currently booked 2 weeks from today on Thursday, Dec 17. I prefer Wednesdays as Michelle is off that day and able to come with me plus we are having our work section Christmas lunch on the 17th and I really don't want to miss it. I mentioned to my oncologist this past Tuesday when I saw her how I preferred Wednesdays and that going today, Thursday, was ok since I hadn't been on chemo for 5 weeks and switching days this one time was fine. I will call her tomorrow to discuss. I really can't understand what difference a day makes. We'll see.
I have done lots of Christmas baking. I'm just one crazy baking queen! I get like that. I don't bake for, well, months and months, and then I simply go nuts (no pun intended) when I put my mind to it. I have baked 11 or 12 different things. My freezer is full and I am out of plastic containers! My sisters and I are having a cookie exchange. I've done my baking, Patty will do her baking, Moe Moe doesn't want to bake (haha) and Barb doesn't have time. I told her she and I could give my desserts together and she can just pay me for half the ingredients. It's all good. We'll get together before Christmas to do the exchange. I am hoping we decide to go out for lunch since I don't like the unpredictability of the weather this time of year so would prefer not to go out in the evening.
My printer died a few weeks ago. Patty and Fred decided to buy me one as a Christmas gift because they know money is real tight and I use my printer quite a bit. It was so generous and kind of them to do this. I ordered one from Staples and it came yesterday.....yay! It has a good review and was on sale to boot! Michelle will set it up for me when she has a chance. Hopefully that's this weekend :-)
Orkin man is coming tomorrow. I still have critters in my wall and ceiling. It's been almost 3 months since I called them. They've been here 5 times already. Why is this so complicated? Why?
I am feeling nauseous. At least not having chemo had advantages.......no side effects. I don't like feeling this way one single bit. C'est la vie.
