It's been raining all day and I'm a little waterlogged. But it could be worse. If the line of cold air had been a little closer it would all be snow. But we are having lovely temperatures instead of the freezing cold.
First of all I want to answer a lot of you who asked about my blood tests. I have a blood test every three months with my primary to see my cholesterol level, my sugar level, my thyroid hormone, etc. I thought everyone did it. I've done it for years. So it's just routine nothing that I'm sick with or anything. And as to seeing my oncologist today, it's my six month check up. And every time I have blood drawn to check my CA125 and other things like hemoglobin count. Again, just routine not because I am sick. I am very touched that everyone was so concerned but there is no need to be.
Unlike yesterday I barely got in the door before I was taken back to get my blood taken and then was ushered into the exam room. I waited for the doctor less than 5 minutes. I love Dr. Bryansmith. I have been going to him for about 12 years (he and I were trying to figure that out today -- we both said we were getting old). He is the best doctor I have and I feel comfortable telling him everything. And I did. He helped me figure out what other doctors I need to see and in what order so that I am not overwhelmed.
When I got home I made some lemon poppyseed muffins for my tea. I have begun having tea at 4:00 p.m. each day. It is a nice relaxing time. Today Joe got up to join me. He is usually asleep while I do this, so he was surprised and very pleased. We both love lemon muffins.
But now the kitchen is a wreck. I have to get off of here and get the dishes washed and things straightened up. Have a good night everyone!
