Retro Post

Yesterday was a frustrating trip to see the doctor. Who in the world made doctors think they are God?? Maybe because they hold your life in their hands?

Jim and I wanted some answers to questions. Mostly about his prognosis and some other things. Our questions were not answered we were just given some medical mumble jumble. When we came home yesterday evening we were both in a state of depression. I took an anti-anxiety pill which didn't help at all. Jim just wandered around.

On the plus side his blood count was good. We go back to see this doctor again this afternoon to get results of the chemistry part of the blood test. Whatever the devil that means.

In among all of the medical jumble I think we understood that if that count is ok too then there will probably be more chemo this week.

I went out and tackled the garden this morning. Weeds and all. I picked tomatoes and lima beans. Next week I am going to start pulling up everything as it is all dying because of lack of rain.

Hoping to get by to visit everyone this evening. I will post an update here this evening as to whether we go in the hospital tomorrow or not.

***We found out at the doctor today that Jim's creatin level is elevated and he is low on sodium. He see's a kidney specialist on Thursday.
