actually, i never left. so much has been going on, and i'm anxious to catch you all up on stuff.
first of all, i put a counter on my blog this month, and am astounded at how many hits i'm getting. i really thought few people read it, so i am humbled and honored by each and every one of you who stops by to see what mutt and i are up to. thank-you. there is alot more to come. soon.
i had a recent doctor visit, and all my follow-up labs and ultrasounds are good.....cancer free, if not "cured", and determined to stay that way.....i am being compliant with my med dosage, and will continue to do so. i don't have a follow up visit for one whole year :-) so that is good! i will deal with the discomforts of the meds....that ends up being alot less drama in the long run.
so, now, a story. in january, right before i left for texas, i had an appointment with my opthamologist, who was concerned with a little glitch in my exam. he scheduled me for an appointment with a specialist, and said he wanted some baseline testing done. my vision had been a little wonky, but i thought i needed new glasses. i don't. he felt that this "wonky" was a side effect of the meds, and was dose related. so he made me an appointment with this doctor for the following month, and sent me on my way. that left me with a big decision....san antonio? or doctor appointment? the slabs? or.....
so of course, i hit the road the next day. called the specialist from the slabs and said i'd have to reschedule. are you suprised?
so my vision is rough right now ......i can't do more than a few minutes on the computer or a few pages in a book before i can't read anything. this is apparently something this new doc can fix, so i gotta be patient.
so please be patient with me! i have lots to yak about. my internet presence has been real minimal everywhere, and do virtually nothing by email or text message anymore. anything i do will be here, at night when i can "sleep it off" afterwards.
just as a little teaser, though, the title of my next blog is gonna be "to poo, or not to poo?" you'll love it!
