Hey! How are you? What’s with the biopsy and all?

@dlowan,
I saw the cardiologist yesterday. My heart is OK.

I see the pre-op people later today.

The biopsy (surgery) is scheduled for May 20.

I still have a bunch of appointments. I'm tired, but what else is new?

Keep your chin up, because many of us a2kers are here for moral support.

@Roberta,
Long time to wait for your biopsy. That must be hard.

Has dog visiting been regular? Please say it has?

@dlowan,
I would prefer more time. All the schlepping back and forth is exhausting, and I don't want to have surgery when I'm exhausted.

Yesterday I was at the hospital for five and a half hours; today only two and a half.

Winston and Joe have been visiting weekly. The comfort of the dog continues to amaze me. And he loves me. Plus Joe is good company, so I'm not as alone as I usually am.

In addition to four appointments next week, I now have a toothache. When do I go to the dentist?

I called and asked that the surgery be delayed so that I could have some time to take care of things, rest, and recover.

Above, I said, "Enough is enough." I'm now amending that to say, "Enough is enough is enough."

Haven't been around much, Boida, but just know that I do think of you and your great strength!

@Roberta,
Yikes. Toothache is awful. When DO you get to see the dentist? Can you sleep at present?

@dlowan,
I went to a dental clinic on Saturday. My situation is too complicated for them to handle. They told me to go to the hospital. It wasn't open on the weekend. I had planned to go Monday morning, but my stomach was very upset. I'm juggling appointments. I plan to go Tuesday morning. I don't have an appointment. Theoretically they take walk-in patients from 8-10.

Sleeping a bit. Eating a bit.

@Roberta,
So, it’s Thursday here and I’m hoping that means you made it to the clinic and the bloody tooth is fixed or no longer in situ

Please
Roberta

@dlowan,
I saw the dentist today (Friday). A tooth is out, but it's not the one that was bothering me. It's the one next to the offending tooth. It was badly infected.

There's more to come tooth-wise. I don't know how this will affect the surgery plans. Right now, I'm gonna try to rest.

@Roberta,
Is the tooth originally hurting you feeling any better after this? Do you have a schedule for all this tooth stuff?

Bloody teeth! I’m trying to cling onto my dental cover at least.

Rest good! I hope you have a dog visit soon.

@dlowan,
The original tooth still bothers me, but not much. I'm healing. Winston has an upset stomach and can't come visit me. I don't know if I'm up for a visit now.

I have a stress test on Wed. 4-6 hours of what I expect will be unpleasantness with radiation stuff.

Friday I see the dentist again.

I'm getting a lot of rest, but don't feel rested. Sigh.

@Roberta,
Stab in the dark, but insufficient water and magnesium negatively affect my sleep...

I bought magnesium spray and when I ran out, I’d mix water and table salt and apply it to the irritating area (mostly feet and shins) and it worked for me-and I could sleep.

Vibing you peaceful rest. Lavender essential oils on pillow?🙂❤️

@dlowan,
My stomach was greatly upset by the new antibiotic. I couldn't go out. I missed the stress test and the return visit to the dentist. The stress test is rescheduled. I'm worried that the horrid bacterial infection is rearing its ugly head. I don't know yet.

I don't feel much like communicating. Sorry about the silence. I'll try to do better.

@Roberta,
So sorry to hear this.

Are you going to hospital? Maybe all the tests could be done if you were an inpatient? You’ll need to see the specialist for the horrible bug will you not?

No wonder you don’t feel like communicating much!

Hoping you'll be on the mend and feeling better soon. Get back to us when you're up for it.

@dlowan,
I can't just check myself into a hospital because it would be more convenient, and at this point, I have only one test left.

If I think the bug is back, I'll have to go to the ER. I can't call a specialist at the hospital. It's a public hospital, and I don't have a specific doctor.
