Went to the doctor today. More precisely, it was the neurologist to follow up on my ER visit from Friday.
**And, can I just take a moment to say WHEN DID FALL ARRIVE?!? It was actually hoodie weather, but I didn’t realize it until I got there! So disappointed I missed the opportunity to sweatshirt up!!**
Mandatory coffee shot. It was way too early to be awake (9:40 LOL). And, I actually had to wait forever on J … I mean … FOREVER!!
An hour and a half short hours later, we arrived. I am starting to really hate this drive.
Then, once you’re there, you have to walk (or in my case, ride in a wheelchair) like a mile to get to the clinic.
Then you wait for freaking ever to get checked in. p.s. You have to checkout after … in the same place. Ugh!
At least you get (more) coffee, and to be awesome while you wait.
If you’ve hung on this long, now you get the update I’m not happy about: They don’t know what is wrong with me. I could be regressing because I’m doing too much, stress, weird triggers, or it could be another stroke. Doctor said they should have admitted me at ER and done an MRI.
Turns out, I didn’t need (but am paying for) all the tests they DID do in ER.
I am now supposed to have an MRI outpatient, and then see the doctor the same day to make sure everything is okay.
Here’s the part I’m angry about:
They can’t do the MRI until the 13th … At 9:30 at night … When I have chemo again at 10 the next morning. THEN I can’t see the doctor (I have to see a freaking PA) until the 20th.
So, that’s a 15-day process. A LOT can happen in 15 days. Not to mention CHEMO again.
It was scheduling that made my day bad. It’s always scheduling that screws me all up.
Honestly, I think J just felt sorry for me. Totally didn’t have money to go there, but he knew I was pretty upset.
So, that’s the update. I get to chill, with no stress, and no overdoing (seriously, have you met me?!?) until after I see the doctor … On the 20th.
Now I’m going back to sleep. Leave me a message of encouragement. I need it.
