Monday I went to see Dr. Cn, the nephrologist. Once again my blood pressure was low then high when it was read a second time. There is was no real explanation offered. My electrolyte levels are hovering at the bottom of the normal range. He upped the Lisinopril and advised me to take an extra beta blocker if I was ever having symptoms like I was having at the hospital.
Today I went to Dr. P's office to see one of his associates. He froze a few pre-cancerous lesions off my face. Try as I might I can't seem to stop touching it. I have no idea where this subconscious need to touch my face is coming from. I will see Dr. P in July to follow up on the lesions and do a skin check.
This afternoon my ex called to let me know that he was having problems with PE's again. He didn't want me to hear about it from anyone else. Actually all three kids and his foster parents told me sometime last week. Well, I'm very sorry that he's ill and going through this without much family around. I didn't make that choice for him, or rather that long series of choices. Still, I do have to wonder about why he calls me when things suck for him, because he always does. Yes, he's got my number, he knows that I still care. But caring is a moot point for me. It doesn't matter at the end of the day. Things are still the same.
I will see Dr. S, the oncologist tomorrow. I am so not looking forward to repeating the events of the last few months. Nothing like telling a hematologist about the newly diagnosed blood conditions you have. I just don't know how he's going to react. He could just blow it off saying autoimmune diseases stink, or he could want to do a whole check-up to make sure that it's not gastric cancer. I'm just not up for another workup. I am burned out by this already.
On the bright side of the week, tomorrow night I will go over to Mollie's and make a meal to celebrate her birthday. We will be having her childhood favorite, Porcupine Meatballs, Green Beans and Dinner Rolls followed by Brownies. Here's to hoping that Caleb's mom isn't a gourmet cook or something. I think the recipe is from the back of a can label. I will eat sparingly and probably pass on the rolls and the brownies. There are just too many carbs with this meal.
Hope all is well and rosy for you.
