Well the last couple of days I have been busy getting a bunch of appointments set. Although the radiologist that I saw on Tuesday said I could do activities, I don’t think she realizes the amount of activity I am used to doing. With a broken piece of plastic in my neck, I am not willing to take crazy chances. I have a couple of adult dance group performances in the next few days and I will do those, but am not going to be doing the big, fast, and furious dancefit and group fight classes until I have healed from surgery, so at the beginning of the new year, I think. Pushing snow off the driveway was my exercise today. I would have taken Tallinn for a walk but it was SLICK in my neighborhood today and pretty windy and cold. Tomorrow afternoon I have an appointment with an oncology nurse practitioner, who will make sure I am healthy enough for the surgery. No one has listened to my heart or lungs for over 2 years thanks to COVID and my local doctor, who prefers to just do a zoom call or a phone call every 4 months. As long as nothing remarkable shows up during that physical, I will be first case next Thursday morning, Dec 22nd. My local doctor does not feel that I need another port at this point, so they will just be removing it. It should be an easy enough procedure, but they did warn me that because I have had this port for 3 years, that there may be a lot of scar tissue adhered to the port, so just to be aware of that. I should be home by noon that day to recover and lounge around the day. Tim will arrive late the next night, so I should be feeling a bit better by then. I will be sore over Christmas, but we will be having a quiet, at home affair, which will do just fine. I also got my CT scans set up for January 30th…then my zoom appointment with my Mayo Clinic sarcoma specialist to follow in early February. So I am set for now! Thanks for all of your prayers !
