The first darn it is because 2 of our 3 vehicles are in for repairs. Not only an inconvenience, but hard on the pocketbook. I had a 9:00 appointment with Dr. Porter today. I had to hurry home so I could transport Kylie to her new job at 10:00. At 10:45 I had an appointment with Dr. Hoberman which leads me to the 2nd Darn It!
I still have the left JP drain. For as anxious as I am to get it out, Dr. Hoberman assured me that if it comes out too early, they have to remove the fluid with a needle, and that doesn't sound too pleasant either. She went over the mastectomy pathology report with me. To my surprise, there was a "small knot" in the tissue of the left breast. A biopsy was done and it was found to be benign. This is all great news, but I can't help but remember that the original lump was also benign in June of 2009 and by January of 2010, it was cancerous. A small knot now could have been......Well, needless to say, I think the bilateral mastectomy was a very good decision.
Following this appointment, I flew home to get Keagan. She has not been feeling well and running a very low fever off and on for about a week. I looked at her this morning and knew she needed medical attention. The two of us went to Prime Care to find out that she has mono. DARN IT!!!
After my 2:00 lunch, I still had one more appointment and that was to the dentist. I could easily have fallen asleep in the chair, but I didn't. I am 9 days post op and exhausted after this very busy day.
