Another sunny and warm day, today, with the highs in the low 80s. The evenings are cool and I've turned the heater on.
Went for my appointment with the radiation oncologist, this morning. The visit went fairly well. My latest blood test results were all good and I have lost another couple of pounds since my last visit. However, the area of treatment is still red and swollen and the doctor wasn't very happy about it. He had expected it to have cleared by now. He thinks the redness and swelling indicate an inflammation, although the area isn't hot to the touch. He prescribed a medication for it; I went to the pharmacy afterwards and had the prescription filled. I have a follow-up visit scheduled for mid-December.
After I came home, I had a roast beef cold cuts sandwich for my brunch. One of my friends had called and I returned her call. Then, I called another friend and a cousin. We have made plans for me to drive us to the Sri Lankan store tomorrow. I also exchanged texts with another cousin.
I spent the afternoon and early evening doing office work. This week's assignments have been sent in.
I didn't do any housework, today. But my gardener friend planted the plants I had bought 10 days ago. I forgot to take a picture, but the front flower bed is looking better. I will need to double up on the housework, tomorrow!
Dinner was leftovers from the freezer: rice, lentil curry, green beans, and cocktail sausages. Canned pineapple, fresh grapes, and yogurt for snacks and desserts.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Good blood test results.
- Medical care being available.
- No trouble getting my new prescription filled.
- Continuing to lose weight.
- Family and friends.
I had forgotten to post a To Do list for today (Friday), but all I had written down on my Weekly To Do list for Friday was office work and the doctor's appointment; both of those tasks were done, as well as the planting that was on the list of other things to do. I have listed the three tasks that remained undone on the Other Things To Do list as my Saturday's To Do list.
Saturday's To Do List:
- Clean the bathrooms
- Grocery shop
- Grocery shop
How was your Friday? What have you planned for the weekend?
