Today, I had my regular 3-month check up with the oncologist. The appointment went well. The tab test results were mostly good. The only problem was, the mammogram results were not as conclusive as they could have been, because the radiology lab had been unable to obtain a copy of my previous mammogram to compare. The oncologist's office submitted another request for the previous mammogram and I am to call them in two weeks to check on the status of obtaining it.
I also asked the doctor about bringing in more knitted hats to give the patients. I didn't take any in with me, today, because I wasn't sure if they were accepting them still. But, she said that, if I was making them, then, she knows me well enough to know that the hats will be safe to be worn by the patients. I usually wash them before I take them to the clinic, anyway, and I will seal them in bags, afterwards.
After I came home, I had the rest of the stew for brunch and practiced the piano.
Later, I walked for 15 minutes. I wanted to walk for 20 minutes, but, I got tired after 15 minutes!
In the evening, M came to tend to the garden and he planted the two moringa plants in the ground for me. He was upset to find that both plants had the larva of Japanese beetles among their roots! He basically had to pull apart the root ball and remove all the soil before planting the seedlings. We are hoping we got all the grubs out - I wonder if that was why the moringa plants lost all their leaves, a couple of weeks ago. They are starting to get new leaves, though, which is a good sign.
Still later in the evening, friend R called and we chatted on the phone for a bit.
Daughter sent in her drawing for today: the prompt was "rip".

Appropriate enough given how close we are to Halloween, I suppose.
Today, I am grateful for:
