A Week Off


I still can't believe it but it finally happened.

 Me and the Mr finally had a week off from doctor visits. I can't tell you the last time we didn't have at least one doctor visit per week sometimes two. Although, if Mr's doctor was any good we would have been back in there this week. I'll explain that a little ways down in this post. 

I did have to go out one day this week to get our produce for the week and put gas in the car. My goodness gas is so HIGH. I mean seriously, I don't get it.. Why is it so high? Here in the South we are now at an average of almost $2.70 a gallon which, it may be higher in other parts of the country but that's high for here and while the economy may be doing well, for us poor folk it's the same. No money and can barely afford to pay bills and gas up the car. 

I wanted to do a lot more around the house this week than I did. I haven't physically felt well all week and I attribute that to my hormones. Ah, the joys of being an 'older female'. I have many de-cluttering projects on my list. Yes, I'm a list maker. Without my lists I'd forget everything even if it were staring me in the face. We just have so much "stuff". From small stuff to large stuff and I want it gone. Can't stand looking at it or moving it anymore. I did manage to clean out one drawer so far so I guess that's something. 

So what's the story with my Mr and his doctor. A few months back my Mr found three lumps in his right breast tissue. At the time the doctor said it was Mastitis. That diagnosis hasn't sat well with me but he gave Mr some antibiotics and an anti-inflammatory. It 'seemed' these lumps were beginning to shrink but they weren't gone so two Monday's ago he refilled the same meds and told us that we don't really have anything to worry about unless they get bigger. 

Okay so we just have to keep an eye on them about getting bigger. What he didn't talk about was, what do we do if there's MORE? Yes, last week Mr found three more in the same breast tissue and he also has one on his bicep near his tattoo. I have called that damn doctors office THREE times. No return call. 

On Monday I will call again and demand he been seen right now and at the same time I am calling to see if I can get him a new doctor. So once again, I am worried, anxious, afraid. I have no idea what this could be. It could be breast cancer (yes men can get breast cancer) it could be Lymphoma, it could be fatty tumors it could be anything at this point but I am frustrated as hell at his doctor. I want to know what it is and what can be done about it. 

So this was my week. A little scary and a bit boring but you know, I have always said, boring is better because most of my life it's been chaotic so anytime I can have boring I am grateful for it..

  1. Three more. Well, that's not good. ANd one on his bicep which to me would mean it has mothing to do with Mastitis. It is incomprehensible to not get a call back from a doctor's office. I think I would call to schedule an appointment because really, what will the nurse say when s/he calls back? Any lump is flip-out territory. It's so odd the doctor didn't do a biopys or ultrasound on them. How big are they? Pea, marble, jumbo gumball?

  2. I get over whelmed too when cleaning but I just concentrate on one side of the room at a time not the whole room. Praying for Lou and you.
