How was your Friday? Good day? Sun shinning? The sun was not shinning in the ATL but the temperature was in the low 60’s and a bit humid but overall it was nice out. My day began with getting The Boy ready for school. He was spending the night at a buddies house so we also had to pack a bag with his clothes in it to bring to school. I went along for the drop off to school and then My Man drove to Brueggers Bagels to get us coffee and breakfast. I stayed in the car since I was still in my PJ’s. After breakfast, I did some work and then got ready from my three appointments at Emory Midtown Hospital.
My first appointment was a CT scan where they mapped out where they will zap me with radiation. The technician who ran the scan was very nice. She is going to have a baby in about two weeks! One thing Dr. Higgins failed to mention was that they were going to mark my chest up with a black sharpie. Yep, I have ten black sharpie marks across my chest. Each one is covered with a clear sticker. And I will have to keep them until JANUARY!!!! January people! She told me not to scrub at them in the shower. I then informed that I would be going swimming next week. She wasn’t thrilled about that but in the end she gave me a black sharpie and stickers and I promised to make sure that if they started to fade, I would remark them and put new stickers on.The marks are to help “line me up” for my treatments. I look f-ing ridiculous Reader’s. Ridiculous. I have ten black sharpie marks and four fresh scars on and around my chest. Won’t I look sassy in a bathing suit?!?
I meet up with My Man in the lobby of the hospital. He had been working and was on a conference call. Afterwards we walked a block or two and had some lunch.
Then it was back to the hospital for my chest X-Ray. The wait wasn’t too long and the X-Ray was very fast. We then went down two floors for my appointment with Dr. Pickens. He was only 45 minutes late! I had my stitches taken out and then met with the Doc. He basically went over what happen during surgery and that my x-rays looked good. We talked about why he thought radiation was a good idea and My Man ended the conversation saying he hoped we never see him again. We had gotten to the hospital at 10:30am and left at 3pm.
My Man has lost his wedding ring. He realized when we got into the car to leave for the hospital yesterday morning. It has to be somewhere in our around the outside of the house. We have been looking for hours. We took the sofa apart, moved it off the carpet (so much fur and so many cat toys under there!) but found nothing. However, the couch and carpet are all nice a clean now. He is now outside raking leaves in hopes that it fell off while we walked from the house to the garage. I feel so bad for him. It has been driving him crazy.
Today we are taking The Boy to get a haircut, Timber to get fluffed and buffed and his nails trimmed and we will be packing for our trip to Florida. I am also taking My Man out to dinner tonight for his birthday which is on Monday. My Man is getting so old!! I hope you all have a wonderful Saturday aka Caturday!
