Just back from the doctor... DH was able to join me. I was so glad to have him there! It's the first doctor's appointment that I've gone to where I actually had someone with me in over 6 years! He was very helpful and he was able to take notes for me and help to interpret some of the language barrier for me as my doctor is Romanian and had a thick accent.
Long story short... I went for labs straight from the office... she is going to schedule me for nuclear medicine for a full body scan within the next 6-8 weeks. She is checking for a good baseline and to verify that nothing has metastasized. She has several issues to work on... my bone density is a major factor and may be what is causing my back aches. Also, quality of life and my constant fatigue... along with my not sleeping. (Yes, Pearl, I'm up at strange hours because I cannot sleep or stay asleep!)
So... that's the news about that for now! I am exhausted and hungry... so we are going to forage for food up in town!
Thanks for reading... be blessed!
