Doctors appointment...or lack thereof!

People are wondering what happened at Paul’s doctor’s appointment yesterday…well, his appointment got canceled because the lab results weren’t in.  We are tentatively scheduled to see the doctor this Friday.  Yes, we know this is really dragging out…maybe it is a good sign that they will find something…we can hope!

We have been waiting to meet with the doctor before we can make any real plans for our trip to Disneyland.  We need to know more about what will happen with chemotherapy and all that “good” stuff.  We feel like our life is in a holding pattern…not what you want to have happen when your time is limited…

Paul and I are quite the pair.  I don’t want to eat because it hurts.  I can only eat very small quantities of low fiber food.  I have problems taking my antibiotics because they get stuck (esophageal issues from reflux—not related to diverticulitis).  Hmmm…this all sounds so familiar…sounds like what Paul deals with every day. 

Honestly, I didn’t need this to teach me compassion.  Especially, since I know how much Paul suffers.  My heart hurts every day as I watch my love struggle.  It is just a little harder to take care of him when I feel like crap!  I am starting to heal.  After having a reaction to the first antibiotic, I hope I will be back to normal soon! 

Thank you to everyone.  We are so appreciative for all that you do!  Here is to hoping for good news on Friday!
