Gotta Date
Mood:  party time!
Topic: June 2005
Got an appt with City of Hope for this next Tuesday. I have collected my films, slides and hospital stuff. My surgeon's office says my file is "out in dictation". I faxed the request for my file 4 days ago. I asked if the transcription could be speeded up Lucy and Ethel and the lady said she had no control over that. Eesh, what's up with that! Well, hopefully I'll have the file for Tuesday, but I have collected a bulk of the information. So, I'm ready to rock 'n' roll on this stuff.

Ah, a 4-day weekend coming up. I get both Friday and Monday off! Ya-hoo! The possibilites are endless!

Friends and Family
Mood:  special
Topic: June 2005
I cannot even put into words how touched I have been these past few weeks by the outpouring of kindness, love, and support I have received from my friends and family. I ("Cold Sue") have teared up on more then one occasion. It means so much to me, to have such support, and it makes this so much easier. Strangers, who I hardly know, friends who I see only occasionally but I know are there for me, and family who is always there - have rallied in my support. I have also received beautiful handmade items. A beautiful handmade quilt to keep me cozy during chemo; dolls, stuffed animals, flowers, prayer cards, jewelry, and most importantly kind words of encouragement. No jokes today, just a HUGE THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!

Assemble the troops
Mood:  rushed
Topic: June 2005
This week... I need to gather up all my reports, films, slides, tests, etc. to take to the City of Hope where I'm waiting for a call back re appt date. So, I'm hoping that a few phone calls will do the trick. With a few stops at the docs' offices and hospital.

Writer's Block
Mood:  bright
Topic: June 2005
Um, can't think of anything to say. But ...that's a good thing. Things are good. Some of the topics I've tossed around in my head this morning include: family - what a great support group I've got; friends - wow, near and far, some I've actually met, others are my cyber sewing friends, they are all wonderful; ignorance - those that don't understand cancer or disease and think that somehow the afflicted person brought it on to themself; Advil, works great for muscle soreness; car accidents - that's what this is like, a wreck that I am watching from the curb, and someday it will all be over, I'll do a general assessment of my body and car, find out I'm ok, and say phew; sewing [must always include that] - I have about 3 things to cut out today and start working on, which one first?; co-workers - we should all be so lucky as me to work in such a great place; and/or Double Indemnity - watched that movie the other day - another great old movie!
It's Sunday, the sun is out, I think I'm gonna go float in my sister's pool!

Hair Today... Gone Tomorrow ....
Mood:  mischievious
Topic: June 2005
Wow, I slept good last nite, even after watching "Night of the Living Dead". That 1968 movie where the carnivorous dead zombies come back to life due to radiation exposure or leak or something. "Pits the living against the dead in a struggle for survival". Ah, those old movies, aren't they great!

So, I'm cancelling my appts with Dr. Fallout and have a new appt with a new oncologist on July 7th. This guy was recommended by my endocrinologist who I really like. So, for now, I'm on vacation from docs until the 7th.

Hair... this is what I've been thinking. It's most likely it will fall out, fall out, fall out, so may as well have fun, fun, fun, before the ... fall out. Tonite I get my nails done (well, put back on, I'm an avid nailbiter, always been, always will be, so stop nagging me!). My manicurist, who I also really like, is also my hair stylist. So, for the next month or so, until the fall out, fall out, fall out, I'm going to experiment with different haircuts. I'm thinking I may first go for a longish bob, shoulder length, then take it from there. I will try to take photos and post them, so you can follow along. If you have any suggestions, pass them along. Maybe I should experiment with color too, what the heck, it will just fall out!
