Oh I have Done it Again and Let the Days Get Away From Me

Lol, only have a moment here, I hate when I let so much time elapse. I have of course been quite busy, bringing in the first cuttings from thinning the Stevia most recently, lots of mint that has dried very nicely, as well as a constantly replenishing batch of chamomile blossoms which I keep rotating on screens, moving to storage as they dry.

As you may have read in previous posts I have been having some problems since just before Memorial Day with a new onset of pain, and a loss of voice which has been almost complete. I was sent for new scans last week after each doctor had checked me, and each one was puzzled and concerned with the increased edema evident through scope, and loss of voice, especially since it has dragged on for 4 weeks or more now. Friday I was supposed to get the scan results, but Dr. W said only the chest report was in, which was clear. The neck scan he said I will have to wait for a call.  Monday of course no one was in, I have waited for a ring all day, but no news so far. They say no news is good news though, so keeping fingers crossed.

I did get one hell of a workout this weekend though, as we brought in a load of hay, and had to get it up into the loft. I actually think (now that I am recovering a little from the really sore muscles I had lol) that I am feeling a little better. I have always thought that A good physical workout, really exerting yourself, was good for you. Maybe so, hopefully I am beginning another upswing. Last negative note, at Friday appt. weight was down another two pounds, I am now at 94 lbs.


  1. Thanks for the update on your doctors visits.

    I suggest rather than waiting, you should call them...

    Good thing your so patient.

  2. Hi John, How you doing? Good I hope:) You prompted me to post a "Why I do not trust docs to get back to me with test results post" lol, and yes, I put a call in this morning. My oncology docs are much more on top of things, and Dr. Bietler, my radiation guy at Winship is my favorite, he's the best.
