Coffee Clubs and Medication…

Herself was called in to see the doctor today and will have to go back again next week. .  A few years ago she had a mammogram and they found a suspicious lump. That led  to weeks of trauma  as we went from one set of tests and biopsy  to a another and different set of tests and a biopsy. They finally came to the conclusion that it was a benign cyst – which, to say the least – was something of a relief. Well she went for another mammogram last month and they now want to see her again and that’s why we went today. However,  with the new rules there needs to be a female nurse present  and she was not available so we have to go back again next week. I know you will wonder why I keep saying “we” but herself is slightly disabled and does not drive, thus I have to take her.   More than likely that it will be the cyst showing up again and they want to check it out – at least that’s what we hope it is.

We’ve put the lounge back together again and I’ve moved out the extra chairs back to garage until next time. I generally cover them in plastic sheeting to keep  most of the dust out. Now the coffee group has moved on to a new venue for July and it will be some time before they are back here again.  However, not as long as one would imagine since a few of the ladies are in nursing homes, or  retirement villages and don’t have the facilities to be able to hold the group where they live.Actually when you think about it, it’s not so bad and supper is always interesting- some of the ladies are really good bakers.

Have completed the Agenda for the Ordinary  Meeting  and the Agenda for the Annual General Meeting. We have an Ordinary Meeting to tidy up any outstanding business before  we  hold the AGM with  the Rep.from Central Operations in Adelaide assuming the chair as all positions are declared vacant. I really don’t know how I would manage all this without my Filofax –  between that and work and medical appointments,  it helps to keep me to keep track of everything and I have it synchronised with my computer. It keeps me sane — Well we won’t go too deeply into that!  The only problem is that I have to send either to the UK or the USA (mostly USA) for refills.Well, it’s cheaper to buy the inserts from the USA and pay postage costs than it is to buy them and have them posted from Sydney.  Strange, but true…

Coffee Clubs and Medication?????  I thought coffee was medication  :o)

  1. Every time I went to a Dr. since moving to AZ, I was told to get counselling because *obviously* I was a hypochondriac. Conditions got so bad that in 06 I studied the medical web sites to come up with symptoms of relatively common illnesses (symptoms I didn’t have, incidentally) just to see if I could get 1 Dr. to look in the areas I was having problems. I had more than a few questionable lumps and bumps. 7 biopsies and 11 surgeries and procedures later, with a few pounds lost in removed organs, I’m still not clear on what was really wrong. Apparently I really didn’t need to know. It didn’t take long after the last surgery before I was back to ‘get counselling, you’re a hypochondriac.’ At least by that time there were no more pain issues, so I was able to sleep again…

    I’ve taken the position of mind over matter. If I keep it out of my mind, it doesn’t matter. So far, it’s been the best medical advice I’ve given myself!

    Glad everything turned out well for Herself!

  2. I totally understand this – I’m the worrier- Herself tends to take these things in her stride.
