Freezing Rain with a chance of book reading

Went to the oncologist on Friday for my quarterly check-up. All good. My lung x-rays were good, my CA-125 (the very first one ever) came back beautifully normal.

However I have some uncancer related lumps. 2 in my back and one on the bottom of my foot. We believe they are Lipomas, which are just little balls of fat. I am happy that the oncologists were not concerned at all. I went to my GP today and she referred me to an orthopedist for my back and a podiatrist for my foot. I have a lot of hip pain but she is convinced it’s not from the lipomas so that’s why I’m going to the orthopedist  The lipoma on my foot is on the bottom of my foot just on the inside edge of my heel so it is very uncomfortable sometimes. Burns like heck. I am a little frustrated with the onset of yet another weirdness in my body especially one that is causing pain when I try to do anything to physical, but on the other hand I have now been able to add a couple of more specialists to my list of doctors.
Vascular surgeons

that’s all the weird ones I can think of off the top of my head.
I have three appointments this week and another next week. I was surprised by how quickly I got in.

I started writing this about four hours ago. I’m sure I had something more entertaining to talk about than my ever growing list of medical issues but I don’t remember what it was.

I am reading a book called Swan Song and it’s very good. I am looking forward to my 2nd doctors appointment of the day so I can sit in the waiting room and read. 🙂 I hope the rest of the afternoon people don’t cancel because of the weather (freezing rain) and they get me in too fast. I discovered my app for books has a text reading feature so I’ve been letting it read to me while I get ready for work and then drive in.

I started playing the Candy Crush game that everyone was playing on Facebook a few months ago but then after a week I delete it because I get so mad at all the weird Faceook tie-ins. This last time I installed it I let it link to Facebook and now I get weird messages and “gifts”. I have no idea how people are sending me gifts or maybe I would gift them right back! I think it’s because I play on my Nexus and not through Facebook. I love games. And books. And cookies.
