Follow-up on the MGUS

I talked about my bloodwork and upcoming (then) appointment with the doctor. I said something about some numbers being high.

As it turns out, I’m not qualified to make predictions based on my own lab reports. Who knew?

The doctor (an expert) said that my numbers are stable. She did not order another bone marrow biopsy or skeletal survey. She told me to come back in 6 months to be checked again.

So I had my husband worried for no reason. I’m not sure why he thought I knew what I was talking about. He knows I’m not a doctor.

The moral of this story is don’t look at your lab results before a professional can tell you what they mean.

Will I do the same thing again next time?

We shall see.

When I Can

I’m at a doctor appointment with Dad; just a routine follow-up for the formerly cancerous kidney.

The doc is taking forever to come in, so we’re waiting in the exam room.

I have my Kindle, and I’m in the middle of Alice Close Your Eyes. Reading this book is making me want to write. When I connect with a book I’m reading I tend to start thinking in its rhythm and style. That’s happening now.

It’s difficult to write at home. I don’t have a comfortable, ergonomically sound place to sit with my laptop.

It occurred to me that if I want to blog, I may have to take advantage of the WordPress iPhone app. I’m using it now.

So I set this aside for a few hours. Now I’m back. The news on the kidney is good. Hurray for Dad!

After that appointment, I took Cammie, our chihuahua, to the vet. The news was not good for her. I’ll post on that another time.

The point of this post is this; I need to write anytime I can. The iPhone helps me to do that.
