I went to see a new naturopath in Etobicoke which turned out to be somewhat of a disaster.
He gave me some supplements which are currently bothering my heart. Went back to him today to see if I could get my money back…he only gave me 50% of what I paid for. What I got was a trip to the ER (heart failure symptoms again, I’m afraid…just when I was doing so well in that department and the cardiologist told me I didn’t need to come to see him). Oh well, c’est la vie. There goes another couple of hundred dollars. He made me feel that if I walked out of that place without his treatment, I was doomed. Not happy.

When I went to see my oncologist, he asked me if I was going to go on any kind of treatment because of whatever they seem to think they have found in my lungs. I told him that my benefits package included an oncology nurse and doctors and they seemed to think I should go back on tamoxifen (the one that gave me a TIA/stroke). He told me the chances of that helping at all were slim (10%) as we had exhausted all the other estrogen drugs he gave me. I told him, “Oh well. I’m weird. Maybe I’ll be in that 10% group where it does me some good and it stabilizes my cancer. You never know”. Guess who really and truly needs to buy a cell phone now? My dr. also said that in the next 3-4 weeks, I may experience fluid in my lungs which may need to be drained. Thankfully, that hasn’t happened. I think I’m good. I’m going to have a chest x-ray in another month to see what’s happening in my lungs.
Sending you some of the projects I worked on for Mother’s Day.
And then on Sunday, we took a leisurely drive to Richter’s Herbs to buy some organic plants, herbs and vegetables for the garden while my housekeeper cleaned the house. Stopped by a quaint little bakery and had lunch and then ice cream at Musselman’s Lake.
Overall, quite a lovely day.
By the way, guess who’s volleyball team won the championships? That’s right. Undefeated. Here’s our pennant. I’d post a pic. of our team, but I don’t want to infringe on anyones media rights!
