A Week to Leave One Weak

Another day, another hospital . . .
One gets tired of being a pin-cushion.

Monday saw another visit to Entabeni Hospital for an Ultrasound and then an MRI.

After lunch I spent the afternoon and evening on a sample edit and quote for a book from a writer in Nigeria.

Today, after a night of sundry interruptions to sleep from bickering cats, saw a visit to Parklands Hospital to the Cancer Centre where after studying the scans my doctor scheduled me for another batch of Radio Therapy. I wonder if I should go for having East Coast Radio played at it to blast it out of sight, or Classic FM to soothe it to death?

Scripts for more meds were added for the alchemist’s den I have already had created.

Visited Sister-in-Law and fixed a sticking plug in the basin. Then there was watching, and picking up from, hockey practice for Jeneva and Squad Swimming for Rhiannon. After which I caught up on a spot of sleep before giving the kids some keyboard instruction.

Tomorrow there is a Board Meeting of Durban and Coast Horticultural Society, and probably kid pickup again.  Then a visit to my GP to get pre-authorisation for the Radio Therapy, and to the Pharmacy for the latest batch of pills.

Thursday sees a Squad Gala.

The rest of the week is bound to fill up with commitments, among which are to fix the back light of the Toyota and to replace the front emblem which was stolen (I’m sure it didn’t just fall off) in the past day. It looks really cheap and nasty without it.

    If you really want to piss it off, may I suggest heavy metal or perhaps grunge 🙂 … may the treatment go swiftly and well.

    I am so sorry your pin-cushion days are still keeping you so busy, Leslie. You do amaze me with the way you fit it all in, and I am very admiring of the time and attention you give those two beautiful little girls. I can imagine that their love and affection is the best medicine of all.

    Better to stay busy than have time to mope.
    All the best Mister N.

    Awe! Not easy! Seems we are all getting busier, or is it slower at getting things done! Thinking of you with the treatment. Greetings to MBH and take care of yourself!


  6. I am sorry about your needing more radio therapy. Maybe you should listen to a good audio book rather so that you are entertained. A large part of cancer treatment seems to be about attitude [in my limited experience].

    When it rains, it pours.
    You definitely need a radio station of equal or greater evil to defeat the cancer – any of the SABC stations should do! 😀

    Sorry about more radio therapy, seeing as you kind of offered us a choice I should sooth it to death with the classical!
    Keyboard instruction – computer or musical?

    God bless you buddy, will keep you in my prayers. If you ever need to talk just let me know
