If I want to blame the Obama presidency for something, I would say it's that they don't tout their successes enough. They aren't braggarts. They could be, because in spite of the do-nothing Congress they've still managed to get change accomplished. Those other folks, my god, it's like they're on something or dropped in from another planet. I couldn't understand what they were talking about last week, I really, really couldn't! And apparently the fact checkers couldn't keep up with their labors, there was so much deception. Just that alone gives me pause. Call me old fashioned, but I'd like to trust the leadership.
In the meantime, tomorrow's radiation schedule was cancelled for the moment. There's another mass that needs to be evaluated first. It hasn't progressed in over a year, but the radiation oncologist wants a PET scan to be certain that the field is large enough to manage both issues at the same time, if necessary. There are some areas that he doesn't want to radiate and he said it's not good to radiate an area a second time. Etc. I was willing to trust his judgement on this one. So, the next step is another scan and then regroup. I may end up with the same treatment plan that was under discussion this week, but with more information it may be very different.
Oh, and I learned that the 1-1/2 mile ambulance ride after the car exploded cost $2100! The co-pay brings it down to $100. Now I know what I will do in my next life on earth. I'm gonna buy me an ambulance, get an EMT certificate and drive folks back and forth between here and the closest hospital. I missed a career opportunity, that's for sure!
