A Week in the Life of Dollycas

This was a busy week.

Monday was a full work day as I tried to catch up for the time missed last week.

Tuesday was my Medicare Wellness appointment with my primary doctor who I hadn’t seen in almost 2 years as he never had appointments when I needed him and saw one of his associates instead. I had scheduled the appointment back in February and September 26 was his first available appointment. That had to be rescheduled for November 1 due to my hospital stay. I swear as if I haven’t had enough issues he always has to find something new to treat. This time is my feet. He has referred me to a podiatrist for a variety of things because I am borderline diabetic. He added a new medicine too and wants me to start taking iron tablets because the cancer drugs have made me a little anemic.

Wednesday was a big day for me. I had my final dose of antibiotics at 9 a.m. and my home care nurses were here at 12:30 to remove my PICC line. Again, I imagined it was going to be much worse than it actually was because I looked the procedure up on Google. What took the longest was getting all the tape and bandages off. Then the line was just gently pulled out, pressure applied for about a minute and a small band-aid applied. It hardly bled at all. I am still removing the adhesive though. I am sorry I didn’t take a before picture but it had an open wound about the size of a quarter on my elbow surrounded by very thin skin and was not very photogenic. There is still a lot of fluid retention and bruising right now but to me it is gorgeous. I didn’t lose my arm, the open sore is gone and hopefully, I have really kicked the infection to the curb.

Thursday was another full workday. Then I ventured out of the house for a much-needed haircut. I love that my curls keep coming back.

Friday night meant another football playoff game and Mother Nature was fierce. It rained all day and throughout the game. It was light rain a few times but the 4th quarter was brutal. We all looked like drowned rats. Our Cardinals were the victors with the final score of 35 – 6. They are moving on to the semi-finals and will be playing at a neutral field about 25 minutes from where we live. The freshmen didn’t play, but they warm up, support the team, and walk the sideline all game to keep learning as much as they can. This is the time to let the upperclassmen shine and they didn’t disappoint.“We’re built for mud,” Columbus coach Andrew Selgrad said. “We’re good mudders. Man, is it sloppy out here, but it was fun.”

I am just glad I didn’t have to wash these uniforms.

We did pick Natalie up to go to the game with us. She spent a lot of time with Remi and met up with some friends too.

Then on the way home, we had a stowaway. Remi is here for the weekend. It is rare that we get him by himself and we loved it.
