First off - the border zin beds have been planted and protected. I cleaned out Dollar General and Dollar Tree of their colorful wire baskets. They are the perfect size for flower guards. I keep them in place with sod staples.
I also weeded the crabapple, butterfly bush & the end of the privacy fence beds. A little at a time. I also trimmed back the 2 front rhodys, and set up the deck umbrellas.
In between I went to the dentist - TWICE. There was no infection/abscess found from last weekend's pain and puff. It was my jaw that was swollen. The xrays (Monday) showed nothing. He thought I was grinding me teeth or that I'd irritated the joint. Wednesday, when I went back for a scheduled cleaning, all was fine. Then, later that day, it started to ache/swell again. I resorted to ice packs. Today it's seems ... better. Just one more thing that is 'fine', but ailing me. I don't get it.
I also had an FU with the endocrinologist on Friday. And the gist - I'm fine. Everything is fine. Sure I have Hashimoto's, but otherwise adrenals are good, nothing else is amiss, the thyroid levels are normal (for now), so bye bye - have a nice summer - come back in September and we'll ultra-sound your little lumps in your thyroid to see if anything changes. My spells? Well, they don't seem related to any glandular dysfunction. Again - no help, no treatment.
I've never heard from the cardiologist regarding the tilt-table test. I thought they were supposed to call me to set up an appointment once they got the order and that Medicare approved the proceedure. I'll give them some more time.
But, while I've been doing some gardening and doctor visits, I've also taking as much time as I could to visit my Mom, keep her in groceries and some treats, and have nice long phone chats with a couple friends. Y'see, for the past couple months they (like my endo & neuro docs) have mostly had to deal with the shaking, fearful, weak and tearful Kris. I want to to let them know that the real Kris is still in here, still hoping for a breakthrough, and not someone to be written off.
Tomorrow I'm going for the diagnostic mammograms & ultrasound. Please - keep a good thought for me. I'm hoping it's only calcium and/or cysts. Hoping REALLY hard.....
