Today, my wonderful friend Marcy (the ovarian cancer warrior princess in my life) and I are off to cancer camp! We will be spending the weekend at Harmony Hill.
I’m not exactly sure what to expect. Truthfully, it all came up so quickly. I did not do a good job of reading all the literature either. I know, not really a good thing, but my week got hectic towards the end of it.
Wednesday A.M. when I was headed off to my monthly OHSU triathlon (blood work, EKG, and pharmacy) I experienced some impaired vision. I was very concerned. Well, I cannot lie to you, I freaked out. The result was adding appointments to my already stressful oncologist appointment week. My eyes and optic nerve checked out okay at the eye doc. My auto windshield is streak free after a trip to the auto spa. All is fine and I am no longer convinced that I have a brain tumor. To help settle my worries even more, Dr S has added a brain MRI to my next set of scans – mid February.
The timing of cancer camp is quite good. I could use some time away.
