C'mon Chrissy - Ari socked you didn't he!! LOL I hope it's settling down now. Your nose is looking much better :-)
Well, Bob is going in to see an Ophthalmologist in early December. Once you hit 75 in the ACT you have to have a yearly medical to renew your drivers license. The GP would only give him one for three months. It seems his left eye is pretty bad. When he had his cataracts done about eight years ago, he was told he had macular fibrosis, where the back of his eye was rippling. It wasn't bad enough to do anything about, but was told to have scans every few years to keep an eye on it. Well my darling husband isn't big on "following things up" and hasn't had a scan done since then. Now his eyesight is so bad, he's being forced to "see" about it.
I'm also booked in to see a genetic counsellor in the same week. My GP (who is wonderful) asked me at my last visit why I'd never been referred to one. I told him I didn't have sisters, daughters or nieces, so didn't think it was necessary. He's been putting in a lot of research in bc (tells me that he thinks I know more about it than he does, and wanted to rectify that! lol). He wants me tested, I still have both ovaries and it seems if you have the gene, then not only ovarian cancer, but a higher risk of pancreatic cancer and colorectal cancer. So - I've been referred and triaged and see them in early December.
I've also started to feel extremely tired. I don't think there's anything specifically wrong, I just think that working full time is starting to be a strain on me. I'm thinking about winding back to four days, and if necessary three days. My boss is wonderful, and I can work whatever hours is best for me, they want me to stay as long as possible, and happy to work around me, so long as I'm happy. It's a great place to work.
I have made a long journey and been to a strange land and I've seen the dark man very close ... Thomas Wolfe
