Bootsie, I second all Sandy’s recommendations.I’m one of Douglas Merkel’s BCO sisters- didn’t know there were others here. And there is the wonderfully skilled empathic Kevin Bethke at Northwestern.
On another note, on another forum, Sandy, about USPS, almost none of our mail is reaching us from Evanston to Glencoe. Very little that is forwarded gets to us. And my Eagle Pharmacy shipment of Arimidex from Florida, sent USPS July 13 has not arrived. I have been calling in vain, writing damning notes on Eagle’s Facebook page. Finally, a young woman at Eagle, named Shantasia, called and arranged to have Eagle overnight me a 60 day supply. I paid the $120 med charge, they the overnight UPS. I’ll have to call again tomorrow and try to get a $180 refund for the missing, presumably lost, 3 month supply,
And, because, as they say, it’s one thing after another, I have two small, but Squamous Cell Invasive spots on opposite sides of my forehead that must be removed by a Mohs procedure. So I need a Mohs expert and a plastic surgeon. The surgeon has a coordinator who will arrange the scheduling. Obviously, I hate all this, am not totally vain, but imagine my Zoom friends will be horrified when they see Frankenstein stitches across my forehead and maybe a skin graft. What makes it worse is my tendency always to blame myself. Though for years I’ve been sun careful, I have used the iRestore Laser Light helmet because Arimidex thinned my hair a little. Now researching it, I’m convinced it’s the cause. Must just accept that stuff happens and that I am in control of very little.
