Today has been a long day. I started off seeing the ear, nose, and throat specialist that my oncologist referred me to. I was expecting a thorough examination of my sinuses. I was not expecting to have my nose cauterized. Did I mention the freakishly long scope they stuck up my nose?? *sigh* No sign of polyps or infection but he's unsure if there's inflammation further back, something to explain the excessive pressure I'm feeling. Now he's sending me for a ct scan before proceeding with this week's chemo treatment. Please pray that I don't have to delay treatment and that I'm well enough to continue on course.
This afternoon I saw my dentist. Good news, only one tiny cavity and he almost missed it. Everything else looks good so this rules out dental issues as the source of my pain. 4.5 years ago he found 5 cavities that appeared within 6 months. I refused to have them filled and instead treated them naturally. All 5 healed themselves and I haven't had any further trouble. I'll do the same with this one. The best part of this visit was having my dentist ask about my oral hygiene routine and then having him tell me to keep doing what I'm doing because clearly it's working! Bonus: he only charged me a small fraction of what it would normally have cost me to see him since my insurance doesn't cover him. Hallelujah!
I have 4 more appointments tomorrow. This is my life right now. I hate cancer.
but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
I'm leaning heavily on the Lord right now, needing his strength to get through everyday tasks.
