It annoys me that my arms look like I'm a junkie. Blood taken 4 times in 4 weeks. Rolled & blew a vein 1.5 weeks ago. 3 sticks this morning, #1 vein rolled, #2 vein blew (the vein in the middle of the underside of the forearm, hurts like a mofo, gonna bruise badly, swollen), then finally stick #3 was a success in the same vein we used Tuesday. I sure hope I don't have any more for a few weeks, but I have another doctor's appointment Wed morning, so who knows.

It is annoying that I have to drive 4 hours round trip to see a doctor since the one in town refused to treat me. I also have to have the same damn minor surgery with imaging I had a month ago that supposedly showed nothing, but the scan with dye DID show the tumor we were looking for, so I have to have the first one AGAIN. This now looks like it WILL lead to outpatient surgery to remove that one small benign tumor. I want it done ASAP, we're already delaying my treatment by a month so I can have the MRI in April. Ugh! Why didn't the doctor see that one tumor the first time???

Yet another snow storm. I'm over winter already.

That I have to get in writing from my cardiac specialist that I CAN do the thing I was always told I could never do, in detail, so I can give to every other doctor I come across along this journey. I've had so many people tell me no that it's ridiculous, they don't understand the complexities of the different surgeries. My cardiac specialist says my repair looks "excellent", which is amazing since it was done during the early years of this new type of repair (insurance considered it experimental & we had to fight them to pay for it). I got yet another doctor referral for care after we finally get to my goal, so I will need at least 2 more doctors to see quite often throughout the process. Oh, and I just got needles for my new meds. I'm really going to start feeling like a junkie. Good thing I got over my fear of needles by age 9, I had no choice. I may not like them, but I can do it.

Certain coworker, who made a big fuss about becoming a trainer for this thing where we are supposed to help our coworkers & be nicer to patients and all that stuff, then is a huge b!tch the day we are inspected. She refused to talk to any inspector or help her coworkers in any way today. In fact, she was NOT going to get her own work done, so after I was done in the OR (8a-1p), I actually DID her work, minus the paperwork. Then she huffed & puffed over the paperwork until she went home. I know we ALL had to stay late yesterday and come in early this morning for this inspection, but YOU are a selfish b!tch. So much for "teamwork" and all the other BS she talks about.
