Last week, I flew down to TX.  I got to spend a few days with two of my closes friends.  We had a lot of fun and girl time.  I enjoyed the two little boys I get to spend time with during my trip.  They are very cute!
On Tuesday afternoon, we played at the house.  I had fun.

Wednesday, we had lunch at the Chocolate Angel.
After lunch, we drove over to Sweet Firefly for some ice cream.

Thursday, we went to the Perot Museum downtown Dallas.  This is basically the old Science Place and Museum of Natural History.

Friday, after lunch, we stopped at the field of sunflowers.

On Thursday, I fell at sprained my left ankle.  My whole foot is bruised and hurts at times.  I came home Saturday afternoon.

Insurance Company Said "NO"

I was scheduled for a PET scan this morning.  Late last Friday afternoon, I had a voice mail from my oncologist office. (I had left my ringer off even after I got home.)  I have to get permissions from my insurance company to have a PET scan.  My oncologist ordered it back in March, to see what my lymph nodes were up, three months after surgery.  My doctor even had talked to my insurance company about why I needed it, and they didn't change their minds.  I am now having a CT scan on the 28th of this month. 

I kept my appointment for getting my port flushed, since it had been five weeks.  I talked the scheduler, for my oncologists office,  into getting an order for blood work for this morning.  I usually have blood work done a couple of weeks before my CT scan. I waited for the results, my white blood count and my platelets have  both dropped below the low end of the normal range.  With all of my bruises I have,  I am a little concerned.  Not sure if this is due to the Sarcoid or something else, I am keeping Wednesday's appointment with my oncologist.  I will see him again next month to get the results of the CT Scan.  Even blood pressure was a little high this morning.

My appointment with my lung doctor has also been pushed back to the day before my birthday.
