Lots of appointments coming up

Peanut's MRI is scheduled for next Monday, the 10th. They expect it will take at least an hour, and she will be under general anesthesia. Because of the anesthesia, she has to be NPO from midnight on. The problem is that with her metabolic disorder, she can't go that long without hydration. The MRI is scheduled at 8am, they want her checked in at 6:30am. Since she needs IV's before then, we have to check in at 3am! Holy smokes. YAWN!

I have a mammogram today. I am only 34. I had a massive breast reduction last summer, literally 10.5 pounds removed. Because of this I have tons of scarring issues. A month after the reduction, I had a mass the size of a tennis ball removed from my left breast. Now my left nipple is weird, and my doctor is really concerned. So I am going in for a mammogram and possibly ultrasounds. I am terrified! Everyone tells me that the smaller your breasts are, the worse it is. I am barely a C cup now. On top of that, my breasts still hurt easily! I am NOT excited about this afternoon.

I have to take Peanut to a GI appointment on Thursday, and her blood sugar monitor is supposed to be ready for me to pick up at the same time. Yay.

Cathy, you asked about the Mitrofanoff. We are scheduled for September 29th, but are on a waiting list for cancellations. I am actually eager to do this and get it over with.

There is so much to do in the next few weeks. I scheduled my first PTO board meeting this Thursday night. I am President next year, and there is a lot to do before school starts. Our budget from last year is a mess, and we need to schedule lots of events. And before you ask, YES I am crazy. LOL

We are waiting for our home health nurse supervisor visit right now. She is late of course. I just hope that our nurse shows up on time today! She tends to be late, and it wouldn't be good if she's late the day her supervisor is here doing a visit.

Off to vacuum and fold laundry. Does it ever end? I could do laundry every day and still have more to do the next day. I need a laundry fairy. :)

A lot on your plate, wow! I'll be praying for you and the mammogram. Breast issues are no fun and are really scary.

Laundry fairy? Oh man, I wish I could track that little bugger down. If you ever get your hands on her, send her my way when you are done. Oh, and a dusting fairy too!! :)
