Frank and I both saw our family doctor this morning. My bloodwork was okay and no apparent reason for the extra tiredness. I didn't do well with the Ambien (sleep aid)... I felt like I was in another universe... and not a good one. During the daytime I was a little loopy. Frank said I was really weird when we shopped at WalMart the other day. He said I kept staring at the shelves... just looked confused. The plan for me right now is to do nothing.... if I continue to be so tired.. then we'll do something else; which the doctor didn't want to reveal yet. I have a referral to an orthopedist on the 12th of May that might help figure out my shoulder pain. My shoulder keeps me awake a lot at night, so maybe just figuring out the cause of the pain and a good treatment plan is all I need to get rid of my extra tiredness.
Some numbers on Frank's bloodwork were a little high (which was expected), but the doctor said his body may still be reacting to the surgery... so he does more bloodwork in a month. Frank is trying to get the once a month treatment of octreotide figured out with the oncologist surgeon today. I think he has the process about completed. Once a month sure beats three times daily!
I love soups and stews! Brunswick stew that is what we fixed for dinner yesterday with enough left over for today. Its great for the main dish or a side dish for barbecue ribs... just anything off the grill.
I need to find out how to photograph food... I can never get it the way I envision it. Anyway the stew was better today than yesterday. Go over to my Recipe Blog for the recipe.
