May 25: Consultation with urologist and anaesthetist.
June 1: Hospital - stents into kidneys
June 7: Consultation with surgeon and anaesthetist.
June 22: Surgery
Now if I could just get an eye appointment. I have one, but I doubt I'll be up for it on June 24. I'll throw myself on the secretary's mercy and see if she'll fit me in. I'm not optimistic.
Then I'll throw myself on the mercy of the dentist. I have more hope there; she's really nice. You can't get your teeth worked on while you're having chemo because you don't heal.
However, even if the optomotrist doesn't work out, I can now watch television. We bought a flat-screen 102cm (40 in) screen. It's a whole new experience after watching our portable for the last couple of years. I can see! I can read the subtitles! I don't need the subtitles! I can hear! (Better sound).
Lance Armstrong's foundation, LiveStrong, does fabulous work for cancer: lobbying, supporting patients and carers and providing information. I entered their virtual Tour de California. If I get placed high enough, Lance or one of his team will ride the Tour de France with my sticker on his bike. I am a big fan of his -- as a rider and as a fighter against cancer.
