Well I was driving to Carrollton when I got the call from M.D.Anderson. After a short time on the phone I was told that I am not a candidate for evaluation until and unless I finish my chemotherapy. That won't be until January or early February. So there. I'm very disappointed because I really want them to help me sort out what surgical option is best for me, but we'll have to do that in 2008. I'm bummed. Really bummed.
I went to do some pottery stuff tonight. I couldn't really decide what I wanted to do, but I fiddled around and did a bowl and a little kitty thingy. Since it is something I can do sitting down, I could last the whole two hours and it was nice to meet some new folks and just do something with my hands. I have all kinds of ideas for things I want to take with me the next time I go. It is kind of fun to be doing something creative, even if I'm not very good at it.
For the first time in years and years I'm a little on the cold-natured side. I don't know if it is due to the fact that I'm post-menopausal (finally!) or if it's the result of being on chemotherapy, but we had a couple cool days, and the lightweight jackets that I've generally made do with over the last several years, just don't keep me warm enough. I'm such an extravagant person that the last jacket I bought for winter was purchased in 1989. You think I'm just too much of a spend-thrift?
