Well, it didn't start out so good, as I was getting ready to head out the door to my 10:20 appt, 30 minutes away in rain, the nurse called me and said I would have to reschedule since I was over 15 late for my 9:40 appt. If you are 15 minutes or more late they will reschedule you. This is the second time in a row there was a mis-communication about my appt. both times I had appointment cards given to me by them that stated a different time than they had on their computer. I explained again that my appt was for 10:20, as was the last time, she said if I was on my way they would work me in. Thank you specialists. I left and hurried, but I couldn't find a parking space, then when I got to the office, no one was at the front desk, I was saw a note, the office manager was sick, to feel out the I don't feel like killing myself or anyone else questionnare. I called the heppers office number and got the office manager, told her there was a mixup on my appt and I was here. The staff does not know the meaning of keeping everyone in the loop.
The nurse came out and said that the office manager said I was 15 minutes late and would have to reschedule, I explained that I actually had 2 minutes to spare according to my cell phone, plus I was in the office 5 minutes or so before calling her. The nurse said she would check, and work me in, man I was on the irritable going off on someone edge. I chilled.
I let it go, saw Dr Schwartz and went over my blood work, I am negative viral load right now, after 4 weeks, which means instead of 50% chance of btb,(beating the beast).my chances had zoomed to 90%. with only a 10% chance of relapse. Woohoo, 40 weeks to go(any humble pie fans, 40 weeks in the hole).
She also said I was close but not within the thresholds of getting rescue drugs for my low WBC and platelet count.
Too make a long story longer, if I can deal with the sx for 40 more weeks, Woohoo!, Without killing myself or somebody.
Peace and Health
