fructosaminebone marro biopsy



This was the most stressful move than I have ever had, I use to be in the Army so moving with 5 kids was no problem. Now this trip with only 2 kids was harsh.We came from Maryland then through Virginia and a snow storm we had this 26 foot truck with all of our stuff in it and our van towing behind and I was so afraid that I was going to lose everything. But we made it through the storm without a scratch! We drove 30 hours straight rotating our drivers. THen we arrived to the new house and it was not what I saw from the pictures, I was a little disappointed, because the house is so small, but my kids made it very livable for even the kids who come home for christmas or summer break. it's a little over 2000 sq but coming from a house with over 3000 sq it was hard. Any ways I had to find and change doctors, with records from some doctors, some we had to fax paper work too. Well I found a great cardiologist/EP specialist, he really understand the complexity of my heart problems...I waited in the exam room for 20 min and the doctor poked his head in and said he was breaking down my records into chapters lol. yeah it was over 500 pages. He was very good, he explained to me why he wanted to change some medicines and increasing the dosage on some medicines. His reasoning is great I agreed to his changes...at least he was replacing something already on the med list so I was happy. I found an Endocrinologist, I didn't get to see the doctor I asked for but I think the doctor I have seen is pretty good. He was one of the only Endo's that knew why I needed a fructosamine test instead of an A1c. THen I found an Oncology doctor, I went with a cancer center called Texas Oncology it is very nice most of the test can be done right on site. The doctor thinks I have a rare slow goring blood cancer, told me that after the first of the year we will be doing a bone marrow biopsy, probably in February. he wanted to wait until my foot surgery had healed. I had a bunionectomy done on both feet on in Sept and One in Nov, still wearing the big boot but hopefully I will come out of it soon. The hardest thing about moving was leaving my doctors, yes I miss my family but the doctors I had, had me feeling good so now I must go to new doctors were they may want to change my medicine or something like that. That's where I have been and how I have been doing. How are you?
