Frikken Friday!

Life caught up with me this week, of all weeks for it to do so.........

I have been not quite well, with cold sores, sore throats and other such stuff...

Is typical of life sometimes is it not.....

I cannot be wonder woman ALL of the time, someone should have told me!

Snort!

Poor John has not been experiencing me at my best........ I am taking him somewhere nice this weekend I hope......we will go exploring Port Stephens I think :)

Oncology appointment with mum yesterday was a farce!

We saw a registrar who had us in and out in about 5 minutes flat......end result, no blood results, and an appointment for 8 weeks away with a new CT scan to be done before that.
Mum's happy with that because it means no chemo for at least that long.
I am spitting chips, or would be if I had the frikken energy, I would have liked to have kicked that mans arse for him. I had to fight him for a script for pain relief.....what is it with doctors and not giving dying people narcotics???

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr........

So, today I must ring up and yell at people so I can get the blood results that we didn't get yesterday.

Today I think I am lunching with Lisa.

Today I am not worrying about having 5000 cold sores because yesterday I saw a woman with half her face cut out........cold sores go away!

Perspective people, this week is all about perspective and looking at what is important and what is not. I don't have an answer, but then, I haven't really asked a question.

I have been quiet I know, but sometimes it be like that :)

Hmmmm..... there is good in that post....somewhere......

I fully understand what you mean about the inability to adequately control pain.... Is your mum looked after by a palliative care team? There is a specilaist pain team that is available for consultation. The pall care team, together with the pain guys are the best ones for the job, in my rather limited experience.

It sounds like the medicos don't sem to concerned about a time frame. But, pain control is so very important in relation to the quality of your mum's life.
