The Oncologist

MamaIt is way past my bedtime; that’s because I’m going to see the oncologist in about nine hours for my checkup and rather than facing it bravely like a grown-up, 44-year-old woman, I just plain old want to wake up my mother and say, “Ma-ma” into the phone like a little kid.

  1. Debbie and Cathy,

    Same old appointment (which is good and bad): “Tumor markers look fine… what? You’re still not taking Tamoxifen? See you in three months, non-compliant patient…”

  2. Debbie,

    That’s funny.

    Yes, we Dutchies are very stubborn, or as I like to say, “We’re a very determined people.”

    I was actually supposed to go to the oncologist this past December, but I was sick as a dog with a bad cold and didn’t feel like it. I plan on going before April (my “diagnosis month”), so don’t worry.
