Popping Cancer: The Dumb Just Keeps Coming
Rant button on.
On Monday, February 21, I have a relatively simple outpatient procedure to implant an under-the-skin catheter so they don't have to keep stabbing me to start IVs. Fine.
No food or drink after midnight. Also fine. The usual.
However, surgery is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. That's 2:30 in the afternoon!
Maybe I go all morning and half the afternoon without food just to suit the doctor's schedule.
Or maybe, just maybe, I eat about a dozen scrambled eggs at high noon and don't tell anyone. Who has the problem then, Mr. Surgery Man???
Not to mention that the next three days in a row are all chemo days.
It would appear that this is the world I live in now.
Ok, the rant button has been set back to "off."
