Post-infusion consolation

Confusing oncology appointment today. I was all prepared with my clinical trial printouts and questions, but I was only scheduled for labs, Keytruda and a B12 shot. No doctor consultation. Maybe he wants to wait until after tomorrow’s clinical trials visit in Nashville?

I was obedient, but I left my sheaf of papers for the nurse to give to him, and I asked for a referral up in NYC as well.

Then I went to Beaver’s Dough-Joe, a recent gift to Knoxville of excellent doughnuts. I stuck with just a half dozen this time. Mmmmmm.

In support group we often talk about the need to schedule something fun right after a big appointment, a scan or, in this case, the big appointment that wasn’t. Having fun on the schedule makes the day consist of more than anxiety.
