Is It Over Yet? Good with the Bad
Sunday, December 13, 2020
Not only have I told you already about my heart ablation in July, my lumbar back surgery in October... now I have two other things going on.
I had an abscessed tooth. It will be pulled Dec. 22, then I wait 4 months and get an implant. The root is fractured. They will also do a bone graft which is why I wait 4 months.
Next up is I am waiting for an appointment for Mohs Surgery for basal cell carcinoma on my upper lip. It was biopsied week before last and I learned last week it is cancer. Now I am waiting to hear when they can remove it.
Then in January I will have a CT scan on my lower back and go back to the neurosurgeon on Feb. 1. Hoping to get rid of the brace I have been wearing at that time, but who knows????
Next week is my electrophysiologist appointment.
Good news is that the heart ablation cured my A-FIB.
Also the back is healing well and I am doing well. Who knew it would be so rough? I have been having physical therapy in my home and the last visit was last week. He left me a list of exercises to do. I should start back up next year in a PT office, instead of home.
My dh is retiring Dec 31. However, he has been offered a job with another agency and will start Jan 1. He is "burning" his sick time and vacation time to stay home to take care of me. I will miss him. At least if he wants to just walk away, he can.
With that and avoiding Covid and the political stuff... all I can say is that it is a year that will live in infamy.
