Hi @outlander .  How did the appointment with your Pop's GP go today?  I hope it gave you a better idea of what is possible and what options may suit.


Busy day for me.  Dentist appointment for hubby this morning. They were late of course and waited close to an hour to get in.  Then it turns out they need to do some work on a tooth which is deteriorating under the crown.  So another hour long apt made for 4 weeks time to repair and another a week later to do something else that needs doing.  Took ages.


I came home and had a splitting headache, so took a couple of headache tabs and had a lie down while hubby slept after lunch.  Still didnt let up, so I didnt go to my usual Monday afternoon pilates class today.  I feel bad for not going.  But I just couldnt do it.  I have been feeling very dizzy as well, so it may have been a little dangerous to have gone. I think the blood pressure is dropping with the meds I started last week. It usually does.


So tomorrow hubby needs blood tests done.  Wednesday its up to the hospital for a series of CT scans. Thursday its to the exercise physiologist to try to keep him moving and help with balance, essential for his Parkinsons.  Next week its off to the Oncologist to review his blood tests and CT scans.  He saw his podiatrist on Saturday to treat an ingrown toenail which had become infected.  So if its not one thing, then its another.


No doubt you have something similar for your Pop?  


I am yet to hear from my psychologist about what response she has had from her letter to my GP for some stronger sedation for Fridays appointment at the hospital.  So I still dont know whats happening.  I'm finding it hard waiting and not knowing.  I'm typically a very organised person and like to know whats happening and what I need to do beforehand.  I'm guessing my GP is reluctant to provide the sedation my psych considers is needed.  She did tell me that if he refused, she would go elsewhere.  But I didnt agree to that.


I'm really tired so am about to head off to bed shortly.  Are you okay sweetie?
