I met my new replacement primary care provider today, and I really like her. There is some concern over white blood cell counts, the kind that could indicate leukemia. Hmm, I wonder if it runs in the family! What variety might I have? Not much one can do about it, but I’ll go to a hematology/oncology specialist (shades of my mother) and see what comes of it. You gotta die of something!
A nice lady volunteer drove me there and back. She was born and bred here, never left, so we talked STL trivia. Go Cards. (I had already arranged the ride before I knew I was getting to borrow the car. So I get to meet a bonus person!)
I had another first today, though insignificant–I drove myself to Aldi for groceries, for a change. (I really miss having a car.)
I had time at home to get a few items of business done, then later I picked up S from camp. He continues to thrive there, and is learning how to follow directions and cooperate. I’m impressed with the way his counselor understands how to patiently work with a neurodivergent kid like him.
I ran a drugstore errand for Avdi and myself. My doctor has upped the dosage of my anxiety/depression meds, and I’m curious to see if that works. The beginner’s dose I’ve been on is negligible.
I feel like I had a mini-vacation, but it’s back in the saddle again tomorrow. Tomorrow night, Stacey will arrive in town with K and E, which will change the dynamic once again.
These are additional photos from this past week. Just a hint of the coming of fall is in the air, bringing me almost full circle to my debut here a year ago. It’s been a very full year of learning experiences.
