I AM ON MY WAY. I CAN GO THE DISTANCE.
Hercules from the movie "Hercules"
I am thinking about changing my name to "Rocky Balboa" Oliphant 'cause I'm going to start whupping on a whole new fight. Yup, I found out today that I am stuck with my plastic tubing and "grenade" containers for a while. I was just kidding when I mentioned I may be wearing this equipment until Christmas, but somehow, that doesn't seem so funny or so impossible right now. Went to the doctor today and found out I am still producing too much fluid to remove the hoses. Talk about being an over-achiever on something so stupid! I am aware of the consequences if they are removed prematurely. The danger of my arms swelling up is too likely, so I'll just fuss and fume and wait it out.
Doctor Andrews said that the more I use my arms, the more the output of fluid there is, so I am to stop using my arms for almost everything. Unfortunately, life must go on and I can't just shrink-wrap my arms to my sides so that they won't move. Oy vey.
Since I can't take chemo while wearing this drainage apparatus, I had to cancel my Thursday appointment for another week. No big deal. But this is still very annoying. So, you can probably guess that I am in a perfect snit, totally bummed, P.O.ed, having a hissy fit, and am as mad as a wet hen.
I called and made an appointment to see some wigs at that Jeffrey Scott Salon. It's getting to be that time, kids. I'll try and stay away from the Eva Gabor look or the long flowing locks like Farrah Fawcett wore. Just something simple in a middle-aged, whitish-blonde beehive hair-do! No? Well, I'm sure I'll be able to find something that won't scare the beejeebers out of the grandkids. Say, while I'm in town, maybe I should check out a T-shirt place and order a fightin' shirt complete with my new fightin' name. Cue the theme music from ROCKY.
If, however, there is a problem with the copyright laws concerning using the Rocky Balboa name, I do have a back-up that I could use. What do you think about JANENE "JUGS" OLIPHANT? Since I may be dragging these darn jugs around for a while, it may be more appropriate anyway.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
