Manly zip 5 freebie
So much to do, so little inclination to do it. There were a lot of things on today's To Do list but I didn't accomplish much: got dental insurance stuff straight, picked up prescriptions for husband, paid bills, put some laundry away, made turtle brownies, and waited to hear from June. Today was just a consult with the breast surgeon who did another ultrasound there in her office, confirmed there is indeed some kind of lump (June didn't know whether in ducts or glandular tissue) and a concern about a lymph node. June called me in afternoon to report in. Says she likes the doctor and had an opportunity to talk with one of her patients who was there for a follow-up and is doing well. She felt less anxious afterwards. Asked me to go with her on Monday for the biopsy. Until we have those results we won't know what the situation really is. I had learned she doesn't have an advance medical directive in place and talked to her about it the other day. Today I printed out information - a "tool kit" the state has put together to explain what the directive is, how it works, why it's important. Also printed out the form so I can help her get that in place. There are things none of us want to think about but really should. http://www.4shared.com/zip/hYownl_Ece/ws_Manly_zip_5.html?
