Rob was still working on the wind breaker fence barrier on our deck this morning.
I had a Doctor's appointment this morning, just before lunch, to follow up on the blood work I had a couple of weeks ago.
The run down was Dr. Diodatio suspecting there was a lot more then the Fibromyalgia going on with the amount of daily chronic pain I have along with the fatigue. The blood work showed levels of inflammation, indicating suspected Rheumatoid Arthritis. I was told I had RA in my knees when I was in my 20's, and now it has apparently spread throughout my whole body now. I have been referred to a Rheumatologist in the Kitchener area so I can be further evaluated and prescribed the correct medication for control of it. He suspects this is more then likely a big contibuter of my fatigue as well.
As far as the dizziness and balance problems I am still having, I am to start keeping a journal on when and what I am doing when they occur. Hopefully I am successful at remembering to do this.
I had also been put back on the "high risk" screening for Breast Cancer, given my family history with my Mother, her sister, and their paternal Grandmother. The Doctor also ordered blood work for Genetic testing as well. I gave a very big vial of blood today. I will hear back from his office should the results be positive, otherwise I will be back to see him in another 2 months.
After my appointment I slipped in to see my sister, Jeanne, to take her a couple of bananas, and a very quick visit before going for the blood work. She looked much better today, however is to have more testing and remain there for a few more days.
After lunch I had an appointment at the Wiarton Chamber of Commerce office at 1:30, which lasted a good hour, then I headed to the pharmacy to collect my prescriptions.
Back home I had myself a bit of a rest until it was time to go to the Chamber Member's After 5 event this evening. I first went down to The Painted Turtle & Balloon Headquarters to collect fellow chamber member/owner, Wenda Bartley, to go along with me.
Hosting this Month's After 5 Event was Chamber Member, Luscious Bakery Deli Cafe, located downtown Wiarton.
With another full day behind me I am feeling as weary as I was this morning before I got going after a couple of hours before starting my day, however all is good, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.
