Today was a great day.
First, I got a clean bill of health from my doctor.
“Your blood counts are great,” she said.
“Your organs are happy,” she said.
“I’ll check back in 6 months,” she said.
Then, I went for an hour long walk with my husband and our sweet puppy.
Later in the afternoon, I went to my hearing test. The audiologist confirmed what I already knew: my hearing is not getting any better. In fact, the chemo I endured in 2019 probably made it worse.
The good news is that I will explore hearing aids…again. Maybe this time they’ll work and I will be able to find a viable solution to a life-long problem.
After my appointments, my son, my husband and I went for lunch at an outdoor venue in downtown Calgary where we could also take our sweet puppy.
On the way home I noticed that downtown was teeming with Friday afternoon strollers. A rare sighting since COVID forced many businesses to shutter down.
Finally, we made a stop at the public library.
Now, I’m resting and enjoying a quiet evening at home.
All in all, a great day.
