A day of Dr. appointments

 Glenn saw his nephrologist today and we got the lab results from last week. His kidney function is the same, no better and no worse. Other than that, nothing new to report there. He also was able to see the oncologist. That office is in the same building as the neph. so we went up there after that appointment to see if they had any cancellations. They were finishing with their appointments and were willing to see him at the time. It turns out that we were supposed to be going there weekly to have his labs checked. I was right! He did need to be checked frequently. His labs looked pretty good, but he is anemic and may need to get blood next week when we go back. At that office visit I ran into a couple who we met at the Hope Lodge in G'ville when we were there. I asked the husband how his wife is doing. He said they've done everything that can be done for her. So they are just making the best of their time together now. She is one who pushes herself to go and do as much as she can. I was amazed at how much she was doing when we were together at H.L. I'm glad we got to know them.
Well, we have a big July 4th weekend planned: lots of resting and staying out of the sun :-). We might eat a hot dog in honor of the holiday!
