Scheduling with a cancer center (ANY cancer center) drives me crazy. I had an appt with my doc at UT Southwestern scheduled for tomorrow. Today (less than 24 hours before my appt...) I got a call that I'll have to move that back a week because I can't start the trial until it's been 4 weeks since my last chemo. 4 weeks exactly is on Thursday. ONE FREAKING DAY.
So. I wait a week, and see the doctor next Wednesday.
One of the big lessons I've learned on this cancer journey is that I cannot control all the things. Most of the time, as it turns out, I cannot control any of the things. Scheduling has been a complete bummer for me 95% of the time. I resent how much time appointments take. I get irritated when apopointments are cancelled without notice, set up without notice, or switched around without notice. And if I have to go to a cancer center more than once a week? Forget about it.
Deep breath, calming breath.
In the large scheme of things, it isn't a big deal. I was able to cancel the sitter for the kids, get childcare set up for next week. Now I have an extra day to clean my house. Um, yay?
Another chemo free weekend...that's definitely a plus.
I also don't have to run over to Baylor today to get the CD with my scan pics until Thursday, when I will be there anyway. The kids would rather go to the pool today, which is what we're going to do right now.
I know in my rational mind that things don't always happen in my time. Please pray that I could be more accepting of that.
