A wonderful day

July 25, 2017 Tuesday

Again, I slept well and woke up ready for a nice day.  I ran some errands and was at the pool at noon, ready to swim with Sue and Paula.  The water was glorious and even though the pool was FULL of kids, it was still a nice time at the pool.  I was careful and I did wear my hat about 95% of the time.  I also wore a tee shirt to protect my chest and arms.  I also wore 55 SPF sunscreen on my face.  The sun reflecting off the water did have an impact on my face but my face is not burned nearly as much as it has been being before my precautions.

I also dealt with insurance all day long.  After calling the insurance company to see if they had received all the papers they were supposed to, I visited two doctor’s offices to ask about my claims being faxed in like they said they were last Thursday.  One of the offices had a confirmation form but they faxed it again today.  The other office has delegated the task to another service or something, but it was supposed to be faxed in today before the lady left.  The last time I called the insurance company, they had received two of the three faxes and I have high hopes that they will have the last one when I call them in the morning and ask again.  I definitely believe in being very proactive about pursuing my interests in cases like this, but I also believe in being very nice about asking them questions.  I am just so glad I don’t have to deal with this type of paperwork all the time.

After swimming and dealing with insurance (and beginning a new applique quilt), my main activity has been eating.  I have eaten more today than I have in a long time.  I don’t understand why I have done this but maybe it’s that I am getting nervous about my upcoming chemo on Thursday.  I used to eat a lot, even when I knew I was not hungry and that’s what I did today.  My brain is just a strange place and I certainly can not explain why I do what I do.  I just have to deal with it as best I can.  Hopefully tomorrow will not be like this again.

Morning weight – 213.6 Tomorrow’s number will be much bigger, I expect.
