Today didn't go as planned. At all.
I arrived at the clinic for all of my pre-Gilenya tests, nervous but eager.
First, I was told my appointment had been cancelled, and that someone had called me. Umm, nope. Nobody did. Apparently, though - they had also called to reschedule. Again - nope. The rescheduled appointment is for next Tuesday - when I am away.
Big fail, receptionists.
(Gilenya will actually arrange for community-based appointments on your behalf, so this is what will happen for the eye exam now).
I spoke with the nurse, and we decided to go ahead with my heart tests and blood work, since I was already there. Off to Cardiology I went, to start with an ECG.
It was abnormal.
I did the blood work anyway, and now await a rendez-vous between my Neurologist and a Cardiologist.
Seriously - I think it's about time for some good health news.
This is deflating.
And feels a little fortuitous.
