On the road again.....

Yep! It's happened.  I've moved and with said move must now find a new oncologist.  I can honestly say that I'm just peachy with this as my former one refused to utilize the lavage method (which means to wash or flush a cavity with saline solution) in order to get a clear pap.  The last appointment he claimed it was unnecessary, though former tests proved otherwise.  And thus, I was without adequate cells to get a clear test result.  Argh!!!!

So I am on the search again.  Luckily this time, I have some friends (thanks cousin!) who know people.  I shall soon be traipsing down to the University of Utah (Go Utes!) to get my insides scraped in hopes that I finally get a clear reading on where I stand.  I should still be on the 3 month test rotation, but the rapid change in circumstances has kept me from keeping my calendar as I should.  I really do want that 5 year title of SURVIVOR!!

In the meantime- I will again be calling my insurance company to find out their procedure and re-acquainting myself with said protocol so that I don't get caught unawares by the medical/insurance industry.

Hopefully everyone reading has had their yearly or has it scheduled.  It's a must my friends.  If we don't take care of ourselves....who will?!

All my love,
