    Today I got a nice call from my new oncologist about my blood work. He sounded warm and friendly. As I said, when I met him 2 weeks ago, his

    question was about me fighting and complaining. I guess I was given a good rating by the doctors I don't fight with.

    I had to have the labs mailed to me, and I didn't open the results, but mailed the envelope and all. I wrote a note the lab made another procedural change, and thanked him for taking me on as a patient.

    Anyway he confirmed that everything is in range. I guess the other doctors told him that I have hissy fits if glucose or cholesterol are mentioned, so he didn't mention those.

    I guess it helped that I took my ankle supports off and wore some old sandals--my feet show me to be very healthy glucose wise. I had a primary care creep that labeled me as diabetic---I sicced my oncology radiologist on him. woof-woof- grr- My OR did a good job--the network called me up and got me my current primary care doctor---and I don't have diabetic feet.

      Sometimes you just gotta shake things up, even if it's your doctor.
