Cardiologist: So, I have looked at your paperwork. You list "MBC / ILC" as a chronic condition. That's inhalation....
TC: No, sorry for the shorthand. Its stands for Metastatic Breast Cancer / Invasive Lobular Carcinoma.
Cardiologist: Oh, I am sorry. How long do you have to live? Have they given you a time frame?
TC: Not sure who the "they" are, but I am certainly frustrating the time frames that were given to me each time I declined chemo and radiation from the "they."
Cardiologist: Very good. Have they ever done a CT of your brain?
TC: WTH???? (because I am here having this conversation with you?)
