I've got to give this cause up.

So some of you may remember I spoke about my grandmother whose doctor wanted her to have a bone scan to see if her cancer (she had a mastectomy in 2015) was back. I had gone with her to the appointment and she mentioned her bones hurt. She missed her bone scan because my uncle (which I have explained saps all her energy as he makes her wait on him hand and foot; they live next door to each other) had trouble that day with his health, so naturally the 60 year old had to have his almost 80 year old mother care for him. I knew she had an appointment with her surgeon on January 26th to get the results of the bone scan (she wasn't going to reschedule the scan, so I thought they'd handle it). So I called to remind her the day before, and she had forgotten. So she called and got the time of her appointment and went in on the 26th. I figured they'd either reschedule her bone scan, or send her down immediately to get it done. Only she went to the wrong doctor. You may wonder why I wasn't there. I live 2 1/2 hours away and am not in good health myself. I spent a week with her in December, and plan to go back in March. So I talked to her about it, and she said she's done. She said she doesn't want to deal with more doctors, and if the cancer is back, then it's back. I've done all I can do. My Nana is the second most stubborn person I know (my horrible uncle, my late mother's brother, is the first), and if she said she's done, then I know she is. I'll just pray it's not cancer, and that if it is, God will give us a clear path on what to do. Thanks for all your support on this. There has been some development on my uncle, but I'm too tired to write about it now. He even tires me out, and I'm nowhere near him!

@Tina30219 Yes, he recently remarried. He wasn't even thinking of dating until he went to see a fellow pastor friend in the hospital. Also visiting was a lady in the friend's church who used to go to our youth camp. She lived two hours away so it had been years since we'd seen her. They talked to each other at the hospital a couple times and eventually went to a movie. Now they're married, and I'm just glad I don't have to worry about leaving him alone. He was so sad it hurt to see it.

I would normally put that on my sister even though I know she doesn't want to have anything to do with it. She gets mad at my grandmother for not telling my uncle no. However, this time I give my sister a pass. The second child they are adopting out of foster care has a whole host of health problems, so I can't expect any help from her. My grandmother's sisters tried to talk her into putting my uncle in a home, but she got angry at them. So I don't think she would be receptive to their help.

I am sorry she went to the wrong doctor. Its not easy to try solving problems when the other person has decided what to do whether its good for them or not. We all hope that she is healthy and would see the doctor, if she needs to see the doctor.
