It’s been awhile since I have written a blog post giving an update on my life and my health.
Things have been pretty crazy here. My health has been in a really steep decline. In fact, I have been in the hospital already twice this year. Both times I needed blood transfusions due to severe anemia. Come to find out that one of my medicines was actually exacerbating my problems. So I can either continue to take the medicine and have issues with one problem or not take the medicine and have issues because of another problem. It just seems like I can’t win.
I had a biopsy about a week and a half ago. I go for the results on Friday. I certainly hope that it isn’t the big C. Too many in my family have been taken because of that disease. I don’t want to be added to that number.
Even if it isn’t cancer, they are still planning on doing surgery to remove the issue. So I will be in the hospital for almost a week post op. Maybe more if I end up needing more blood.
I am making sure to stock up on a bunch of books to review so I have something to do during that time. Plus I won’t be really up to moving around much for about 6 weeks post op. So that is a lot of sitting still time. Which means, a lot of time to read and post.
I won’t know how soon they schedule the surgery until Friday. Hopefully, they will get me in as soon as possible. I just want to get it over with. I don’t want anymore delays. Once I have the surgery, that will be a whole host of symptoms that will be gone. That will make things a little easier.
