A little emo for the day...
That said, today I am making an exception because I have news. Many of you are aware that I have, for some months now, been dealing with a bizarre medical issue. I mentioned it last about two months ago when I had my most recent surgery. This was surgery that went about as bad as it could without crossing over into BAD, if you get my meaning. It was successful but rather longer and more unpleasant than anticipated. Following that procedure the doctor informed me that the problem was solved... but then, he had told me that before. My particular problem has proven to be quite tenacious despite all expectations.
It was, therefore, with a certain amount of concern that I went back into the hospital recently for the battery of tests* that were intended to determine whether or not the problem had, really and truly, been fixed. Improbably, the answer appears to be yes. For the first time in quite a while my chances of suffering certain sorts of very dangerous medical issues are no greater than anyone else of my sex, age, and fitness level. My sojourn into modern medicine appears, at least for the time being, to be at an end.
And I just wanted to tell y'all about it. Hope you don't mind.
* Seriously, I've had enough radiation shot into me in the last 12 months to grant me super powers.
