The waiting game

First and foremost: thanks to everyone who has wished me well, in the comments to the last post, in-world, or by email.

Here’s the latest:

Last Thursday I had a CT scan “from guggle to zatch”, in the words of Thurber’s The 13 Clocks. It was meant to reveal if the spot on my brain, discovered a week prior in an MRI, was a lone wolf or an outlier.

There’s a spot on my lung, too.

Good news is: no Brain Salad Surgery. They’ll zap that one with collimated gamma rays. Before that, however, there’ll be a needle biopsy of the invader in my lung, and plans made to deal with it.

None of this is scheduled; I’ve only known about it for four hours. The requisite specialists will call me to set up appointments. Hence, the waiting game.

I’ll keep you posted.

Lalo makes an ideal patient: MDs can talk up to him! Thanks, all.

You had promised to diagnose the problem before you got sick. My sweetheart, you lived only weeks after this post. I hope you were letting me know you love me, too, from wherever you are. For always, e
