This & That Including What Ails

My Challenges Never Cease To Amaze Me

on October 31, 2021

A routine health screen has returned with mailed results that say, changes were noticed and that I was required to be at the National Cancer Center. I was to be there within 2 weeks of the letter.

Hmm….changes? Am I morphing into a Vampire or an Alien? Is this timely for Halloween since today everyone in USA celebrates Halloween!

Scared? A little bit but I am resigned to fate and if it means more surgeries, then what can I do?

I cannot protest.

I can only hope it is a normal abnormal change and that I need not undergo a slew of treatments or whatever.

I also have noticed that my autoimmune disease is progressing…It seems now I have difficulty swallowing food. I almost choked to death some nights back when I was taking my meds and found the meds stuck to the lining of my throat. Water did not dislodge it, despite me trying hard to wash it down. I had to let the meds dissolve on its own and it was very very uncomfortable as the bitterness of the meds alongside with the constant coughing and discomfort was there.

So, does it mean that my salivary glands are completely shot! I knew some of the salivary glands were not working but this is, I think the biggest of it all as it is for the throat!

I know I have been very stressed of late, dealing with issues of my parents.

Mum had her 2nd covid jab and thankfully it was non-eventful, unlike the first one that drove her blood pressure sky high. The moronic doctor whom I had to drag out to the covid-19 injection room by his feet was a royal pain in the incompetent zone. He did not agree with me that the cause of the high BP was due to covax. He does not understand correlation and observation. Instead he rail roaded me with his medical diagnosis of my mum have both kidney and heart failures!

Silly asinine twit really. My mum is fine. At least till when Pfizer Covax coursed through her and the results were immediate with 5 minutes of that 30 minute observation.

I was so cross that I gave my views to the relevant people and suddenly everyone realises there is a problem there!

So, what’s next is that I will have to try and find time to see the oncologist and do more tests to determine if I am going to be at death’s door or what’s next?!

I have a chockful schedule with medical appointments for both my parents and I have to try and eke to face my own issues.

I wonder if it will all be just a scare and that I am fine?

I can only pray.

If it is proven a genuine case then I need to face it and overcome or succumb as they say. Heads or tails?

Who wins?

Who loses?

Only Grim Reaper knows if I am on his list.

Garrrrrfield where are you????? I need a hug!
