Earlier this week, I had a test/procedure done both to confirm one diagnosis and to rule out two other possibilities. It required some preparation, which may have had an unfortunate consequence.
That said, I’m happy to report that all of the samples collected came back negative for cancer. The original diagnosis was confirmed and while a pain (literal as well as figurative), it beats the alternative.
The prep, however, may have caused an issue or two on the cardiac side. We are monitoring, hoping that what is going on is temporary, and that nothing else is trying to rear its head. Since being hit by lightning, its seemed like my health was a descending quantum cascade with anything that had the possibility of going wrong was doing so. It is a huge relief to find out that in every area we’ve tested, I am at least clear of cancer.
I want to thank everyone who has donated to my fundraiser, and special thanks to the recent series of anonymous donors who have taken a huge weight off my shoulders with their generosity. I’m almost clear medically to move, now need to get enough to rent a place and get moved. Thank you all so very much for your support, prayers, and messages of encouragement!
If you would like to help me in my recovery efforts, feel free to hit the tip jar in the upper right or the fundraiser at A New Life on GiveSendGo. Getting hit by lightning is not fun, and it is thanks to your help and prayers that I am still going. Thank you.
