Medical Update

Well, finally had my General Hospital clinic appointment this afternoon, subsequent to December 7. I'm now officially an out-patient of the Multiple Myeloma Clinic, transferred from the Bone Marrow Transplant Clinic. This is definately a positive development.

And I'm doing so well, I don't go back to the clinic for 6 weeks. The doctor is very pleased with my progress: my colour, test results and weight - re: the latter saying I must have had a good Christmas (now at 190 lbs, a full 20 additional lbs since the bone marrow transplant).

Indeed, after 3 months, I'm at a stage of my recovery - practically complete - that on average usually takes 4-6 months. Next up, the General will arrange with the Aylmer CLSC for monthly blood work and an IV of pamidronate so as to help protect my bones.

So I'm happy. I better start my walking program soon and keep the weight off!

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.

Times Are So Tough...
