Medical Update

I made my first trip to the CLSC (centre local de services communautaires) yesterday since my last visit 11 months ago. Dr. Atkins at the Multiple Myeloma Clinic has put me back on a monthly IV drip of pamidronate. The drug is used by myeloma patients to strengthen their bones. So I've now begun monthly applications. While there Helene, my cancer nurse, drew blood and will pass along the results to both Dr. Atkins and my GP, Dr. Granger.

I'm still waiting to hear from the province on the reinstatement of my driver's license. Dr. Granger filled in the appropriate form and sent it off 3 weeks ago. I called the SAAQ (Quebec's license bureau) yesterday and they told me they were still considering my application for reinstatement. Funny, they were awfully quick to act when they took my license away last August.

We were in Toronto last weekend for a quick visit with Jim and Lucille. We had a wonderful dinner Saturday night at a place called Miller's Tavern, preceeded by a little shopping when I bought some books and CDs. Should be set for a little while now.

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...
