Medical update

We spent Wednesday & Thursday at Mayo. The first day was for tests & scans, the second to meet with doctors. We also had a pleasant lunch with Doug McGill.

The quick summary is that scans & blood tests showed no signs of returning lymphoma. With each clean scan, the odds of it returning decrease.

Further, some blood values improved and others held steady. Bone marrow is still slow to recover but nothing scary in this department. And there are some liver concerns to be monitored for the year.

While I feel pretty good overall, I’m likely to have some fatigue issues throughout this year, if not longer. Not recovering as quickly or fully as I’d like, but well enough to live with it 😉

    Thank you all for responding. Sorry to keep bringing up the medical stuff, but I figure good news is worth sharing. Generally, hopefully, I won’t be giving many medical reports this year.

    Looks like recovery will, at least, take up all of 2012, which isn’t as quick as I’d like. However, it’s easy to think of worse scenarios. That I must be careful about certain things — rest, diet, over-work, sleep — is by no means a bad thing. Nature/Dhamma helps us learn one way or another.

    And, may I dare say, two decades of over-involvement in computers may be relaxing, not by willpower as much as by shifting of causes & conditions, some intentional and some not.

    Smiles & hugs.
