It’s been a long time since I posted. I’m bad at it, but today some Grade A bullshit is going on, which is going to get in the way of a lot of stuff.

Back in March, I had some routine bloodwork done. Some of the numbers came back a tad elevated, but like, within a range that was not concerning. Doctor actually said it’s what he expects to see from someone with a cold, so that’s fine. Whatever. Everything else was fine, so it didn’t warrant really looking into further.

Last week, I had an appointment with another doctor, concerning what seemed like a cyst. Nothing serious, but worth looking at, and potentially having removed.

Welp, doctor thought there was something odd about it, and ordered a more comprehensive blood panel. And those numbers that were a bit funny, but not concerning in March came back much higher today. Certain words have not yet been utttered, but I have an ultrasound and a biopsy scheduled soon. At that point, we’ll know what we’re actually dealing with, but I’m not optimistic.

Right before the bloodwork got in, I got a call from the surgery scheduler person at the clinic, and I’m on the books for next month. They apparently do it before they know, that way if the results do come back as what they expect, they can get you in faster. But there is a certain irony in that I was prepared to fight the insurance company over this, and now it’s looking like a matter of medical necessity.

So, that’s what I’ve been dealing with the last couple of weeks. I’ve been getting things in order today, knowing I’m not going to have the brain capacity to deal with them when they come up later this month and next. Ugh
