Update on Health
Today I had an upper endoscopy, a further test to determine why I have anemia. There was no pathology and I am relieved. I am inclined not to worry until I have to but Ed was worried and Sol was worried, and that fear rubs off on me. So I had to shake it off. I wondered If I would have a sore throat afterward, which can happen, but I didn’t. No after effects whatever. Whew. When I was in the hospital in early October I had an iron drip and that brought me back to normal, so I am due to have more blood drawn later this month to see if the anemia remains. If it does, they’ll have to look elsewhere.
Both procedures were short and I woke up alert and rarin’ to go. They kept restraining me, absolutely certain I would keel over if not supported. I kept saying that "ain't gonna happen". Scott, the cute nurse I liked checked me out of the facility.
The only discomfort I had was sitting in the waiting room (we were early) in a temp I was sure was about 50 degrees. They gave me a heated "blanket". I said, you do know this is a sheet?
I don’t seem to be able to rest after these events. I just want to get on the computer and deal with my e mail and use the treadmill and call my friends who want to know the results. So I did all that and I tried to lay down, but the phone kept ringing.
