Besides my usual projects, PH management and personal covid mitigation in red, red town of deniers, I’m awash in a series of what I hope will turn out to minor medical annoyances. A summer ER visit (not my idea) and CT for possible TIA led to an MRI that showed no damage but turned up bone marrow lesions in my skull. That led to another CT to check for BLMs elsewhere, found none but turned up a blood clot in my lungs and a mystery mass in my pelvic region. On blood thinner now and pursuing the mystery. Another MRI for that was not as useful as it should have been, so I’m off to an Orthopedic Oncologist in Denver in about a week. Amidst all this, I had a surgical procedure to remove growths from back (probably benign) and leg (probably not). Perhaps I should be worried but am mostly annoyed by tiresome and tiring extras. I’ll keep you posted.
@vanessavaile you have been on my mind as well. I hope questions are getting answered and treatment in place. When you have a chance I (and I’m sure others too) would love to get that low sodium gumbo recipe you mentioned to me.
