The Liver Chronicles...A Health Update

I get sometimes a dozen emails a day asking, "How are you?"

So...here is how I be.

On Sept. 9th I report for an MRI to see how many if any tumors we have killed. I need two and I immediately qualify for transplant BUT...keep in mind people die on these lists which is why being an organ donor is so important. Please consider it.

On Aug. 14th I report for an ultrasound on my neck. They are being evasive. I know there is a mass and they know it but imaging doesn't seem to be conclusive or they don't want to over load me and I can dig it. Remember nothing is promised or guaranteed with any of this. I live under that pressure each day.

I am still writing and it is difficult when you feel like you are waiting on your autopsy report to come back. I am tired, cranky and a bit depressed but I am still swinging for the fences as usual.

I am trying to close out my medical fund by 9/1/14 as I will be incredibly busy and I hope to be able to "limp through" until disability kicks in some time around Thanksgiving. Your help is still welcome and very much needed.

Saying thank you simply is not adequate but it is all I have at the moment. I appreciate it more than I can express.

 
The last 4 years have been a wild ride. I have lost a lot of friends but made better ones. It happens.
