Annual check up report


Well, it is official - I am now just a boring patient to my head/neck treatment team. Yep, no aliens in the brain pan or cheeks, no out-of-the-ordinary causes for the pain I experience (a small price to pay for them working so hard to save my life, as I see it). I don't see them again as a patient for a whole year - unless something out of the ordinary DOES raise its ugliness in the next 12 months. That is, of course, not allowed, nor is it included in my personal timeline. I have some bills to pay off, some money to save, lots more love to share with family, and maybe, just maybe, traveling farther than the Minnesota IKEA store in the next 12 months. Here's to all of us continuing to cast a shadow, and aiming for living the most out of the days we are given.
(Note: I took the photo at a visitor's center in Branson last month.)

How exciting to be at the phase of yearly appointments! I am scheduled for my first "routine" follow up MRI in early September. The doctor in not going to scan my lungs yet as it is still too early. Thank you for your entries on my blog. It is inspiring to have a fellow companion on this "journey". Take care, Shalil G.
