I left work yesterday telling my co-workers I was going to “spin the wheel” again at my oncologist’s office. The wheel appears to have stopped once more on, “stable.” I tell everyone that I would be happy to remain stable for the rest of my life. I won’t get tired of that word, stable, I hope you don’t mind my repeating it. Thank you for your prayers.
The blood draw yesterday was easier, but held much less hilarity than the last. I posted about that one on Face Book. I never laughed so much giving blood. The current test results that were available right away showed no notable change. The results for the test that really tells what’s going on will not be available for a few days.
During the exam, the doc asked if I was experiencing any pain or numbness, or anything unusual. I told her that next time I see my urologist; I was going to ask him about my belly button. It’s been “weird” since the prostate surgery. There’s a little skin bubble where the button used to be. She took a look and said it’s herniated. She said it won’t be a problem unless some “bowel” gets into it (or, unless a head with slime dripping fangs pops out of it). I wondered out loud about the rare opportunity to incorporate that little bubble into a three dimensional tattoo; an eyeball tattoo would be perfect there!
