The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly-all sorts of bad and ugly...
« on: December 20, 2019, 12:02:23 AM »
Test results are back and it's bone cancer. Oddly enough, it is in several places, but it's not stage 4. The doctor thinks it may be the earliest it's been caught on someone, and that was only because I was getting my yearly PET scan. So, he is not concerned, but he is curious about it. He is running more tests (took more blood today) and may have me come back and take some more samples (oh, joy), but he is convinced it can be defeated. Also, the treatment is a series of pills and some shots, but chemotherapy is not part of it.

Ah jeez. On the other hand glad to hear you get to dodge the chemo bullet at least.

Windows 10 no longer supports my graphics tablet. Isn't that sweet.

Well, the good part is that I am officially still prostate cancer free, however the multiple myeloma is here to stay. However, it is exhibiting few of the symptoms is is supposed to, probably because it really is the earliest it has ever been caught. They aren't even sure what stage it is, but it is not very late. I don't have anemia, massive numbers of white cells, and am not urinating protein like crazy. And it isn't curable, but it is treatable.

I'd just as soon have avoided all this.

And my heater is out again. Lenore is not happy, and I can probably look to a bad performance review. Of course, this is the coldest weather we have had so far.

... and now Windows is randomly crashing my graphics card. It hasn't supported it for months, and I've been using some REALLY old drivers. I guess now it's getting its revenge.

It's been a long year.

Bah!  That stinks, DG!  I'm sorry man.  I'm glad that the dryer thing turned out to be simple.  Ha, if only all problems were so easily solved.  As always, you're in our prayers and thoughts, my friend.
God Bless
