A year has come and gone since my DX date. There are still things I am coming to terms with. Like fertility issues. But a lot of good and change has come about in my life. I cannot do gastric bypass clinic for 5 years or donate blood but in five years I have been cleared for the surgery. I was admittedly upset about the set back but I have been working hard. It means a free gastric bypass in a few years.
The possible removal of a benign tumour on my arm is coming up. It has gotten huge, about the size of an egg and is starting to make typing grueling.
I have my nephews, sister in law and inlaws all moving here. I took my nephews to scouts for the first time. Iain took pictures of them doing there pledge. I have a new puppy coming into my house, and with that a new healthy budding relationship with my mother.
Work has been full of new projects and doing a bunch of events. This summer I went to the beer and barbeque fest and two comic cons. We are sponsoring the london knights and a local radio station. Plus the company is growing really quickly. It is exciting to no longer be just a customer service agent, but work for the actual company.
I saw Dr. V on the 28th of October and I am now 1 year between my appointments. My pain is being treated by gabapentin successfully. Things are definitely getting better. The only really huge thing is I don't have a functional water heater. So it has been 5 months of cold water only. But I have my life and my health so the things that used to be a huge deal (MM thank you for your wisedom) are not big deals and health matters.
How are you warriors?
