Update on Medical Stuff
« on: June 05, 2016, 12:58:49 AM »
If you're keeping track, in the last two months I have had two hearing aids installed, cataract surgery on both eyes and a subsequent YAG capsulotomy on both eyes. In the middle of this, something popped out of my face that was growing and gross. So, like almost any man I know, I pulled it off my face.

5 hours later in the ER they were finally able to stop the blood pouring out from my chin - nothing I had tried did anything to even slow the bleeding. Turns out, it had to be finally "scoped and burned" at my dermatologist...after the ER doc (and I quote) "burned the bejesus out of it."

I was reminded of that line from "Apocalypse Now" --- "I love the smell of napalm in the morning, it smells like victory." What reminded me of it was the wisps of smoke curling above my head and the smell of burnt flesh at the ER.

So - final eye test this coming week. Looking pretty good. With the new hearing aids I can now hear a fly squat from across the room. More importantly, I can hear my wife telling me to take the garbage out.

Tough journey, but a lot less tougher than many others. I pray for our brave servicemen and women who struggle with loss of limbs, loss of basic functionality,and, in in too many cases, loss of their minds. They're the ones who really deserve our thought and prayers.

So...looking like good outcomes here and should be back on track here in a jiffy. Cheers - MM

Hey Edgar,

Wow, sounds like you've had a lot going on.  Glad to hear everything is headed up!
