There was something about this diagnosis that didn't stack up and in a follow-up meeting with my own Doc, I persuaded him to send me to a specialist for more tests.
This test finally happened yesterday. He found a problem: something was putting pressure on my Pulmonary Artery constricting flow. The specialist (cardiologist) was a real star and arranged for CAT scan first thing this morning and then after we had discussed results he rang around his network to find an appropriate specialist to pass me onto to. Its Christmas time and most are on are leave but he arranged for me to be admitted to North Shore Hospital.
So here I am.. getting quite use to this place. All three boys were born here and both my mum and dad have had their share of visits. Stuck with needles - waiting for next test.. scheduled for biopsy tomorrow.
I'm pretty good spirits - Que sera sera. Whatever happens next I'll be up for some radiotherapy for quite some time... Only 10 checkins before I become Foursquare mayor of North Shore Hospital.
