Baby Aspirin, Turkey & the Calendar

Posted Jun 27 2008 4:09pm


Interesting to note how you note the years passing....now I can do it by paying attention to when I run out of a bottle of lo-dose baby aspirin, recommended for cardiac health, just around Thanksgiving each year So, another 365 tiny hazy yellow baby aspirins go by..... maybe I can just do 'em all washed down with some tasty cranberry sauce.

Heading down to San Diego for a short vacation with the family ....looking forward to it, but it brings me back to the time a year ago just before getting a diagnosis. Had my chain yanked but good then....all kinds of tests till they found something: cervical spinal stenosis - narrowing of the spinal column in the neck.

I was euphoric! No 'freakin PD - now all I had to do was get on the list for one of those amazing new neck transplants you see on the science shows and home free! Alas, twas not to be...

Neurosurgeon looked me over- nothing there causative of my symptoms. Instead, I get BOTH prizes....hard hit at the time, even harder due to the window of unfounded optimism.



Mortality sucks, but it does make for compelling drama...



I dunno...gonna try to enjoy each moment as it comes.

Happy Thanksgiving!
