Blood Work.

Bloodwork I went and got my blood work done and they took 4 vials. I asked what they were testing and it’s the usual: potassium and liver enzymes, just as I’d figured. The technician also said her friend is saving up and planning on moving to Jamaica when she’s 50 and that she’s married to a Jamaican so there’s someone else out there like me too that doesn’t like it here and plans to move to the Caribbean! Earlier in the day the doc’s office also called and informed me I have an abdomenal scan on a Saturday over the Thanksgiving weekend in less than 2 weeks and it seemed so urgent, all of a sudden, out of nowhere, getting it so quickly( usually it takes weeks, or even months) and on a weekend, and a *holiday* weekend, no less, and I wondered what showed up on my last blood test to warrant it? Did some sort of tumour marker show up or something indicating cancer?Do they suspect I have liver cancer? Maybe that’s what my stomach area’s so fat; maybe my liver’s enlarged or it’s fluid due to cancer?

It’s been months since I had my last scan, which showed an enlarged liver bile duct(which would be consistent with the elevated liver enzymes in the blood work last time), which are caused by some sort of obstruction, usually gallstones but I know it’s not in my case since I had my gallbladder removed 3 YRS ago, so maybe it still COULD be a tumour…what else could be blocking the flow of bile? Or could it be something as simple as a thick band of scar tissue from the surgery, maybe? When I went for the blood work I asked the secretary to check my file and see why the scan was ordered so she did but it didn’t say so she went and asked the doctor and he just said he was reviewing my files and it’s just a follow-up to the last scan, so that’s a relief, and I can’t have anything to eat or drink 6 HRS before and the test’s at 10 am. It will be interesting to see if anything’s changed though; if it’s still enlarged or has resolved.

As well,I thought I’d slept in late and that it was 8 am so I jumped out of bed in a panic and ran downstairs but when I got down and saw the microwave clock it was only 7 am, and when I was walking Buddy a lady pulled over to the curb in her van to admire him; everyone loves Buddy, even perfect strangers, yet my hubby and the 8 YR old were hassling me about him again and being mean; stomping on the ground and saying they were stomping on his face, head,and back, and when they say things like that about him it’s like they’re saying it to ME because I love him and it’s really hurtful. They’re so mean. My family sucks. The 17 YR old says most of the kids he started off with at Cadets at age 12 are selling drugs now and slutty and have had babies already and that most people here in this shit-hole town ARE white trash rednecks and losers and the schools here are bad, and that it’s really easy to find drugs here.

I also heard that some gay guys put gerbils( which I used to have as pets as a kid so I find this particularly disturbing) up their arse, and I don’t know if it’s actually true or not or just a myth but I’ve always wondered HOW exactly they get them UP there, I mean, how do you entice a rodent to burrow up such a small, puckered up little hole,anyway? Do you shove a sunflower seed up and let it burrow in, or insert a hollow tube or some sort(kind of like a Habitrail?)and let in run thru? Wouldn’t it rip your rectum to shreds though too with it’s sharp claws and gnaw thru with those sharp teeth? I don’t really believe it…
