It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

Every year my daughters ask me what I want for Christmas and every year I answer “Peace on earth”. If you think about it if you have your health, happiness and if you are surrounded by your friends, family and loved ones… what else do you need as you celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. This week I find out how I am doing with the health part.
12/12/11 – I went for my scans today. There has been a change how the barium sulfate contrast is given to us before a scan. For my past scans I would start drinking it the night before and finish it about 90 prior to the scan. Now we have to get to the Radiology office 2 hours before the scan and drink all the contrast there. It is certainly not as convenient but I am sure there was a good reason for this change.
12/16/11 – I met with Dr. Goy today and he gave me the excellent news that my scans were all clear. Now that is certainly a fantastic early Christmas present.  I am now looking forward to a great Christmas with my friends, family and loved ones. I wonder if I will also get the “Peace on Earth” I asked for?
As many of us are shopping and rushing about to get ready for the Holiday we often lose sight of the real meaning of Christmas. Here is a link to a song on YouTube that reminds us what Christmas is all about:
I continue to be on a checkup schedule of every 6 months. My next scan is scheduled for June 11th and my follow-up appointment with Dr. Goy is on June 15th.
My next posting will be in June after I get my scan results.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to All
More to come…
