This will be the last time I will be posting about my health, but might as well get it out there.
Getting healthy. Have my strength back (working on my stamina). Health issues I was having relating to the cancer removed on Feb 12th disappeared almost immediately after the operation.
At least two more operations depending on how chemo goes. Stage 1 spot on lower left lung (haven't smoked in 45 years and not that type of cancer) and issue with left kidney. Doctor seems to think it's the left kidney that is generating the cancer . But all seem to be manageable, will just take time.
Had an issue on Mar 7. Blood clots in the lungs. In the hospital for a few days. Don't know how long I had the clots as it took about three weeks for the pain from the incision to go away and wasn't sure what was going on. Checked into the emergency room. After a CAT scan they handed me a handful of aspirin and then started treatment. On Xarelto.
Two more weeks before I can start exerting myself (lift a gun or shovel snow) as when they went in, they left me with an 18 inch incision and all that goes with it.
Thinking about what regional shoots I can attend with camera in the upcoming months. Don't know if I can return to serious shooting until next year, just have to see how it goes in regard to chemo and future operations.
Anyway, if you don't see a web update after 8am EST I'm either at an early morning doctors appointment or visiting the hospital.
