Well........this kinda sucks

Postby Martolod » Thu Aug 10, 2017 2:22 pm

hi guys
it has been a few weeks since i have been on the Forum ....and things have become somewhat interesting :shock:
For those who are not in the know through Facebook....

about 3 weeks ago i was bitten by a spider; that simple event set in motion or rather , uncovered , a chain of events that i am part of as an unwilling and ,for that matter , unaware , participant.
As things went , the bite site became necrotised and required antibiotics to treat. 2 subsequent hospital visits because of chest pain and breathing difficulties discovered Pulmonary Embolisms by the dozen in my both lungs and got a prescription of Blood thinners .
The following Day a third visit to another emergency room found DVT in both calves and got me admitted to hospital.Meanwhile the spider bite is still festering. So after just after getting admitted my Stomach and bowels let loose vomiting and discharging blood. I lost half my Heamoglobin level in less than 6 hours , so endoscopy and Laparoscopy are ordered for the next day once i'm Stable. and still the Spider bite is festering, but being treated well with antibiotics.
So the procedure is done. and the Spider bite , that had turned into a Carbunkle is clean,although it will need some further surgery after a few days to finally get rid of all the necrotic tissue-but all is sweet .
BUT.....always a 'but'......the Endoscopy has discovered that i have a Stage 4 inoperable Adenocancer of the Stomach and the cancer has started to spread into the perineum and adjacent structures, with the prognosis being that i will be occupying a little brass Urn somewhat sooner than i had anticipated :-|
Having said that....i will continue to stick my head into the forum and moderate as i am able for as long as i am around.And i might post a picture or two..... :thumbup:

so cheer up guys.....not quite dead yet. :lol:

No, it doesn't kinda suck. It sucks. I hope that I will have your clarity and courage as I confront the high dive I'll have to take someday.
With best wishes,
Mike

That totally sucks. Like from the frying pan to the fire sucks. I don't know what else to say, Kalle, but it has been great knowing you through this forum. I'll be awaiting further missives from you.

All the best,

PF

I have his clarity I saw 2 go to Dementia and many to self destruction. I know this may seem odd vut record it on film and keep recording other things on film.
