Well, I had another week/weekend filled with distraction, but the Christmas stuff is almost put away, and the colonoscopy went well. There is no cancer there. My oncologist had recommended I get checked sooner than the usual 10 years on account of the endometrial cancer.
And this time, after the screening, my gastroenterologist recommended a recheck in 5 to 7 years, which is actually the period of time he considers the longest anyone should wait between screenings, even if Medicare doesn’t agree…
Anyway, I have an eye appointment next week, as well as a trip across town to pick up a sunglasses clip that was inadvertently not included with my new glasses when I went to get them… and then maybe… just maybe… I’ll be appointment-free for a while and able to get back to some semblance of regular work on this book.
So far it seems to have been a veritable magnet for distraction.
I know. I’ve said that before. But surely at some point I’ll be left alone to get the work done, right? Right?
