I have been remiss is posting after updating that I have a new part to my body. Here's what happened....
Friday, June 7th, I was going about my morning getting ready to introduce myself to a local corporation and a Social Media Summer campaign I conceived for them.Beautiful day, moderate temperature...all looked good. Then the pain started.....
It was in my back and felt EXACTLY like the pain I had when I experienced my real heart atack back in 2009, and got a stent put in. After it hit a certain level, I went to the nearest E.R. and was checked in immediately.
It was determine pretty quickly that odds were this was NOT a cardiac event. Thus, the CAT Scan and X-Ray were ordered. It was at that point, they discovered I had an infection in the upper part of my right lung, with a bonus feature of a "Mass" behind that. Said item's nature still undetermined. They loaded me up with 2 Broad Spectrum I.V. anti-biotics and sent me on my way. They wanted me to stay for tests and all, but I said no. It was late in the day on a Friday, thus nothing would be done except run up the bill, until Monday. So, back to the van for moi.
I see my pulmonary guy this coming Thursday. At that point I'll know if a biopsy will be performed, or just more anti-biotics. We'll see....
Now I am of the nature to give nick names to things. People, devices, stuff. For example I called my Food Saver appliance the Vac-U-Suck. You get the idea.
I was at a loss of what to call my mass, until I was finally able to view the X-Ray on my computer, and it all came into focus.
Mickey Mass! Whoda' thought!
(This is REALLY my X-Ray! You can see the date in the lower right side of image)
Immediately I had the theme for "The Mickey Mouse Club" being all earwormish in my head and new lyrics came about. Before I show you those, a frame of reference is called for those too young to recall the ORIGINAL M.M.C. and not the creepy one in the 90's. Presented for your enjoyment.....
SIDETRACK: I found this FULL COLOR version I never knew existed before. Only ever saw the show in Black and White.
So I came up with this. Know it's a Work In Progress.
Who's the one, lives in your lung
and makes it hard to breathe
M I C...K E Y...MA-SS, that's he! (Sung EmmA-SS)
Hey There, Hi There, Hack There
I can hear you wheeze.
M I C...K E Y...MA-SS, that's he!
Forever keep your platelet levels high
High, HIgh, HIGH...
You get the idea.
Anyhow...in limbo and seeing what happens. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers.
Until next time.......
