Well, we’ve just started the new year and I already have medical adventures to report for the year.

First, this past Friday my cardiologist finally reviewed my ultrasound and relayed through an assistant that my blood clots seem to have finally disappeared. So, not only do I no longer have to worry about a heart or lung embolism, not to mention a stroke, but I have come off the blood thinners. Yea! I can actually feel the difference already.

Secondly, I have the first of four scans coming up next month. Specifically, Thursday, March 13th, I’m scheduled for a CAT scan. And, I have three more after that this year, so there will be plenty of radioactive material to drink. Not to mention the barium enemas!

And, finally, in non-medical news, but just as sad…
I’m on the verge of becoming a celibate monk. No, really. Match.com was nice and all, but there were too many easy ways to rule myself out before even approaching someone. And, sadly, the reverse was true, too. I can’t seem to meet single women who aren’t off limits, for one reason or another, at church. Married women show up all the damn time, but single? Not so much.
So, unless, gentle readers, you have been hiding all your single, female, not-crazy friends, dating seems like a bleak wasteland to me. No, more like a bleak post-Apocalyptic, Australian landscape filled with ravenous hordes of zombies. Well, perhaps not quite that bad, but damn close.
Ah, well, there’s always eHarmony!
