Look Ma, No Tumor! September 22, 2006

Filed under: Uncategorized — stefanella @ 2:26 pm

A few days ago I wrote/joked about going for medical tests in the middle of the night.

Alas, I was being coy. With so much doom and gloom on the blog front lately – dog dying, cat disappearing and re-appearing, apartment burgled, etc. – I didn’t want to go down more of the same dark tunnel.

THE TEST was actually a Cat Scan. I have a pretty virulent strain of glaucoma in one eye and my treating medical specialist was somewhat alarmed by the severity due to my relatively young age vis a vis the disease and the fact that it’s only affecting one eye.

So that’s what the fuss was all about. He ordered up a CT to ensure there was nothing adding to pressure behind the eye.

Now I will share that I was extremely nervous. And thinking about the end and all of that morose stuff.

But results are in and apparently I am tumor-free. Yahoo! Just in time for New Year. Praise the Lord (not that I’m religious or anything)

    Wow – the waiting must have been agony. Glad you’re okay (aside from a case of raging “one-eye” glaucoma, of course…). Shana tova.
