|Just had to do it.|
...........if you don't get a post by Friday then it's all over, finish, kaput. Well as far as I go at any rate. You see in the morning I am off to hospital for a live biopsy. Nothing to bad in that, hell I had been told of the very very slight chance of it ending with the big sleep. Thing is, this is where being a gamer really does not help, you see this very very low chance is in fact 1 in 1000 nationally and somewhat worse in my chosen hospital! You see when it's words it's great, very very low actually sounds fairly low. Now 1 in 1000 is also low, but being a wargamer I could not help myself in thinking "I could roll that!" I bet if I was a bee keeper I would have been equally happy with it being presented to me either way ;-)
So any hoots I probably already have my card marked as I went for my pre-op last week and to the question "any questions?" I could not help myself.
Ian: Just how long is the needle?
Nurse: Oh not very long
Ian: I'm worried about that then
Ian: Because he must press on really hard to get to my Liver (whilst pointing at the bit in the booklet that states I may get pain in my right side and/or tip of my right shoulder)
Nurse: It's deferred pain the needle is placed in your side.
Not a bleedin' smile to be seen, twas a hard audience that day.
So being a stat like guy here are the bookies numbers
1-10 will have a bleed (I like to think of it as 9-10 don't)
1-20 will need to stay over night
1-100 will need a transfusion
1-1000 dirt nap
Another way of thinking about it is I am sooooo more likely to be dead on Saturday than win the lottery. I can only take comfort at the fact that I don't do the bleedin' Lottery! But I did watch The Syndicate if that counts.
So chances are very good I will be home to post tomorrow night, I have at least six hours lying down to think of a post or three (yes I will be taking a notepad). But it's a fair chance I won't want to, no sir. What I will do is post something Thursday, the Lottery willing. If you don't see anything by end of Friday I am propper poorly or brown bread. The latter will be proven by one of two things, nothing being written after Friday or Lee taking over the blog. I will be sending him the log on details (had planned to allow Lee to post on the blog already for Project Waterloo) he will either jump on to update you or maybe take over running the blog if he wants to, it would be all down to Lee and as I have not actually unloaded this on him maybe it will be the last thing he wants.
So expect to see me later in the week, older but no wiser! Oh and in case your wondering it is a Liver Biopsy to see what damage my condition has done to my Liver but it's not the usual suspects Mr. Fosters and his mate Johnny Walker, just a rather annoying ability to farm the iron out of everything I eat and drink!
