Time for a midweek update on the health situations in my family, and fortunately it’s a good one. My dad had his biopsy done and while technically the cancer is incurable, it’s highly manageable. He won’t need chemotherapy, he doesn’t have to make any big adjustments to his life, he just needs to take a prescriptive chemo-drug every day and get checked up three times a year.
It was a very encouraging update. The doctor (my parents both said that she was phenomenal) told my dad in blunt terms that he can still ski, dance at weddings, work, and just carry on like nothing has changed.
As for me, I went to an orthopedic clinic and a doctor saw me about the lump on my left shoulder. It didn’t concern him very much, since it’s soft, malleable, and not painful. He said it’s probably just a lipoma, which is a benign, fatty tumor. He recommended an MRI to be sure, but he sounded sure enough to me so I declined.
Then I got home and told my wife what the doctor said and what I did, and now I have an MRI appointment after a quick call to the office.
Happy wife, happy life, right?
On the writing side of things, I just passed 63,000 words for Creed: Mandate of Heaven this morning, and I also suddenly found the story take an unexpected turn! Funny how sometimes your villain can make an offer to your heroes which suddenly sounds reasonable…
But I won’t give anything away!
Hope you all are doing well today on this Hump Day! Thank you again for reading this blog and supporting my work!
