Medical Week From Hell

It's the Labour Day weekend Monday here in Canada, so I'm off work today.

This is going to be a very long week, as the doctor has finally decided to start to figure out what's wrong with my neck and throat in earnest. I've got appointments for various tests for the rest of the week, which is going to wreak havoc for me at work. Fortunately, my boss is understanding about this, but still...

Anyway, I'm going into the hospital this afternoon for an appointment to have a CT scan done of the region. Tuesday, I'm going to a small clinic that specialises in them to have an ultrasound done of the same part of my body. Wednesday sees me having my five-month check-up at the Diabetes Clinic, and I'm not looking forward to that, as I have to wonder what this new doctor will think about stuff, and whether he'll want to put me on insulin now. Thursday, I have an appointment to see the regular doctor, Doctor Quack as he's now know here on the blog. Hopefully, some of the tests that he's had me undergo will be done and he'll have some results, but I doubt it. Finally, Friday sees me back at the hospital for another bone density test, and possibly a bone biopsy (if the doctor decides he wants that added when I see him on Thursday).

Like I said to someone late yesterday, the Medical Week from Hell.

It's the start of the month of September (relatively speaking), reading-wise, so as is my standard usage of my blog space at or near the beginning of the month, I present the listing of my August reads.

*****

August, 2012 was actually a pretty good month of reading on my part, given that I went to GenCon Indy mid-way through the month and didn't do a lot of reading there as I'd expected to do. I was also pleased that there was a good amount of new/newer books read from my reading queue, rather than a lot of re-reads which is my want at times.

Overall, I managed to read 7 novels, 1 RPG and RPG products, 3 magazines, 0 comics, and 0 graphic novels in August. This brings the 2012 year totals up to the following: 60 books, 17 RPGs and RPG products, 13 magazines, 527 comics, and 0 graphic novels.

Anyway, thoughts and comments are always welcome. :)

I'm Back

Came home from the hospital about 20 or so minutes ago.

I'm feeling somewhat tired and a bit sick from the dye that they injected into me, and the slight sedative.

Going to lie down and take a bit of a nap, and then see how the rest of the afternoon (or what's left of it) and evening go.
