At the Hematologist

“What’s your problem?”
“Oh, uh, I have a blood clot in my leg.”
“Really? Wow. What were the symptoms?”
“It hurt, turned blue, and doubled in size.”
“Oh, well, you’re pretty.”

This conversation took place between the lady next to me and myself while I was waiting for some blood to be drawn at the hematologist today. I was sitting in a room full of people waiting for blood draws and I was the youngest by at least 30 years. In all, it was a good visit. The doctor does not think that a surgery would be helpful, which was good news. I am going for a Doppler study (ultrasound of my leg) tomorrow. The doctor also wanted to run some more tests to see if I have other clotting disorders. We will go back in two weeks to further discuss a treatment plan.

I’ll post some more pictures soon.

In the future, I will know that third-party disclosures are not capable of cross-examining the martial artists skills of one dubbed "Awesome." His rage was not-so-much inexplicable as it was, in retrospect, lamentably forseeable.
Live and learn.
I shall drop off the book at some point after Saturday. The only condition is that you explain it to me as best you can.
