I don’t recall if I have said what I am dealing with. It’s a rare form of Leukemia. It does not kill you, but it makes you susceptible to infections that can kill you. I have survived an 11-day hospitalization with a staph infection and a three stay for pneumonia. Enough of that. I stay away from people, wear a mask to grocery shop, wash my hands all day, etc.
My treatment is working according to the doc and my “blood numbers” are improving marginally. Some days I feel almost normal. I am still months away my immune system being able to keep infections at bay and having enough red blood cells to carry enough oxygen so I can function in a normal manner.
Now we have another health crisis. Bacall will have a triple bypass Monday. She has several blockages, two of 90%. The cardiologist and surgeon are both top-rated and predict an excellent outcome. She will be in the hospital for five days so I will be on my own next week. I don’t have the energy to make long visits to her so it will be a long week for both of us.
Dr Kwan is on-call whenever the President (whoever he is) is traveling in the southeast US, including his trips to Mir-O-Mar in Florida. There’s an executive jet on standby at Maxwell ready to take him wherever needed.
