Supercalifragilistic...

...hemochromatosis.
If you have it and ignore, you might just get cirrhosis.
If I hear it oft enough, I know I'll have neurosis.
Supercalifragilistic hemochromatosis!
 
The latest chapter in my Old Egg saga.  I won't bore you with the details...if I haven't already.  I just want to ask for prayers and positive thoughts on Wednesday, when I will be having minor surgery.  The phlebotomy treatment for the hemochromatosis is not working out so well, so I'm having a portacath implanted so that it can be used for removing blood rather than constantly fighting to find a vein.
 
And since I had to stop my blood thinners (taken for yet another Old Egg malady) leading up to the surgery, I get to inject myself in the stomach twice a day instead till it's all over!  Yippee!

I had to do quite the internet image search to find a photo of an attractive abdomen being injected.  Most of the photos I found looked much more like mine...doughy and flabby!  I just couldn't subject you all to that.  :)

  2. Did I miss your birthday? Well, please accept my belated wishes for a great year!
    I'm sorry to hear about your health issues---I know my daughter has many chronic health issues and a blood clotting disorder discovered in her last (5th)-- VERY LAST pregnancy! She had to have those shots everyday and this is a girl who was always needle phobic!
    Now I have to ask about Old Egg malady?????
    Prayers for some relief and healing for you!
    Hugs,
    V
