This morning, while sitting in the office of one of my wife's many doctors my phone rang. It was a job offer from a local hospital. On Nov. 12th I am tentatively scheduled to start a new career as a hospital health system driver/courier. I just need to pass the Drug testing and a Physical. It's only a per diem position but it is a "foot in the door" making me potentially available to fill a future part or full time position. They tend to hire and promote from within. I won't be commuting to this job, but I also won't be working 12.5 hr. rotating shifts!
This afternoon while leaving my doctor's office with my innoculation records in hand, I stopped and sat on a bench to wait out a downpour. As I sat there my phone rang yet again. My Urologist was calling with the biopsy results. No cancer detected. That's two sets of 12 cores in a twenty month period that have been clean. We're going to become good freinds as he intends to keep a close watch over me for the forseeable future!
I've been back on my self prescribed regimine of ibuprofin for two days now and I'm thrilled to report that I once again have a functioning body. I can easily go up and down stairs, walk briskly, raise my arms to my face and higher, and intend to commute to work on my final day tomorrow.
Are my issues resolved? Hell no!!! Is there a light at the end of the tunnel? Well, there's a definate glimmer of something. Perhaps it's a mix of hope and confidence. But then again, it could just be a train.....
