I will not write my feelings about the “news” and President Trump. I will not write my feelings about what I fear of the future of our country. But one thing I’ve learned lately is: feelings aren’t facts. I wish the fake news networks knew this!
That phrase helps me immensely, especially when it comes to my medical status. I have a growth (tumor?) on my tongue and have a visit with the ENT this week. These growths aren’t new; that’s the whole Cowden Syndrome thing in a nutshell. Without going into too much gritty detail I have seen an ENT before about these things, and he told me I would have to go to the O.R. to have them removed. I am scared. I am terrified, to be very honest. I don’t want any more visits to the O.R. I have to center my attention and energy on what I do know. And in fact, I don’t know anything today. Maybe he can snip it right off?
This new growth is large, again new, and here’s what I find most peculiar about this entire thing: when I was 2 years old I had surgery to remove a “growth” on my gigantic tonsils. My mom just told me the thing on my tongue now looks almost identical to what was on my tonsil over 40 years ago.
Of course not.
