I am finding it a very valuable resource when my brain won't remember facts from past illnesses. You know how the dr. makes you fill out all those forms when you go see him!!
Well, the little notebook got full. So, I went to the store. Bought a thicker notebook and sat down to copy all that info into the new book.
Lordy mercy. It's just amazing to see what you've lived through when it is there in black and white.
Take 2002 for instance. My entries started out that year with doing pre-op to get a knee replacement.
Seems I had lost 50% of my red blood cells. Now how does a person do that and not know it?
And, how does your doctor not know?
So the search started to find the cause.
I won't go into all the gross details but they found colon cancer. They cut out 2 feet of my colon and 15 lymph nodes.
So, today, for Thankful Thursday I'm just baring my soul and sharing my medical journal with all of you. I am so thankful that my knee needed replaced......
or I might have died with something I didn't know I had.
