That lunch was first thing I ate all day. I was sick this morning so I didn't want breakfast, and then I had some imaging at the hospital and had to wait around for the report. Have to go back Friday for more tests. Can't help but feel like I'm wasting their time, all this extra stuff, since I do so hate to be a bother and I spend way too damn much time in the hospital.
Anyway, there's stuff going on medically but I won't be posting exactly what's going on until after a specialist visit next month. It's consuming a lot of my energy right now, which is why my post frequency has decreased. Nothing terribly serious (I'm not dying!) but I am likely to need abdominal surgery with a longish recovery period next summer (I was given a ballpark of how long the delay would be, which may delay my ability to start med school on time if I am accepted.
I'm looking at my options with respect to deferral or a leave of absence/working from home for the first few weeks, since it probably isn't going to be a grand idea for me to move really far right around that time either, but I don't have enough information at this point to call the schools and ask since I don't know exactly what is going on yet.
Once I have a complete picture, I'll post an explanation. As for now, I'm just tired and looking forward to the new year.
If I don't get to post before then, happy new year everyone.
