Hello folks. Hope you are all doing well. I believe I am but maybe the doctor will tell me in a few days. Many of you know I have diabetes and have had trouble with the gout. Over the years I have learned a few things about my body and how to control diabetes and the gout, but I have yet another issue and that is with my liver. Seems that when I first got the gout I was told by a friend that Ibuprofen will keep the gout from reoccurring. Well it may have but after a couple of years my liver had become inflamed, and a blood test showed that we may have a problem.
The doctor determined that my liver has swollen because of abuse of Ibuprofen and told me to stop taking it. However my blood tests show no improvement but the problem has not got better either. So this past month I have had an ultrasound and finally yesterday I had to have a biopsy on my liver and should not something before the weekend. Seeing how my friend Lou passed because of cancer of the liver, it seems scary, but at the same time I don’t believe I have cancer. Any the doctors will analyze the tests and if there is something I need to do or change, then we will get on it.
For the procedure, it was very easy but they made me stay 4 additional hours at the hospital to make sure I did not have any complications from the procedure. The staff were very friendly and efficient and I left feeling like a VIP. Finally someone has realized how very important I am.
I see the doctor next week to review the medications that I am taking, and I believe some medicine will be eliminated. I am approaching 60 years and I have to feel like less medicine is a good thing and the result of living a little better life today. If I stepped on Dr Phil’s ruler of life I would have a lot longer behind me and will try and do the best of having happy productive years ahead of me. When my time does come, I have come short in some things, but I can reflect back and see many things that I am happy about, and for sure I have had a good life.
On the business side of my life, things are going well. Nicole TJ is quickly becoming a super star and hope she can continue on that path. Kimberly, Gisselle, Ana Lucia, Minerva, Arantza, Abby and Marena are all doing well, so we are doing just fine. It is nice to have so much talent on our site at the same time. Always in search of that next star.
Hope to be back soon, and in the mean time be safe out there. We will be waiting for your return.
