OK, in the last few weeks I have alluded to health problems so now here’s the story. A few weeks ago I had a physical, which included blood tests and EKG etc.. I forgot to include a PSA test and had to go back for that. The initial results were a high number on the PSA (7.84) which wasn’t great. They felt I had a blockage in my heart from the EKG. The first thing they said was to go get this test from the cardiologist, then go have a sonogram done on your prostate. Well, the sonogram came up first and they felt they saw something on my prostate. Now at my age having a doctor say something like that doesn’t make you want to jump for joy. They told me I needed to have a biopsy, again not making me happy. Well, I went and had it done and came back no tumors or malignancy present, so I jumped a little. Then came the heart test, which consisted of me wearing a monitor for 24 hours it came back cool. So it would appear that I will be around for a while longer. I have had an Aortic Aneurysm for the last 30 years or so. When it was first discovered I was also found to have Retro Parental fibrosis. This meant that if they had to operate there were only two doctors in the US that would do it so here I am walking around with an Aneurysm. I am not going to worry about any of this because I’m 75 and have lived longer than I ever thought I would. I worry about senility or becoming a burden to others. Well, I think I’ve outdone myself on boring you today so I’ll just say this is FATS and ANTONIA saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.
