Enough being probed, prodded and generally abused......

I've had it with the medical community, bless their hearts, but we've only gotten a bit further in a month of prods, needles, dyes and general unmentionables. So Thursday I'm flying home for a bit of a rest.

As to our 'government', I'm now waiting for a state of emergency to be declared, martial law imposed, and Trump claims the title of Fuehrer For Life, the Judiciary branch abolished from the chain of governance, and all passports invalid.

In the meantime, here's a picture of my youngest, with the view from Pike Place Market.

  1. Ah shyte. But glad you're being let loose. Any conclusions on what ails you?

    Stay safe, my friend.

    1. Yeah, maybe. Easiest solution would be if it's OSA, that Tx'able with CPAP. We'll see.

  2. No pacemaker, I presume.

    Your youngest looks like the epitome of Seattle style.

    1. Not yet, but if the CPAP doesn't fix it, that might be on the table.

  3. She'd do fine in Italy, too.

    I hate hearing they weren't able to find out anything helpful after all that testing.

    1. You're right about Italy, she was right at home there.

      We may have found something after all. See comments below.

  6. Sorry the exams are inconclusive. Wishing you the best, however. In the last couple of years I've learned a bit about the prodding and probing and watchful waiting or surveillance. Today was time for decadal celebration of colon examination. After going through all of that you wonder why do we eat anything at all?! But I intend to start again. For some reason Blogger will not permit me to view some photos on some blogs. Your daughter's photo is one. I'll revisit it later. In the meantime, glad you can get back home. Peace.

    1. Got the results of the sleep study today, do have OSA, and it could be the root cause of the asystole. We'll see what tx'ing the OSA does.

  7. Best hopes, Mike. Photo is great, lovely portrait --pleasantly calm over a surprisingly busy and interesting background. Is that the Seattle Great Wheel I see in the distance?

    1. Did a sleep study Monday night that might have brought the pieces of the puzzle together....going to try CPAP when I get back to Butte.

    2. Yes, is that what it's called? Emily says they want something like 40 bucks for a turn around it.

      To the left of it, just to the right of the light pole, is Rainer, Washington's 14K mountain, aka 'the mountain'....it's either out or covered, the locals say, as in 'the mountain's out today'.

  10. Sorry you have to endure all that.
    I'm hoping that yesterday, was the start of the end of the current regime. There is no way the orange one didn't know about those phone calls. I guess we now know why Putin, didn't respond in kind, to Obama ousting his spies.

    1. Yep, and maybe why and how the orange one won, eh?

  11. I hope you are soon done with the poking and prodding and on the road to better health... I have the same hope for our country and afraid it has only just begun

    1. It may be that I am, going to try CPAP to see if the root is OSA.

  12. My apologies for my cohorts. To be going through all this at this time is just a bugger. A embuggerances of overwhelming proportions.

    1. Ah, some of them are/were colleagues of mine, and are getting long in the tooth. It's interesting to see life from the other side of the desk or table, eh?

  13. No A embuggerance. Embuggerances. Can't type some days.

    1. Thank you, Susan. It's my wish also, and for you too.

  15. Your kid is beautiful.

    Hope you're feeling better.

    I think we're going to make it. America will prevail- checks and balances and stuff. But then, I've always been an optimist.

    1. I do wonder about this time, I think we'll not come out of this one unscathed.
