I’ve been validated!
Also, I do not really want to die.
I know this blog is turning into “Flavia’s health problems” daily posts but I have to update since I have had an important development: I spent the whole day at various hospitals and medical centers and it has been confirmed that I need to be operated. To that end, I have an appointment with the surgeon tomorrow morning. Which means I will have to cut short my weekly volunteer gig at the municipality but I guess it is worth it. I must confess I have been living in constant panic for the past few weeks as it was at my current age that my father was initially diagnosed with the cancer that took his life.
At least I have had numerous studies done through the emergency service and they know exactly what I have (a ruined gallbladder) and that it needs to be removed in the short term. Looks like tomorrow morning I will know how short that term is.
For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you. Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
