They predicted a week with rainfall, we’ll get a day and a half.
I can feel a change in the air today, it’s still rather warm but the wind is carrying a coolness and the smell of rain with it. That however doesn’t mean we will get much rain, according to predictions we’ll get just enough to moisten the ground today. I think that’s the best for the ground, if we would get showers immediately the water would just continue running away to the bog behind my garage. If the ground is a bit wet before the big rains starts it will stay and get sucked up by the soil.
At first they predicted rain all next week but now they predict it only for today and tomorrow, after that we’ll get sunshine and autumn temperatures. To bad they weren’t right in the first prediction because we really need lots of rain now. How strange for me to see that I want rain 🙂
I got a letter from the surgeons at the big hospital in Skövde the other day, they have taken a look at the x-rays and have decided to leave my lymph nodes as they are and instead I’ve gotten an appointment to do a colonoscopy here in Falköping instead. It turns out that I have several lymph nodes that look strange but since there were no tumors that could be seen on the x-rays they will now check for polyps. Some polyps are the pre stage of cancer and should be removed.
I know this sound terrible, pre stages to cancer but I’ve been reading about this now and it isn’t that bad actually 🙂 There are many kinds of polyps but only a few are bad. It takes ten years for a bad kind to become a tumor and since they can’t see any of those on the x-rays I still have plenty of time to remove them and that’s what they’ll be doing if they find any during the colonoscopy. When all are removed I won’t have to think about polyps for another ten years 🙂 They will either burn them or cut them out unless there are just too many because then they will remove that part of the intestine surgically pretty soon after this procedure.
They’ll do this the 25th this month so I won’t be working that day of course or the day before because I will have to drink lots of laxatives already on the morning of the 24th. I doubt I’ll be much use at work that day 🙂 🙂 🙂 Still, I have absolutely no idea why my stomach behaves like it does or how to make it work as it should, somewhere in all this they have forgotten to tell me that 🙂 🙂 🙂
Now I’ll go outside to water those things I really want to survive this draught and after that I’ll have some ice cream and hot cocoa 🙂
Have a great day!
