Monsters are real. All of those that were dreaded when we were children do exist.
I want to share with you, my readers, a story about a real live monster. This monster is a vampire. Vampires are really cool in this 21st century. They are very popular in books, movie and on television.
My monster is a vampire and lives within my kidney. The vampire is defined as a tumor. It is nearly 5 inches in diameter, and is taking all my blood. Just as vampires are prone to do. Just sucking all the blood as fast as my body can make it.
I am not certain when this critter came to exist in my kidney, I just know it happened. You might say, “Well,Betty, why didn’t you know this was happening?”
Well, I knew something was wrong with me, but I didn’t know what. I did mention this to my doctor, and was advised to practice meditation and deep breathing. I lost a lot of weight. More than 50 pounds!
All this time, I knew something was terribly wrong. My son, Mike, insisted that I obtain a second opinion. I went to another doctor who, after taking a complete medical history and family medical history, ordered me to have a colonoscopy. The test indicated that I have a large mass in my colon. I was scheduled for surgery.
While undergoing pre-ops, the CAT scan showed the vampire monster tumor in my kidney. Now that the colon mass is on the back burner, I am waiting to hear when further tests and surgery will be at Markey Cancer Center in Lexington.
I share all of this with you my loyal readers because I have always shared with you. The good times, the bad times and all the in-between times. What do I ask of you? Nothing but lots of prayers.
