Another Week Begins

This is Monday morning. Yet another very busy week begins.

Tomorrow morning, I’ll need to pick up my pelvic ultrasound imaging, prior to an initial consultation with a new gynecologist. I’m beyond ready to be done with all of the consequences of prolonged menorrhagia, including iron-deficiency anemia.

There’s still a lot of work for me to do for my General Psychology class, which finishes on May 9. I still need to correct my students’ third examination. Thankfully, I’ve already written their fourth exam. I’ve fallen somewhat behind in grading their online assignments.

I’ll soon need to make travel arrangements for my trip to the Cleveland Clinic. I was recently reading about some of the risks associated with undergoing a tracheal re-section. These possible complications are entirely daunting to read.

I’m very thankful that I will be seeing a surgeon with such an excellent reputation, Dr. Robert Lorenz. I’ve happened to connect with other individuals who have idiopathic subglottic stenosis, and who have received successful surgeries from the same provider whom I’ll be seeing.

Yesterday, I happened to read about the probability of developing idiopathic subglottic stenosis. The odds of having this rare condition are only 1 in 400,000!
