FRIDAY EVENING UPDATE - NOT A GOOD DAY FOR NEWS :(
While shopping at Home Depot, got a call from my VA nurse. First part threw me for a loop. She said that based on their most recent blood work, my liver function and kidney function numbers were off the charts. Said my doctor considered it very serious. They are bringing me in next week, not only to re-test, but to run higher level tests. And they are setting up an urgent ultra sound of both parts, asap, at the Greenville VA clinic. Least I won't have to make the trip so soon again to Columbia. This took me by total surprise to be honest, as if I need new and potentially serious problems.
I asked if they had gotten the CAT and MRI results in from Tuesday. Yes. Can you please tell me? Silence on the phone for about
30 seconds. I'm sorry, but they are marked: Must be discussed between patient and doctor in person. I tried again, can you at least tell me if they were clear? Sorry, not allowed to disclose findings. Will have to wait till you come in to see the doctor.
having swords hanging over my head. Usually on scans, if they are clear, patients typically told even by phone, no major issues, or the all clear signal.
Not schedule to see the Doc until the 23rd, unless these new problems areas gets me in to see him before that appointment.
The fun goes on and on.
And on a side note, despite our best legal efforts in court this morning, and with a very emotional and compelling victim statement by my ex-boss, the paroled felon parole-breaking slime bag that we were hoping to return to prison only got a minor slap in the wrist. Instead of the hard as* judge that we met with 2 weeks ago, this scum bag drew the luck of a very weak minded and liberal judge. We were astounded by the outcome. This same person didn't even show up at the previous hearing, and there was an active arrest warrant in play for his arrest that was never served. Something not right about
our justice system here in SC. Talking about
a guy that I proved embezzled 250K in 2008, and we got a 10 year sentence at the time, but he only served less than a third of it. He's also the prime suspect for another missing 4 million, actually only suspect. Since being on parole, this was already his 2nd violation, and he's still walking the streets. Sorry, rant over. Not a good day folks.
