Good News

Just had a medical appointment with a Professor in Sydney, an expert endocrinologist.

There had been some worry that my weird hormonal levels might have been caused by a Neoplasm (that's tumour to you and me).

His words : "Don't worry about it". The signatures are all wrong, he's seen far more weird things in his career too.

The not-so-good news : more tests, yet more tests, more bleedin' tests, and blood tests using the thickest needle they had available. And I have to go back in two weeks for the first of many follow-ups.

The really not-so-good news : full treatment may cost well in excess of $50,000. And much of that won't be covered by insurance, nor Medicare.

Oh well, we shall see.
