Medical Issues

I am going through a lot of med­ical tests late­ly.  And, in keep­ing with the “James, you’re a freak” con­text of my life in gen­er­al, these tests keep giv­ing con­tra­dic­to­ry – even mutu­al­ly exclu­sive! – results. 

At my last phys­i­cal there were some odd­i­ties dis­cov­ered, so my doc­tor start­ed me on these oth­er tests.  He says there is like­ly noth­ing to wor­ry about, but we need to have every­thing checked out. 

There is a chance that I may have the same can­cer that killed my father.  I was exposed to the chem­i­cal that caused his can­cer and I have already had some prob­lems because of it.  The dif­fer­ence here is that unlike my father, I am refus­ing to be defeat­ed by some­thing as insult­ing as cells of my body decid­ing to grow out of con­trol.  If that’s what I have, then it’s going to have to go.  I don’t have time for it. 

Of course, there’s a chance that the odd­i­ties are some­thing entire­ly dif­fer­ent.  Giv­en my “freak-fac­tor” it’s actu­al­ly a fair­ly good chance.  My doc­tor is still puz­zled by the fact that I have 2 extra ver­te­brae, so I don’t think any­thing else will sur­prise him very much.
