As if my life wasn't already complicated.
I have really maintained a great attitude about the 'issues' that have occured in my life as of late. I'm a new father - and so with that, comes 'less than I'm used too amounts of sleep'. OK.
While on paternity leave for 2 1/2 weeks in October, I go to get checked out by my Doctor....as I have a strange mass in my pelvic/groin region - diagnosed as an Inguina Hernia - and again diagnosed by the surgeon On 11/15 that it is indeed w/o a shadow of a doubt that it is an inguina hernia - surgery set for the next week - 11/22 - OK.
11/22 comes - I go in for surger - the outcome? It wasn't a hernia at all, but a malignant lump and it is Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. OK.
I have dealt with all of this really well - and my upcoming chemotherapy at City of Hope and probable 'Medical Disability Leave' are OK with me. In fact, my wife even resigned from her job in order to take care of not only the baby, but me too - depending on how rough my chemo is. OK.
So.....I have all of this on my shoulders....and I somehow manage to keep a smile on my face through all of it and what happens!? At lunch today, my CAR OVERHEATS! On top of that, it needs a catalitic (sp?) converter repair and since I got a flat tire recently from a bulge on the side of a tire, more than likely I will need to get a new set of tires.
Seems pretty minor maybe, but it's like 'WHAT NEXT????!'
Anyway, just needed to rant and rave a little bit. Frankly, I think I need to just get rid of the car - but then, with wife unemployed and me going out on disability soon, we probably wouldn't qualify for a car loan.
Again - just needed to RANT & RAVE
