Sorry for blog hiatus. I’ve had that noro thing (which Will Not Leave) and then last week I got a letter from the hospital. I went to the doc about the cough but while I was there got him to look at a mole, (I’m a big fan of getting everything sorted in one appointment. Same philosophy as tidying up the floor when I bend down to pick something up). Anyway, the doc seemed a bit worried and then on the same day I got a phone call from the hospital with an urgent appointment for Tuesday. Since then they’ve phoned Glen and me separately and I’ve been sent two letters. Hopefully it’s nothing, (and I’m very grateful for being seen so quick), but in terms of pastoral care, the letter was erm – unsettling.
You’re probably wondering why you’ve been given this EMERGENCY CANCER REFERRAL. Perhaps you’re wondering – do I definitely have cancer? If so, we can confidently tell you that this may not be the case. However, you have been given this extremely urgent CANCER REFERRAL based on a consultation between The Specialist and Your GP. Do not rearrange it. It is a matter of life
and death and good forward planning. Can we also suggest you don’t come to the appointment alone. Or watch the films of Lars Von Trier any time soon. Or make firm plans f0r 2013.
Happy New Year!
Sorry – this is a bit of an odd blog post. But I’m not really sure what to do with this, except sort of laugh and say I’m a bit scared. Prayers appreciated – and if you’ve got scary things a-comin, let me know and I’ll pray for you too.
