Update Update : Diagnosis!

Today, my thyroid  tumor was biopsied.;  i don't expect to learn muck.  I'm sure it is benign.

The results of the marrow biopsy were shared with older daughter and me yesteerday.  The loss of energy and red blood cells is due to an inability of my bone marrow to release red blood cells (mylodisplasia).  This can be treated with recular injections of Darbepoetin Alfa (Aranesp),which,,i was told,. is aa hormone.  Shots will begin a week froin Thursday and continue every other week indefinitely.

Jeff have you come across the work of Stephen Jenkinson? It's not for everyone but I think you might want to explore what he says. Here's a link https://orphanwisdom.com/

Well that is good to know! Better to have a named and treatable problem than a nameless one.

Good news. Do they foresee any uncomfortable side effects from the marrow injections? And assuming you're right about the benignity of the thyroid tumor, would they take any action on it?

Thanks for sharing the update. Love.

Thank you, Mary Ann! <3
And much thanks to all who commented to this post and to all others who are concerned. And, of course, blessings to all, everywhere.

I don't post much because there there because thinks haven't changed much. Besides, i find my exterior life, at best, boring; and have difficulty imagining how it could be interesting to anyone else.

My life is becoming more and more interior, silent, empty, contemplative. I think William Blake and the Neo-Platonists might have had it right. As the body weakens, the spirit becomes stronger.

If there is any change, red cell-wise. I will promptly report it.

Loving-kindness, peace, compassion and joy to all!

And if your silence and the contemplation it makes in you produce sharable fruit, I would love to read about it.

Oh, yes. It was benign.

Otherwise things are going slow
