Updating the story
A little bit of an update on my health. I had an appointment with the nephrologist today. It went very, very well. The guy looks a bit like Ryan Stiles but I think he'll be great. A big change from any experience I've ever had with a specialist before in that he actually listened to me and acted concerned. Ah, he's probably just new.

I have been booked for a couple of procedures over the next few weeks, including a CT Scan. He has no easy answers yet, but seems to feel fairly confident we will find the issue. He also told me I may have to have a small operation similar to an angioplasty but for the tube between the kidney and the bladder. Of course, it's still too early for any major decisions.

I also had an email from my boss today basically telling me to take today off and to stop worrying about it that much. So I did. And it's been great. I feel pretty damned fine tonight. No major pain and relaxing today has given me a lot of energy. It's been a while since I could say that!

I spent the day attempting to finish my Christmas shopping. I'm now down to just 1 left and it's my brother who's a 3XL type o'guy so it looks like Thursday, I'll go down to the Big and Tall shop and if that fails, there's a liquor store close by. I think I can be forgiven if my presents this year are not the entirely most thoughtful I've ever done.

Vancouver, British Columbia
A patriotic Canadian full of visions of a better Canada, random thoughts and a lot of hot air. Who am I? A struggling writer and photographer, who looks forward to a better Canada. I read. A lot. I learn. A lot. I push myself. A lot. The world is a small place, and getting smaller every day. I'm proud to have friends in every corner of the earth, and abide by the old adage that there are no strangers, only friends we haven't met yet.
