Guten Morgen, Mein Katzchen.
Here in Vutopia, we have received a passel of good news and bad news recently. Let's start off with the good news, shall we?
First, I do not have to make the 2+ hour commute to my company's corporate HQ in Franconia-fucking-Springfield. Apparently, the contractual issues are being worked out and my company decided I could continue to work at the client site. Huzzah!
Second, I had my follow-up appointment with the surgeon yesterday. And, there is no cancer! Yay! However ... (and this brings us to the bad news) ...
I seem to be extraordinarily blessed in that I am the 1 in the 1 in 10 people who need a second surgery. Joy. I go back to the surgeon in 3 months to determine if a second surgery is necessary. He seems to think it will be. Oh, whoopee.
On the plus side (good news?), he said the second surgery will not be as intensive/excruciatingly painful as the first one. Yay? There is also a small chance that my immune system will kick in and the surgery won't be necessary.
Also, I have totally maxed out my deductible and out of pocket maximum for my health insurance for the year (that's what happens when you get beaten/mugged and have surgery within the same 12 month period), so this second surgery will be "free." Woo hoo. It's like "Buy One Extremely Painful Ass Surgery, Get One Free." And, you know I can't resist a sale! (I wonder if they will throw in a cute pair of black wingtips).
And, I guess that's about it. Hope you have a groovilicious day!
