Frustrated Much?

Sisyphus was king of Corinth. He was notorious as the most cunning knave on earth. (clearly a parallel to myself). His greatest triumph came at the end of his life, when the god Hades came to claim him personally for the kingdom of the dead. Hades had brought along a pair of handcuffs, and Sisyphus expressed such an interest that Hades was persuaded to demonstrate their use – on himself. And so it came about that the high lord of the Underworld was kept locked up in a closet at Sisyphus’s house for many a day.

Eventually he was hauled down to Hades, where his indiscretions caught up with him. For a crime against the gods he was condemned to an eternity at hard labor. And frustrating labor at that. For his assignment was to roll a great boulder to the top of a hill. Only every time Sisyphus, by the greatest of exertion and toil, reached the summit, the darn thing rolled back down again.

I know exactly how he feels.

Seems that once I’m able to get a handle on one situation another one pops up. I’ve included a picture of me at my last hospital stay for those of you who haven’t seen me in awhile, a picture is worth 1000 words and you can clearly see the anguish in my vacant stare…

Pre Cardioversion

The eyes, haunting, they look so dead.... like a shark - is this really how I look?

Although the tumor on my liver has been diagnosed as benign, we are not out of the woods yet. My Neurologist appointment and examination for the Gravis, told me that in 85% of cases of Gravis in people under the age of 55, the cause is directly attributable to a tumor on the Thylmus. So I have another course of CT Scans and MRi’s to either confirm or deny this. Happening tomorrow at 7:20 Am. Results in a week or so.

7:20 in the morning come on, even if there is a tumor it won’t be up yet, at least wait until 9 or so, cripes, no need to be uncivilized, we all need our sleep…

Will fill you in on Gravis action in another post, have a great day.
