The Universe works in mysterious ways.
So here we are with this new health issue to deal with, and here's me wondering how I'm going to afford yet another set of bills... But behold, I was turned on to a digestive research study focused on treating fatty liver. I had my physical yesterday... blood pressure was good, weighed in at 186 on their scales, my EKG was optimal, I gave several vials of blood like a pro, and got paid for my time. Tomorrow morning I have another fibroscan, and then I have a biopsy on the 2nd. Mom's all prepared to be my medical chaperone/chauffeur, and I just need to make sure I have some soups on hand for my liquid diet that day.
I know that in my life I'll never be a big name, I'll never be famous or be an influencer. I'll never make a huge discovery, be published, go down in history (or infamy!)... but I am an organ donor, I'm on the bone marrow registry, I'm going to be part of this possibly decade long study for a drug that will help future folk, and as always I'm still going to be a VERY LOUD VOICE for people who seek health care and get brushed off.
I will go on in small ways. :)
