I Couldn’t Make This Up If I Tried

IMG_0275I’m having a weird week.  Hmmm where do I start?

IMG_0279Took something called Jut-U-SinR8 recommended by a the quack in Etobicoke and ended up in the ER with a convict, 5 security guards, and a room full of screaming kids and other sick people.  This is what happens when you live in Scarborough.  Decided not to stay.

 

IMG_0276IMG_0373Found a cute paramedic around the corner, showed him my heart monitor results and asked him if it was safe to get my husband to drive me to Mount Sinai (because the last time I came here with heart trouble they told me not to do that again)  or should I be enlisting in his ambulance services?  He said, “Oh, that is not good…. but I think your husband has enough time to get you there”.  Good enough for me, I thanked him and escaped.  Luckily, my racing heart startied to show signs of improvement and I told my husband, “What the heck, just take me home (where  left the kids alone).

IMG_0393IMG_0363The next day I went back to the quack and told him I didn’t have heart problems before I came here and now I was leaving with two.   All I got was 1/2 my money back.  Asshole.

IMG_0466IMG_0461Went to the Naturopathic Clinic today for my Vitamin C infusion and was rejected due to my recent heart problems.  Brought out my meds from Germany and all my supplements and guess what I learned today?

 I’m taking snake venom!

How do you like them apples?

IMG_0468IMG_0459I’m currently waiting for my results on my MRI from Monday.  That was the best appt ever.  No one was scheduled for any MRI’s because they were on stand by for Victoria Day Week-end Trauma patients.  There weren’t any, so I went right in and was finished in 45 minutes.  Bonus.

 

IMG_0456IMG_0474So if I don’t have any increases in existing bone tumours, I would like to think the snake venom is working and whatever they saw in my lungs isn’t anything to be concerned about.  If, however, I have some new spots on any of my bones, I am going to have to come up with a different game plan.  Hopefully the spots they zapped in January with radiation are dead/stable.

Snake venom doesn’t taste too bad, you know.  I mean, if you think about it, I’ve been given mustard gas (amongst other chemical warfare, I’m sure), thalidamide, and rat poison (and those are the ones what I know about).  It’s a wonder I’m not dead already.

I couldn’t make this up if I tried.
