While running tests to see what kind of infection made my white cell count sky high, they found fibroid tumors, and my ovary (I have only one) is cancerous. They ran a buffet of tests on me. The laparoscopic biopsies is the most recent. He said suspicious spots showed up in glands and elsewhere all over my abdomen, so that was why this surgery. Basically, they are finding out whether there is any point to bother treating me.
I’m waiting to find out if I just celebrated my last New Year’s.
My colon is clear. So are my thyroid and breasts.
I know this much, if they can’t promise me more than a year, I am calling it quits on all tests and treatments.
If I get less than a year, I will just use my SSI and ride Amtrak til I die. They have an excellent rail pass deal. I could see the whole country, staying sometimes in shelters. Yup, if my calender is a few pages short, that’s what I’m gonna do. So, either way, I have something to look forward to.

Yay! I am glad that you don’t need one. My apologies, but my mind edited out that pertinent detail. Saturday brain, I guess!

RE: Your answer Thanks for your comments. Both my husband and I have had many years experience traveling in small vans, and I really, really want to see the country in an RV. To me, the important part would be having a driver – like one of my unemployed, adult Grandsons.
