My next yearly exam is scheduled for this week. It is amazing how a fairly quick check can either set you back on your normal workaday course or put you face to face with your end. One outcome leaves you chatting lightly about trivialities with your doctor. The other has nurses scrambling to setup your pre-operative tests and procedures. I have been through this ordeal so many times it feels a bit like a loop from the movie "Groundhog Day". However, I try to prepare myself each year to deal in strength with the outcome no matter what it may be. To be sure my highs and lows are much more controlled now than they were in the past. I guess no matter how big the stakes are, you eventually get used to dealing with things as they come. So know that I will deal with this too regardless of the outcome.
