I'm Not Dead...

Posted by on Friday, March 26, 2010

Yet.

I guess I shouldn't leave the world hanging with an "I'm Dying" post for more than a week... you've probably all thought that I died.

I didn't. Or haven't yet anyways.

It turns out that I have a high level of something-or-other in my liver. Normal levels are 1-40 and I am a 70.

Which means I have a fat liver. Or a diseased liver. Or the hep.

I've gone in for more bloodwork (to hopefully rule out the hep) and an ultrasound on my liver.

Hopefully my liver is just fat and I'm not dying of cirrhosis of the liver or anything. Funny thing is that I am a) not jaundiced, b) not in pain and c) wouldn't have ever known anything was "wrong" if I hadn't gone in for some routine bloodwork to figure out things like my cholesterol levels.

Which are just peachy, thankyouverymuch.

Stupid liver.

I hardly ever drink and this is how you treat me?
