weekend weather

So yeah, it’s getting HOT. Not as hot as it somtimes gets here during the summer, but we’re just barely into July. And normally you can add a few degrees to the “official high temperature”, especially around 5 PM in the centre of Sevilla. The good news is that it’s happening at the weekend when we have the cheaper electricity rates!  The bad news is my tap water is already smelling strongly of chlorine, which also doesn’t usually happen until some time in August. Guess we didn’t get enough rain this spring. Welcome to Summer 2021.

dodgy bits

I got my CT scan results yesterday (for scan done June 21st) and it’s not a bad report. There are still some unexplained dodgy bits, but nothing has changed much since the last scan in September. At least there are no obvious signs of cancer, so that’s good. The areas of inflammation, and the spot where I was “leaking” before (ewww)  are still cause for concern but short of opening me up again and taking a proper look the best they can do is keep monitoring me with scans and x-rays.

This morning the hospital called and I have an appointment with the oncologist on Friday… on the phone! I’ve never done that before. But what the heck. It saves me a trip out there in 40º weather and perhaps it will actually be better as I won’t feel self-conscious about having my notes out in front of me. We shall see.
