Healthy or at least alive

My doctor pronounced me "amazingly healthy" today, even after she bent me over the exam table, put a finger where no finger should go and told me my prostate is bigger than normal.

She has been treating me for 12 years and seen a lot of my weird injuries, so I think mostly she is just impressed I am not dead.

I mean I have a really crappy disability, which was why she had to help me bend over the table. I stayed in my chair for most of the exam and just stood up and held onto the table for the yucky part.

Her explanation of the prostate is that I sit all the time, so I guess it has got squashed into a bigger shape. She wasn't worried, even though I have a family history of prostate cancer.

She pooh-poohed my other worries about various problems, too, and told me how good things appear.

At least until she gets the lab work back.

revel in good health, despite FA. It is a good report.
