Good Medical News

I have recently had some medical tests and today saw my own doctor to review the results. She is pleased with my progress. The best news is that the deep vein thrombosis in my legs which was one of the major elements of the condition that sent me into hospital ten months ago has cured itself to the extent that my veins are all now functioning normally and the blood is flowing as it should. I still have some small vestigial signs of damage but nothing I can't live with. Along the way I have also discovered that my prostate gland is completely normal - always something worth checking at my age - that a variety of other minor symptoms are "nothing to worry about" and that my blood pressure is "perfect" - all good news. This leaves me with the main items - pulmonary embolisms and aneurysm of the aorta. Regarding the aneurysm one has to hope that it does not grow or only does so slowly. Regarding the embolisms, in theory they should eventually fade away, though it might take years, so long as no new ones form, which is why the improvement in circulation in my legs is such good news. Embolisms generally form due to restricted circulation in the legs, as when sitting in airplanes or in the lotus position for extended periods.

Food, Exercise & Climate

It is pretty chilly here at this time of year. However, except on the very worst days, it does not keep one indoors and there is plenty to do outside. Maintaining a regime of little travel and much exercise is what has cured my legs. And we are still eating some produce from our garden. These are our own home grown tomatoes - pretty good for December.

En l'absence de Darmavidya, j'ai - en ma qualité de voisine et d'amie - le privilège de m'occuper (un peu) de Tara, la petite chatte. C'est un bonheur  de la voir me faire la fête chaque fois que je me rends à Eleusis: elle s'étire, se roule sur le dos au soleil ou saute sur mes genoux. J'ignore si elle a profité de l'enseignement du maître des lieux, mais j'ai comme l'impression qu'elle me donne une belle leçon de sagesse: elle…

At the moment I am feeling very sad for the state of the planet. As I write the great forests are being consumed by fire, both the tropical forest in Brazil and the tundra forest in Russia. The great forests are the lungs of the earth. I myself have lung problems. When there are parts of the lungs that don’t work anymore one can run out of energy. It can strike suddenly. We will probably not do anything serious about climate change or wildlife extinction…

My medical condition continues to be a mystery. It is clear that I do not have any of the big nasty things - brain tumour, cracked skull, stroke, etc - as these have been ruled out by MRI investigation. Nonetheless I continue to have persistent, continuous head pain that varies in intensity and I become exhausted by the least effort so that I am functioning like an invalid incapable of doing very much. There is always a possibility that the whole syndrome is a…

“Do we know what it means to be struck by grace? It does not mean that we suddenly believe that God exists, or that Jesus is the saviour, or that the Bible contains the truth. Grace strikes us when we are in great pain and restlessness. It strikes us when we walk through the dark Valley of a meaningless and empty life. It strikes us when we feel that our separation is deeper than usual, because we have violated another life, a life which we loved, or from which we were estranged. It strikes us… Continue
