An update on Mr S

Since so many of you held my hand through Mr S’s health scare two and a half years ago (and can you believe it’s been two and a half years), I thought I’d share the update.

He had yet another carotid artery ultrasound today. He was having them every three months, and then six months. So the side they operated on is still doing awesome and the other side is still at 60%, which they still don’t feel is worth the operation as long as he remains symptom free. It’s not the sort of thing that gets better, so it not getting worse is wonderful.

And the doctor cleared him to wait an entire year before the next ultrasound!

Thank God for aspirin, Simvastatin, oatmeal, chicken and good friends!
