Click or bang?

Well, it's that time again. Tomorrow morning I must go into Manhattan for one of my regularly scheduled blood tests.
Hopefully, the results will show that the medication I'm taking is keeping my calcium level steady.
A couple of years ago, one of my surgeons told me that a patient of his with the same cancer described going in for these tests as never knowing whether to expect a click or a bang.
The allusion to Russian roulette is fitting.
Let's hope for a click this time.

Hi Michael,

My best wishes for your test.

I loved your tea post. Right now i am sipping my morning tea. I learnt to enjoy my tea like never before after reading your warm soothing description about it.

I just realised that enjoying, feeling the taste of tea in my mouth, gulping it slowly, knowing it is entering my system seemed like a quiet tea-meditation, this early morning.

Michael :)

Thanks so much, Anu!
I know you've got your own medical situation to deal with, and I wish you the very best for a happy outcome.
Thanks again, from one tea-lover to another...
