Health Concerns Again

I know that I have mentioned this before, but I know it has been a while ago.  Recent events make this a concern again.  Back when I had surgery for cancer I started to have CAT Scans.  In those scans it was discovered that I have an Aortic Aneurysm in my abdomen.  It is midway down and when it was discovered it was significant, but apparently not a surgical concern.  In the almost 7 years since that original CAT scan the Aneurysm has grown.  The growth has been slow, but the size is now at the verge of being a surgical concern.  The surgery is usually successful, but it is surgery and it IS major. 

Later this month I will be seeing a thoracic vascular surgeon and I will learn more.  Life is so strange.  You deal with one thing and there is always another thing. I'll post when I know anything new.
