But there's a chance that in about 24 hours things will get a lot worse.
Today I have the second of my iron infusions and tomorrow morning I go in to be scoped to look for possible causes of the low iron. They're trying to "rule some things out," but of course that means they're looking for them. Some of the things they want to rule out are pretty scary.
At this point there are a couple of possibilities. If they don't find anything, it'll be another month before I start doing follow up appointments with hematology, and during that time, I'll probably be able to get back to a regular writing pace (for those of you worried about what the hell is going on here on the blog). If they find something, it might be a small fix or a lifestyle change type thing (like cutting out gluten) or it might mean I have to go into immediate treatment for cancer. And if that happens, I imagine the blog might actually take another HIT on productivity.
But I'm going to keep trying as hard as I can.
