The "C" Word 13 - Platelets Go Bye-bye!

I had four (4) various doctor appointments in the next two (2) weeks (right around Christmas and New Years) partly because of coincidence and partly because my platelet levels were very low in my last blood test.  Something like 74 instead of 150 to 450 in whatever units you measure platelets with.  Today's appointment revealed that the levels had come up enough that they cancelled the other appointment this week to recheck it.  In unrelated news, my girlfriend showed up unexpectedly and kept me company while they were running the tests.  Also, Merry Christmas!

I was recently diagnosed with Stage IV Colon Cancer.  It didn't want this to affect my regular videos, so I'm putting everything involving this into a new playlist called The "C" Word.

It seems that YouTube has been randomly unsubscribing people.  If you're seeing this, you may want to bookmark the channel page or follow me on Google Plus below to be alerted to new videos.
