A week or so ago, I wrote about “Normal” (Click HERE to see that post), in how the doctor described me after my annual heart cath. As a patient, that is a sweet word to hear, especially from a doctor. Now whether we, as heart transplant patients, truly believe we will ever be “normal” is up for debate. Usually, I refer to my state of health as a “new normal”.
Recently a family member had to have an abdominal CT scan, with contrast. In reading the actual “hard copy”of the report some time later, we could only laugh at one of the words that was used a number of times …….. “Unremarkable ……. as in the following quote, “the gall bladder, pancreas, adrenal glands, spleen and stomach are unremarkable”.
That single word reminded me of the doctor saying “normal” to me. Though, normal seems to have a bit more flair than “unremarkable”.
We’ve had a lot of fun with the VERY remarkable family member with UNremarkable parts.
There is a LOT to be said for being normal, or unremarkable!!
And, if you have normal (unremarkable) parts and wish to recycle them, please consider becoming an organ donor. Give the ULTIMATE gift ….. give LIFE!
