So it’s come to my attention that the creators like to carry over little ATLA details to TLOK. Well, one of the small details in the series was that Mai had a younger brother, Tom-Tom. I don’t remember if he was a fire-bender or not, but he was young enough then to be at least a ripe age now.
Also, episode one references that the Order of the White Lotus searched both Northern and Southern water tribes for the next avatar. All attempts at claiming to be the avatar before Korra were false, and as the Lotus members looked drained/irritated/exhausted/call it what you will, it implies they have been looking for QUITE some time. (Past 6-7 years xD) So I’m just going to jump out there and speculate that Amon is potentially one of the children turned down for claiming to be the avatar. That’s about the only support for that claim I have, but I thought I’d jot it down here to remind myself when talking to some friends later.
BLUH. That means it’s closer to me going to bed and then waking up and getting ready and going to my inept doctor and see if I have to do some other tests or if I’m just some “lost cause.”
Honestly, I wish I could switch out of their practice but I don’t have a primary to refer me. I WOULD but the one I had before was taking new patients despite the fact that she was going to leave the practice soon. I had her for like.. 3 months.
._. I just want to go to this stupid doctor’s and not have them give me death glares every time I say “I haven’t had a chance to get a primary yet because I’m busy with classes.” So they can suck it. >8I
Everything right now is just getting to my last nerve. My uncle passed away a few months ago from leukemia. My mom’s aunt has skin cancer. My mom’s other aunt just had a double mastectomy for her breast cancer a few weeks ago, but we don’t know if the cancer is completely gone yet because she’s having drainage issues.
THEN: My uncle/Godfather was diagnosed with bladder cancer last month. The main tumor of the outer wall of his bladder was removed, but it went all the way through his bladder wall… He’s currently undergoing biopsies to see if it spread into his pelvic bone. No further treatment is decided.
THEN TO TOP THIS SHIT OFF: My other uncle found out yesterday he has prostate cancer. The two bladder/prostate uncles are brothers, and their elder brothers also has prostate problems so he’s getting that checked out to see how that’s going. (Here’s to hoping it’s just a little off because of his age!)
If my oldest uncle does end up having cancer, then I’m going to be really worried for my dad. He’s the youngest of the brothers, but if all of his other brothers are having cancer in that area, he needs to be checked out. I’m surprised my mom isn’t trying to talk him into it already.
There is just so much shit going on right now everything in my head seems to be racing. I’m the one in the family with the most… medical knowledge?, so a lot of this is “EXPLAIN THIS WORD ON HIS PAPERWORK. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN” and it’s really draining even though I understand their concerns. Granted my aunts are on fairly good stances with their cancers at the moment, my uncles are getting sent to this shitty quack doctor who is surgery crazy. He wants to remove the entire prostate for a stage 1 cancer, but is taking his sweet ass time with an aggressive cancer.
In a way, it’s a bit relieving that all of this is happening (not saying I’m happy they’re sick, just that everything around me is hectic) because now I don’t have time to worry about my own shit. I’m having test after test and I just had an MRI last week and apparently they don’t know what’s wrong with me either. Not a single doctor can explain what is going on with my body so they’re thinking of sending scans across the country. Fuck me if I end up having some freaking rare tumor on my pituitary gland. Or some rare gland disease that leaves me stuck on a lifetime of medication. I don’t have time for this.
Needless to say, there’s just a lot going on right now and my family needs all the prayers they can get. It’s all really appreciated
