The body of Josef Andrew Havelka V1.0 has been through quite a bit over the years since coming off the assembly line. Right from the beginning, there were issues with the air intake. Had this been the dark ages, this model would’ve been destroyed early on. But after a minor repair at age 2, everything seemed to be going ok.
Until the ear infections kicked in resulting in tubes getting installed in the drum assembly to help drain excess fluid. Then came the allergies and asthma that have lasted most of the lifetime of this 1976 Model Josef.
A few years ago, there was a procedure implemented in order to prevent spreading of this version into the world. Three byproducts seemed to be the limit achieved. A slight swelling and uncomfortableness occurred briefly…
Then, some diagnostic tests were performed to see if the possibility of Marfan Syndrome was possible. As this body has shown many signs of it, the doctors ruled it out at this moment, but have requested a check up every five years.
Recently, there has been a new issue arising. A difficulty when swallowing. Right above my stomach, it feels like choking. Now I wait for an appointment to have a scope pushed down my throat to check out the esophagus.
There’s still a few more years and miles left on this version of me. A few nicks and scratches on the outer shell, some loss of hair as well adds to the charm. Growing older and deterioration of the body is to be expected. Good thing I don’t plan on staying in Josef Andrew Havelka V1.0 once the time comes.
