The beginning of something but I don't know what
Well the CT was Monday. This morning the doc called to tell me that he didn't have good news for me. The scan read similar to the xray in the indication of pleural plaques because of asbestos exposure but the kick in the gut was the following sentence: "4 cm right lower lobe parenchymal mass worrisome for malignancy". Shit. Through a few connections I was able to get him an appointment with a pulmonologist this afternoon (they first offered an appointment 8 days from now--sorry but you just can't expect normal intelligent people to sit and worry for a week--you know all about the squeaky wheel...I can squeak with the best of them) This blog may end up being my venting spot. I have no idea where we are headed but knowing me I will have to vent somewhere and this will probably be it. So, if any of you want a blog that is constantly full of perfume and roses, this probably isn't the one for you. We see the pulmonary guy at 2 today....keep a good thought.
