We’re in a holding pattern on Dad news. The poor guy has been battling a respiratory thing since shortly after Christmas and due to the sad state of his post-chemo immune system, he’s not entirely past it. For this reason all of his lymph nodes are looking odd on PET, but it’s unclear whether that’s due to the fact that he’s trying to fight infection or that the cancer is recurring or some combination of all of it. His doctor has decided to scan again on February 5. I’m taking this as a good sign – apparently he’s in no rush. None of this really makes all that much sense to me, so I’m just holding on until February and thinking good thoughts. Oh, and I’m hanging out with these guys which does wonderful things for one’s outlook.
