Well, my news from the MRI scan with Dr Jason definitely showed things trending in the direction that we wish. Even the large tumor in my cerebellum has shrunk by maybe 5 mm, which is an excellent sign. We didn't take any time to talk prognosis at at this point, however, because Jason and Dr Spect had heard about my bad night (lika a resposible patient I called my nurst first think ytin the morning), and after much discussion beteen the two, they deceided they could not rule out a pulmonary ambullism.
As this could haver serious help reprecissons, it was deceded Iwould immediately be sent into the ER a the Universty of Washington. There, they gace me a chest CT and maybe a couple X-raye, and the put me on supplemental oxygen, and I was in heaven.
Tuns out what I have is pheumonia of some sort, not a blood clot (been lots of tests to determine which sort), and they wanted to keep me here to dermine which sort and there have already been a couple times when it's been VERY LUCKY I was here and not a home. I mean, I think i probably wouldn've lived through anythihg at hom but still, the support group was nice.
Ayway, sighning off. The Ambien seems to be working well :)
