Cancer Watch. Carol is taking Juanita for a bone scan today. Tomorrow both Mother and I are going for PET scans, one for each of us.

We know Nita has bone cancer, secondary to the breast cancer she had years ago and presently being managed fairly well. The bone scan determines the status of that cancer. The PET scan will determine whether it has spread to other organs. That would not, of course, be a good thing.

I have NHL somewhere in my system, but it has been dormant, for which I give God thanks. The oncologist, Dr. Feinberg, the same physician who treats Nita, worries about it, though, and every every couple of years orders a PET.
