suddenly: new fears

Diane and my friend Tsungyi just had a discussion with the junior doctor who is in charge of me here on the ward.  More data has come back and he isn’t happy with it.  There is a “shadow” in one of my lungs and there is a “spot” on my liver.  We don’t know what this means.  The doctor doesn’t know what this means.  There will be further tests on Friday.  Something called a PET scan.  It’s far more accurate than lung scans or ultrasounds.

A new gun is pointed to our heads and we are suddenly terrified.  I write about it now, mainly because I can’t even begin to think about it.
