Oh, man, today did not go as planned.
I guess my CT Scan looked pretty bad, because the radiologist immediately called Dr R. He was especially worried about the tumor next to my spine, the one we irradiated in 2009. It grew.
Dr R called my home number looking for me. He updated Lou, who then told him about all my recent back pain.
Back pain + tumor growth near spine = concern for spinal cord
Dr R found me outside the lab on Floor 0 of the new cancer center. I was waiting for my EKG and planning to go back to the office.
Dr R said we needed an MRI ASAP to make sure the spine isn't being compressed because that can cause paralysis.
Long story short, i am in a johnny, in a hospital bed, waiting for pain meds and the MRI.
Lou is with me! John next door drove him up here lickety split.
Thank God Lou is here.
I just sent email to my manager at work because 3 of my books are supposed to be published tomorrow, and I probably won't be there to do all the last minute tasks.
