Not a good week. My best friend, Tom, has been having pain while breathing for a number of months. The VA is so slow in getting appointments. After an X-Ray, Ultrasound, and now CT scan, the last radiology report indicates the likelihood of cancer that has either spread from the lung to the liver or in reverse, Waiting for a STAT appointment at the Milwaukee VA for further scans (I suspect PET scan and biopsy). I am trying to keep it together, but am devastated inside. Tom and Sharon are coming over for dinner tomorrow and talk further about this. If I were not agnostic, I would pray, but I am not a believer so all I have left is hope. Buddha was right-life is hard.
