Hi all,

I had a CAT scan Monday. Saw my oncologist Tuesday and he said I have pneumonia. Yay!

The pneumonia could explain all my current symptoms – fatigue, hacking cough, shortness of breath, rising tumor markers, etc.

The pneumonia so clouded the scan that they can’t tell the size or status of the 2 nodules I’ve getting chemo for since late August.

My doctor says we’ll do another CAT scan after the pneumonia clears up and possibly consider radiation if the nodules are still there.

That is certainly a great reaction. I wish I'd thought of that last June when I was hospitalized for the P'monia.

It sure puts things in perspective, having something so treatable and relatively quick to cure.

Great attitude.

Prayers and Best Wishes,
