Just a note: Other health stuff besides lung cancer

Thank you. Now I wait for a CT Scan of my chest and lungs in September. Try not to think of it too much. I feel so darned good. I'm sort of fearful that some cancer has returned–you know that sword of Damocles hanging over one's heard. Also comments heard and written that once you've had cancer it always comes back. That is my lurking fear. SO I try to go about my business and not let it surface too much. The specter looms however.

@alamogal635 I keep reminding myself that we can't change the outcome so the less "free rent" in our head that we give the "terrorist"* I feel improves our overall health. My next CT scan is late July and I've been pretty much able to keep the lurking fear at bay until about 2 weeks before unless someone specifically starts asking about it. (*The local doc here who had to break the news to me said that the good news is "we caught the terrorist in Afghanistan", meaning we caught it early. He was from the Mideastern and had a good sense of humor!}
