July, August, September & October this year have been filled with my husband's health issues. He's had CT-scans, MRIs, x-rays, PET scans, a pulmonary function test, wore a holter monitor for 24 hours, had a bronchoscopy, and heaven only knows what other tests. When he walks into the blood lab for yet another blood test, the nurses there call him by name. I've lost track of the number of doctors he's seen in the past four months. Pneumonia, TIA, carcinoid tumour in his lung which must be removed asap, and pain in his feet so terrible he can't even walk around the house from one room to the next. Surgery set for November 17th, but he has other work to be done (on his feet) before then. All this keeps us both very busy.
