One day down, two to go

Today was the CT scan and the bone scan, so we were at the hospital from about 10:00 to 2:00. Marshall's stress level was much lower than it's been in the past, which was a huge relief for me. And today we were able to avoid the awful side effects of him drinking the contrast medium (a dose of Immodium right before drinking the stuff!).

And because of the chest pain Marshall had on Monday, the oncologist added a little extra bone scan time to the chest area.

We stopped for lunch and came back to the room and relaxed for the evening. Tomorrow is just dentist and psychologist.  And then dinner with Marshall's nephew.

Special messages:
      To Bill Dowell -- I've lost your email address somehow and Marshall and I want to wish you a belated happy birthday.
      To my cousin Tom in Minnesota who has been battling non-Hodgkins lymphoma for five years and is still battling -- thinking of you all the time.  Cancer sure sucks.
