The results of PET scans are definitely pass/fail. There's no middle ground for this sort of thing. No room for B-pluses or C minuses. You're either good (pass) or you've got something fishy going on that needs to be watched, biopsied, or removed (fail).
Dr. Oncologist was out of the office today, so substitute Dr. Oncologist called to give me what he thought were the time-sensitive PET scan results. Sub Dr. O called to tell me that I have a sinus infection. I said thanks, I'm already treating that. He said great and was about to hang up when I interjected, "How about my spine? I'm really nervous about my spine." He began to orally skim through the highlights of my PET scan results, starting with a normal-looking spine. Just as I was letting out the largest sigh of relief these former tuba-playing lungs could hold, he mentioned a 7 mm node on one of my lungs. "Tiny" and "bright" and "7 millimeters" are the only details I remember. He said that it could be an infection related to my epic sinus infection, and that it's small regardless of what it is. He said that my normal Dr. Oncologist will discuss it with me on Wednesday.
Logic tells me not to worry, because there is a very good chance that whatever it is is related to my sinus wars, or my recent surgeries, or my recent radiation therapy. My goal is to have that worry under control by tomorrow, and this post is, as always, therapeutic. This morning didn't I say something about Living, and happiness, and no need to worry? Time to go re-enact some Ring Around the Rosy.
