Meanwhile, in the good news department....
My mother-in-law passed her lung exam at the University of Washington in fine style. "See you in six months!" said the doc.
I had been rather apprehensive about this visit because I had never been to this facility before. But between directions from my wife, suggestions by my brother and fine tuning by "mom", we got there on time in spite of the traffic and congestion, it was a piece of cake!
Speaking of cake. The VA called and told me the tissue samples from my thyroid are benign!!
