Thanks so much for writing Jessie and Bob. And thank you for your support.
Hey, I'm just your everyday truth seeker with an odd sense of humor, that's my motivation.
During my CAT scan an English speaking recording came on and instructed me what to do. I liked that. My CAT scan appointment was at 8am, I was out at 9:30am and caught the bus back home at 12:30pm. Socialized medicine in action.
I'll find out all my test results on the 5th when I see my oncologist.

idiots anymore." –Jay Leno
