Oh, Goodness. What a week. Bry has gotten sicker and sicker so we went to our doctor AGAIN, and to make a long story short, he has pneumonia. We figured that was all there was to it, got our anti-biotic and came home to rest.

This morning the doctor called and said they'd gotten the test results of his CT scan back and that it looks like there is a mass there in his lung besides the pneumonia. Nice. It's always pleasant to have good news.

Plus, why didn't they say that to us yesterday at the ER when we got the CT scan and they read it there? Who knows?

I know doctors are just people like you and me and are infallible but it is so frustrating for them not to just KNOW!

So, we are supposed to go in tomorrow and talk about it, set up an appt. with a pulmonary specialist and get this figured out. It's going to be a great day. I hope it turns out to be nothing. Our friend and neighbor down the road was just diagnosed with lung cancer. He's only 35. It is so sad.

Well, there you have it. That's what we have been up to. I'll let you know what we find out.
