Thanks for your prayers, folks.

The Docs unexpectedly decided to go in this afternoon; something was showing up where they weren't looking - third time's a charm.

This time, I was awake through the procedure - like a Jeep off-roading in my lungs.

Definitely gets your attention.

Now, waiting again for new results.

Doc came in the room this morning.

Some good news to share is that he didn't find any cancerous tissue in my lungs - good deal, I say.

He says not so fast.

There is something in my lungs that is showing up that they haven't been able to identify, so he asked me if I had ever ingested anything metallic.

Well, I have an aortic heart valve but that's a known object - this is something of a mystery.

Who knows - all I could think of would be lead shot ingested from eating a game bird.

Well, he says they will continue looking with x-rays, and/or other scanning devices to identify the source.

Stay tuned, folks.

Looks like I'm out of the woods.

They still need to identify something they aren't sure about but that will come though more x-rays and/or a C/T scan.

All they have to do now is get my Coumadin level therapeutic and I'm outta there.

Thanks for the prayers - they do work.

Good news, I'm finally out of the hospital today, and am cancer-free!

Good deal. Thanks for the prayers.

One more procedure left and I should be on my way to being 18 again! :laugh:
