Actually, at least one thing DID get better today. My wife has been having some severe gastric problems lately that stem from stomach bypass surgery she had a couple of years ago. She had a perforated ulcer about 6 months ago and we almost lost her. An endoscopy about 6 weeks ago showed she still had a serious ulcer. She had a followup endoscopy this afternoon and (Hallelujah!) the ulcer is gone! The doctor had planned to re-do her gastric bypass if it hadn't improved, so we've beat that one for now.
I'm still scheduled to see the oncologist in about 3 days to discuss chemotherapy for my lung cancer, so don't abandon the prayer ship just yet.
On an unrelated note, I noticed a digital sign on our way back from the hospital that announced the current temperature was +266° F. Strange, it didn't seem to be that hot.
