We have been on pins and needles the last few weeks, waiting for the outcome of some health issues. When I was in the hospital in Temecula, California back in mid-November they said an ultrasound found a cyst on my left kidney. They did a second ultrasound and said it was a mass and I needed to follow up with the VA hospital in Tucson. I asked them what the difference between a cyst and a mass was and they really could not explain it.
The VA scheduled an MRI for Dec. 31, and we finally got the results yesterday afternoon. Good news, the MRI did not show the “mass” the hospital in California said was there. It did show 3 nodules on my left kidney, one on my duodenum, and one in my lung. But at this point they don’t feel there is any cause for concern and that they are not cancerous.
So we are breathing a huge sigh of relief and counting our blessings right now. We still have a lot of miles to travel and a lot of adventures waiting for us, and we can’t wait to get to them. We appreciate everybody’s prayers and good wishes during this difficult time.
A storm system is sitting on top of Tucson and we had heavy rain all day yesterday, with very cold temperatures. In fact, by afternoon the snow was more than halfway down the side of the Catalina Mountains. We’ll sit still for a few days until things clear up and then we plan to be on the road, headed toward Florida, with some stops along the way. We really need to scratch our hitch itch.
