Popping Cancer Update: This might not be good news.

We got word today that the item in my right lung is not pneumonia. The five day cultures didn't show any growth, according to the doctor.

This means there is something in my right lung that is keeping me from breathing. I don't like having unknown things in my body, because they've never turned out to be good, or even benign. Either way, we have to do something relatively quickly before my breath stops completely.

I should hear from the pulmonologist tomorrow. I have to gear up for a trip for bloodwork to the oncologist Wednesday, which right now seems an impossible task since just walking across a room leaves me gasping for air.

Too bad the pulmonologist doesn't, you know, have a truck like the ice-cream man.

If he did, what song what he play?

Dan, I'd like to suggest that you ride in the car or take the local flavor of mass-transit to the pulmonologist office. Or perhaps Mrs. P.C. could take the wheel of a tandem bike, or maybe a rickshaw? Walking there seems like it might really wear you down. Just lookin' out for you, man!

You're continually in our prayers!
