CT Scan Today

Well believe it or not, I ventured out in this weather. If you're not from the Edmonton area, we are having some severe weather. The temperature is -14°C but feels like -29°C with the wind chill. Apparently, the snow is done for today but the winds are still crazy. The weather man just said ... another storm for tomorrow.

Anyways, my CT scan was 9:15 a.m. this morning and everything went well. I chatted with a nice lady that was in from Cold Lake. We talked quite a bit about cancer and how we dealt with it. I'd have to say we had a lot of similarities in our thinking.

As I sat in the waiting room, I always people watch. Today what stood out was that there was two young men waiting for scans. One was with his mother and talked about how he was missing school ... not sure if was high school or college and the other young man looked like he was in his late 20's. They both looked like they were strong, vibrant, young men ... but with cancer. If it wasn't for the chemo hair ... you would never think these young men were sick. It was kind of sad.

My plans for the remainder of the day are to stay in and stay warm.

Daria one of the hardest things for me about cancer is seeing the young people. That would have killed me to see those young men today.
