- Dressing for the speaker’s meeting last night, I changed purses. I didn’t want to wear baby blue with my dark green pants, I wanted a medium brown. It was heavy when it should have been empty….and there was my camera filled with happy flower pictures. Oh, there was joy in Mudville last night.
- More joy in LA too. Mikey’s PET scans and CAT scans didn’t agree. It appears that PET scans see heat as glowing. Not only are cancer cells seen as heat, so are injuries.

His scapula, ribs, and hip are all glowing in the dark. He will know more today, and next week he has appointments at UC Norris Cancer Center and The City of Hope.

But I did have a bout of dizzyness at Amvets and at the Cancer Society this last week. Not the dust, I think, but the Febreeze that all thrift stores use to cover bad smells. Just a thought as nothing else bothered me all week. Then again, thinking isn’t always a good idea.
