Bad news

There were two things my sister might have had:  something called sarcoidosis, and lymphoma.  While both conditions can be serious, the sarcoidosis was the least serious of the two.  My sister even knows somebody with the condition who is continuing to work and live a normal life.

The Monday blood test results were inconclusive, and today Ann went to the hospital for a CT Scan.  The results from that came back, and she does not have sarcoidosis.  She’s going to have to schedule a lung biopsy and an abdominal scan next, to see whether she has lymphoma, and if so, how far along it is.
