Scans on Monday

Postby trbiggins » Wed Jun 03, 2015 9:48 pm

Going to New York City Monday for scans. The wife and I plan on riding bikes in Central Park Monday afternoon after the scans. Country boy going to town! Prayers, good thoughts, good vibes appreciated. You can even swing some chickens if you're so inclined. Thanks in advance.

Good luck buddy, make sure to give yourself time for a little fun. After my first post chemo scan we went straight to Monterey for a long weekend. Best.

Why thank ye kind sir. I have a tendency to grow up people but don't call me Wart
because that name's already taken.

Seriously, you're not up with our Douggie and Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy?
What about Monty Python?
Church of the Latter-Day Dude? (I'm a High Poohbah, printed off my own certificate and
everyfing).


My avatar is cool, isn't it? Swiped it from some physiotherapist/chirowanker website a few years back.
I love anatomical art. But more about me later when the drunk wears off after I eyeball my onc.

My apologies to the trbiggins for OTing the topic.

Richard,

Wish your scan shows significant shrinkage of the mets.

Prayers and positive vibes coming your way!

Don't worry about hijacking anything. I own nothing. BTW, why the towel?

As long as you're not going to Kenya the room towels should be fine
