Like most situations involving this disease, my sense is that this challenge could go well, medium or poorly. So be it. Them are the facts of life and there is no changing it. I've been very fortunate so far and can do nothing more than taking my drs. advice in preparing and hoping for the best. My doctors think I have a good chance of having a positive result and I look forward to that.
