Prognosis –  a glass half full, glass half empty sort of a word.  When teetering on the edge of fear, it can be chilling.  When filled with a mix of optimism and joy, it can be a springboard to a glowing future.  They want me to do another CT scan on Friday… to check out the pancreas and surrounding neighborhood.  Right now I am dancing with one toe in optimism and one in fear.
