      Finally got the results of Dirk's CT scan last Wed.  It seems that the there is growth in the lymph nodes in the groin area. The lungs and liver are the same as two months, four months, ago, etc.  no change.  

      This may seem like a stupid question:  Could the nodes just be larger cause he is fighting off shingles?  

      Don't know enuf about this…It seems like every time he goes to UCLA, they care a little less…he feels like a lab rat!  I can't get answers to my questions.
