      Great news.  Keep doing what you are doing.


      I have a question.  I was diagnosed in March and am scheduled for a Cat scan in 3 months.  I had a Pet/Cat & Brain MRI in May.  How do they decide whether to do a PET or CAT Scan?

      Also, when do they decide to do a blood test?  The only blood tests I had were for hospital surgeries or to check for various blood factors for trials.  I was not scheduled for any regular blood tests.
