Hello from the NIH

      It's been a month since I last posted an update and I've got a few hours until my scans, so I figured I'd say hello from the library here at the NIH. Not much has changed since my last post, I've been working a lot, going on bike rides a few times a week, and I actually went skydiving for the first time a couple weeks ago. It was pretty fun. And that's about it. As far as the medical stuff goes, I'm back here for my 2nd monthly-scans; CT scans in a couple hours and an MRI tonight.

I'll talk to the doctors tomorrow and see what the have to say. Hopefully the scans show something that results in good news. If so, I'll be sure post it here. Well, I hope you're all doing good and staying postive. I'll talk to you soon.
