      Time again for my 3 month CT and MRI this Saturday. I have more than the usual amount of anxiety this go round given the stories in the news and a close friend of ours loosing her battle.   We were blessed last month that my husband's scans (kidney cancer) came back clean.  We're hoping to make it 2 for 2 with mine.  That would be the best Christmas gift of all.   Any of your good vibes or prayers would be welcomed at this time.

                      Hi Rocco,

                      May you indeed get good news on your scans and you be thus wrapped in the blessings of the Christmas Spirit right through the new year. My thoughts and prayers go out to you.

                      “I heard the bells on Christmas day…their old familiar carols play.
                      And mild and sweet the words repeat…Of Peace on earth, good will to men.”
                      Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1863)

                                      I'm praying and sending good vibes for 2 for 2 as well.  Sometimes that anxiety can get the better of us.  I know you'll be NED but I know you want the proof.
