Re: [MOL] tests/Martha!



That waiting is the worse part of it all, I think.  When will you hear the
results?  Know that you are in my prayers, your friend, lillian

>Afterwards, I got up and saw the attendant looking at my pictures on the

>than it had took before... and I wanted to know why.  Luckily, the doctor
>was nice and came and talked to me.  He said what do you know----I told him
>I know about the spots I said above.  He said I was right, that's what they
>saw and they didn't see anything else.

>If only they didn't glow on the damn pictures so much.  What about        a
>nice little pinpoint flashlight glow?  Or what about no glows?  I feel like
>knitting a blanket around myself, getting into bed and staying there the
>rest of my days.

>While I'm in the blanket, I'll wait to hear from the doctor.
