[cancer] Back to cancerland

PET scan says probable liver tumors. I'm not able to interpret the medicalese sufficiently to determine whether lymph is also at issue. Now in Denver changing planes, on hold with my doctor's office seeking next steps. More when it happens.

In other news, a woman behind me collapsed in the boarding line in Portland. I was able to cushion her head, check for heart attack and stroke, determine she was lucid, give her a sip of water and get the paramedics rolling. An RN then stepped out of the crowd and took over from me. The woman later boarded the plane, so she must have been okay.

You win some, you lose some.
