Re: Good News RE: CT Scan!

I finally got a message from my oncologist yesterday about the results of my CT scan. It seemed to take a while, but I figured that the longer it took, it meant that it was good news. In my experience, they call you quickly with bad news - because you need to begin to take action ASAP - whereas wit...

Re: life getting scarer.

I'm in my 30s, but the reality of what I could be facing in the next 30 years is a little daunting. My coworker who hired in the same month I did always jokes that we will have to work 50 years before we can retire ("Only 48 years, 2 months, 5 days left to go!").
