More intriguing medical news yesterday. (Well, intriguing to me, anyway.) The results of my CT scan came back. They showed nothing scary, thank goodness, but they did show a "mild thickening" of my airways, which is probably why I have the persistent cough that I do. The doctor I spoke to said this was a subjective reading and not a sign of ongoing illness, it doesn't require treatment and there are no indications it would become worse. It could be a "post-inflammatory" response or maybe it's just the way I'm built.
So that's an explanation and a reassurance, which is what I really wanted.
She also said I have a small cyst on my spleen -- pretty common and also nothing to worry about. What is it with me and Dave and our splenic abnormalities?
Anyway, I'm sure that's more than you ever wanted to know about my organs, but when you read a blog you take the bad with the good, right?
I don't have much else to report today. Here's our library Christmas tree. It's smaller than in years past, and a bit more minimalist. A parent volunteer decorated it for us, which was very kind of her, and made the popcorn-and-cranberry garlands. We decided it was a retro theme -- kind of '50s.
