Health Update

This morning at 10:15 I'm having another MRI scan of the pituitary gland. This procedure is just precautionary. When a small, harmless tumor was detected at this time last year, it was recommended I have a follow-up scan every year for three years. Here is the first.

I don't expect that this test will reveal anything troubling. Other levels to indicate the presence of something problematic have not shown much. Some people have issues with claustrophobia but fortunately those haven't been my own. I find myself more annoyed than anything during the scan. I have to keep my head motionless and at a strained position while inside the tube.
