Iffy but ok...

Happy 2021! Luke's scan results were more iffy than I'd like, but probably ok. 

There's an area of concern on a toe on his left foot - they think it's possibly an infection or inflammation related to a fracture. Extra eyes are looking at the images, and they did some extra bloodwork to look for infection and inflammation markers. His left foot MRI images are always complicated because they "radiated the heck out of it" (quote from a doctor) and because of all of the miles he puts on. No one seems to think it might be cancer, but I'm unsettled. 

There's also a new 3 mm spot on his lung. All they can do for now is watch to see if it changes - also unsettling. For many, these spots turn out to be nothing, but for some, they turn out to be something.

Luke says overall it's good news, and he made some delicious octopus to celebrate. He’s right, and I’m glad that he mostly leaves the worrying to me.
