WAAAAAAY ahead of all of you on dh’s overall health picture

He had a very complete physical in Nov. Then this Monday, when he was diagnosed, he had another complete work up, just to be on the safe side.
His heart is excellent (both physically and emotionally). The doctor did do chest x-rays and he said dh’s heart looked PERFECT and he was looking for heart problems. The pleurisy and some minor scarring on dh’s lung were the only problems they turned up. The scarring did not surprise us. Dh was in Viet Nam and was exposed to Agent Orange he has also worked in oil fields on and off. So scarring was not a surprise at all.
Doc J. said that except for the pleurisy dh was in excellent health. I already an expecting a return call from doc though from where I reported yesterday’s episode.
