Brief update

Kate's lung biopsy has been scheduled for November 18th. Dr. Guber thought the new bleb, nodule, in her lung is most likely part of the scarring process of her lung disease, not a malignancy. A ct scan scheduled the first week of November should tell the tale.

Her weight is consistent in the 100 pounds + or - 2 pounds range. Her spirits are good after the yucky days she mentioned below. We had lunch yesterday with Susan Marcus and dinner with Jon and the grandkids. A good day. We preceded her presentation on joy last week at Congregation Beth Evergreen with a commitment to finding the joy in the every day here. We've kept at it and have found it a good soul practice.

The feeding tube has matured. Her nightly feedings maintain her weight baseline while assuring her of good nutrition. More when there is more.
