This is just a quick follow-up to my health status, to let you all know that my latest MRI scans came back with quite boring results — meaning, no visible reoccurence of the infection nor of the tumor.  Though I’m feeling some weird symptoms, those (according to my doc) are fairly typical after all the weirdness I’ve had going on up there the past few months, and shouldn’t lead to panic of any kind.  Good stuff!  Thanks for your encouragement & prayers.
