Mom's CT scan of her lung -- because she had something noticed on a CT scan for some other issue back in February or January -- has come back as "compatible with primary pulmonary neoplasm" with a recommendation for a biopsy. The scan notes something that might be mucoid impaction or bronchopneumonia (follow up in three months), and structures "compatible with ... pulmonary fibrosis."

I think of her years of coughing....


I'm holding off on any cancer worries - biopsy is next. But reading about the pulmonary fibrosis and considering her history of coughing.... The average life expectancy after diagnosis of pulmonary fibrosis is four years, says the internet. I wonder about cognative decline and small mercies.

What will be will be.
