Another day, another MRI

Another MRI, but Sarah, I thought your Dad JUST had one and was on a six month reprieve.

Well....that's what we thought to.  He had an MRI the end of January, after a heart episode.  He was told he would continue MRI's on a six month basis, versus the three month basis.  Imagine my surprise when I got a call from Dad confirming his appointment for April...April...that isn't six months.  A call to Mom to confirm the doctor actually ordered the MRI and not some computer error yielded this result: Dad's doctor looked at the films a second time and decided he needed to come back in three months.  He did not specify if he saw anything unusual, or if the lesions are growing, but we know he 'saw' something.

So, here we are three months later on the eve of the MRI.  He has been chemo free since September 2011,(I think, will need to look that up), so in theory his is due for another round.  Large dark cloud looming overhead, hoping the Lord's wind will blow it away.
