My dad went in for his bloodwork last week. The creatinine was still too high for the CT scan so he has an appointment to go back this week and check again. This waiting is driving me crazy! But the doctor seems comfortable with the time scale we're working on right now. He said its not a particularly fast moving form, so we don't need to worry about anything drastic happening between now and when they can get a good picture of the whole thing. Plus, if he gets it now, the iodine might kill him. So, you know. Worth the wait.
Came across this video about a girl who wanted to learn to dance in a year. It's impressive.
