On Thursday I heard from Dr Ken Stewart’s office. It appears that he will be my first oncologist contact. I will have a telephone consultation with him on 18 August. I don’t know what we will talk about because I won’t have my PET scan until September, but I shall certainly speak with him. Such is life under socialized medicine on the North Korean/Cuban model. On Friday I had a lung function test here in St Albert; no results yet. My lungs functioned well yesterday when I went for a 4 km walk along what is left of the Sturgeon River after several dry months.
