             It's almost Happy Birthday! time.  I can't believe that I am in my 70s and will be 71 in about a month.   
             It's time for my annual MRI but I haven't made an appointment, yet.  A case of mild fear and trepidation is setting in.

Hi Marie, Very interesting story. I remember when I woke up and was told they had to leave some tumour and I thought am I going to have to do this every ten years? Yikes! You are an inspiration, thank you for sharing your story with us. I know you are going to have to have your MRI again but keep in mind you are not alone- you have us. Thank goodness for technology.
