    "Hello Clarice"

    It starts flat and they dunk it in hot water and then stretch it over your face and lock it to the table. Afterward it's stiff, but somewhat flexible. No claustrophobia for me.

    Perhaps I can get some for my legs?

    That's creepy looking! Next thing you know, the doctor's yelling "It's alive!!!!"

    When I was getting my PET and they inject you with the radioactive sugar solution I REALLY REALLY wanted to have an Alka-Selsa in my mouth and start foaming and have my eyes roll back and start jerking around.

    But somehow that seemed like a bad idea under the circumstances.

    You could walk around the hospital with the thing still on your face and tell people, "I will devour your soul!" (Hellraiser reference) :)

    Juni - don't be inspired - some days I'm only getting by on gin and tonics and considering moving to an island and saying to hell with it all - then the gin kicks in and I willing to live until the next drink....

    And the Red Sox are on a ten game winning streak and Pedro pitches against Becket tonight, but if they lose....!!!!!

    Wishing you all the best with your coming therapy killing off the nasty little bastards.

    It's amazing what modern medicine can do.... I had no idea you could make a mask out of fish-net stockings!
    Seriously, good luck on the treatments. I wish you nothing but the best.
