Thank you, Tricia! I wish you could have been there, too. I wish you ALL could have been! The flight from L.A. to San Jose is just about an hour. I picked Ilene up at San Jose Airport, and we went to a beautiful shopping center nearby called Santana Row. There are many restaurants, coffee shops, etc. The shops are outrageous--things like Gucci and Burberry--so it's window shopping only. The nicest part is all the outdoor space and places to sit. In one area, there was a guitarist on a stage who played all afternoon. It was so nice.

My dear friend Tammy is having an ultrasound tomorrow. I was a good friend of her mother, Linda, who died of ovarian cancer 12 years ago. Tammy is in her 40s and is like a second daughter to me. She and her 13-year-old daughter are like family. Anyway, Tammy had a mammogram, which came back normal. But the Breast Center has a new ultrasound machine that is supposed to be better, and they want to get used to it, so they offered her and others a free ultrasound. She had it last week, and she got a call saying that she should come in for a standard ultrasound because they saw something. They told her it could just be some malfunction of the new equipment, but she's nervous. I offered to go with her, but she said no. So, if you have some good thoughts to spare, please send them her way. Thanks!

Thanks so much for the good wishes! Everything is all right. The radiologist spent a lot of time with her and reassured her that the areas they saw and that have caused her pain are just premenstrual pockets of fluid. So now she has some good baseline studies. She is SO relieved--as am I!
