Ignorance may be bliss, unless it’s ignorance about the results of a test that should be available but are not, like the results of Friday’s bone marrow biopsy, about which we are as ignorant today as we were yesterday.
We are slightly less ignorant about the results of yesterday’s CT scan. The scan neither confirmed nor disproved pneumonia. It did confirm, however, some fibrosis (fancy medical word for “Scarring”) of the lungs. Fibrosis is permanent damage that is a consequence of the carnage that occurred immediately before and during the Onslaught.
Aaron’s cough is about the same. He is helped to standing several times today. He swallows capsules of Tessalon Pearls, another attempt at suppressing the cough. After the initial novelty of drinking a couple days ago, drinking is of only moderate interest.
Like a forest after a fire, Aaron’s hair, which never fully fell out, now shows signs of re-growth.
