Admitted to the Hospital

So I’ve been admitted to Emory University Hospital.

They’re needing to do a bone marrow biopsy, echo cardiogram, full body CT (I think CT)* scan, and larger surgical biopsy of the tumor. The doctor thinks I’ll need to be hospitalized through this week. Hopefully I’ll be out by the weekend.

Also, they gave me morphine. I thought the morphine would totally annihilate my pain, but it’s not. Although I care less about the amount of pain I’m in. That’s kinda progress.

[*Edit: After talking to a couple doctors here, clarified it isn't going to be a full-body CT scan but a PET scan.]
