Mr Koffman, I presume?

“Maybe it’s another cancer,” I offered.  “Oh, no – I’m sure it’s not,” the nurse replied.  I’ve been coughing quite a bit since about Christmas.  So much that the guys at work agreed I should change my name to Koffman.  When I saw the doctor, my blood counts were very low.  I may have a virus or infection.  She prescribed antibiotics and a chest x-ray, and said to come back next week.  Upon returning, still coughing, I was told to get a CAT scan.  There was a dense area on the chest x-ray the doctor wanted to learn more about, possibly a ball of cat hair that has reached critical mass (my probable diagnoses, not hers).  What ever it is, we will soon find out, I will be adding a new doctor to my list of doctor friends next week when I visit the Pulmonary Associates.
