Subject: RE: BS: Curmudgeon Fell -- On Way to Hospital
Good morning, all. The famous trained(?) cat alarm clock got me up by noisily "playing" with everything on my nightstand AND standing on top of the humidifier and bopping it.

Tom mentioned something interesting when I made my "goodnight" call to him last night. He said the doctor overseeing his treatment suggested that he get a second opinion from Mass General while we were there regarding his narrowed carotids. Seems his vascular guy is confused by the results of his Friday angiogram. And the composition of the placque seems to be calcium (does he know about Tom's history of kidney stones?). The vascular guy told Tom yesterday about that, said he might order some more tests after Tom got back from Boston (and his postponed cancer surgery).

So Tom (or I, depending on Tom's phone access this week in the nursing facility) will get in touch with Dr. Z's office for a referral -- they had offered to do that in December.
