quadragenarian: (n) a person between the ages of 40 and 49; not commonly found among GBM patients who were diagnosed in their thirties.
Today's MRI scan looked "beautiful", in sharp contrast to my roots that need serious touching up (Carlos has been booked solid). But hey -- at least I have hair! And the little gray straggles remind me that I will likely reach quadragenarian status on Wednesday (assuming I make it home safely in traffic)! We'll have an early celebration tonight.
