Apple & Tree: Me and my neurologically challenged Buddy.
I have a benign cyst the size of a thumbnail in my brain. The medical professionals in my life say it's probably been there for years, isn't pressing on anything, and needs no further attention except for a follow-up look in three months. (I got the impression that was so I wouldn't sue them if in fact my head exploded in the meantime.)
I also have an amazing set of pictures of my brain, including the spot in several shots, that I'll be scrapbooking this weekend. Oh, except for the part about scrapbooking.
(Oh, I also have "minor sinus disease" and a couple polyps in my sinuses, but who's counting?)
Thanks for caring.

From the NYTimes:
Along with an enormous entourage and a message of peace, the Pope brought with him to the United States a lifelong love of cats.... His house in Germany [has a] garden guarded by a cat statue.... And Benedict is, without a doubt, the first pope to have had an authorized biography of him written by a cat [“Joseph and Chico: The Life of Pope Benedict XVI as Told by a Cat” (Ignatius Press, 2008)].... Ms. Fredericks [cat-loving Catholic fan of the pope] said she thought that the pope would benefit from continued contact with animals. “I think every church should have a cat colony,” she said. “But I don’t think that will happen.”
