Dark Side of Being Cured of Cancer

I just saw this depressing story on ABC News about how chemotherapy and radiation treatments in kids causes health problems later. It says that it causes osteoporosis and that kids treated should get bone density screenings in their twenties. I already have borderline osteopina so Little T has a double risk factor. :(

Oh well, I can't really worry about it not. Mostly I'm recording it so that maybe someday I'll remember to tell Little T in his twenties. Man it's hard to think about him being that old. I'm still amazed at him walking.

Well I tried some about five years ago, but my neurologist said there are some new ones.
