Just Wednesday

This morning was my first ever (but hopefully one of many over the next 40 years ) PET scan. It’s not the worst thing I’ve had done in the last four months by far, but it does serve to validate my thought that people who are prone to claustrophobia should not get cancer! It is a teeny tiny tube that you spend twenty minutes (or hours) in.  I had intended to take many pictures for you but truthfully there was nothing to take pictures of. Very boring. 

I had to go to my old haunt the Chemo lounge to get my port accessed so that they wouldn’t have to try and do an IV on my fragile veins. The Chemo neighborhood is always fun because everyone just walks by always telling you how good you look. 🙂

I would certainly never want internet in my car, it would be far to tempting and dangerous for me, but I would like a button that I could push that would send a posting to facebook or twitter that says I love this song!, and show you what song I was listening to.



I don’t remember the buttons on my radio being reflective. I will have to investigate this when I go back out. 


Yay! Went to Yoga tonight.

  1. When will you get the results?  How are you doing?  Waiting is hard.Very cool display on your radio!  Yay for songs that you love.

  2. I’m glad having your port accessed does not bother you unduly.  And I hope that they will just eventually tell you that you no longer NEED PET scans, as they just did, H.  After years of a gradually decreased schedule of scans, he was finally told in November that he doesn’t need to have them – unless of course, he has any symptoms.  They are not without risk themselves, of course, so we were glad to hear that.I have never heard of the song on your “reflective” radio!Kathi

  3. that would be a cool button to have! Good luck on the pet scan results!! hope they don’t make you wait too long to hear…they have to be good, your body fights well! 

  4. @skanickadee – Two weeks. I go back to my oncologist at the end of the month and I can’t believe they would give them to me before then. 😦@Still_groovy – Thanks Kathi. I am glad that H is just done! Right now the thought is terrifying to me. I’ve spent so much time and focus on this the thought of just stopping is inconceivable. Sort of like letting down your guard.@strawberryfieldsgirl –  Thanks Tami! 

  5. At this point, I would want them all of the a security blanket.  I can’t imagine ever getting over that feeling.

  6. @Ninasusan – that is exactly how I feel. I feel the same way about my port now. Even though I am not (lost the word – insert your own!) by nature I somehow feel like if I get my port removed I will immediately be told I need chemo again. It was really painful recovering from the port being put in, and it is quite uncomfortable having it, but it’s a reminder every moment that I am vigilant and fighting back.  Maybe I’ll feel different if the PET scan comes back clear. Though with my inability to think clearly and my extra tiredness lately I am now preparing to hear my doctor say it’s in my brain. Argh! And I am the positive one, right?

  7. @tracy – Oh Tracy – I read that last bit to Nina – that is so hard to have to wait and wonder and worry.  Poor kid.  This whole situation brings out the mommy in me and I just want to give you a long hug and tell you it is going to be ok.

  8. @skanickadee – Thank you. 🙂
