PET scan

PET scan round 2 is finished. Lara and I traveled to Indianapolis this morning to have the scan. As soon as I arrived I asked the technician if he could tell me the results of the scan as soon as we were finished. I am very eager to know. He said he is not supposed to do that and I will have to wait to talk with my doctor. That wasn't good enough for me. I wanted to look at the computer screen myself after the scan although I probably wouldn't understand any of the images anyways. We will have to wait until my next chemo on Thursday to talk with the doctor about the results.
I have spend the last couple days relaxing and trying to gain strength back from the last round. As I get closer to my next chemo I treasure each day and each minute I feel "normal."
I receive comments every day regarding all the prayers coming our way. Thank you. It's pulling us through. 4 more to go.
I will blog about the PET scan once we get results and once I recover from the next chemo.
I am going for a motorcycle ride. It's too nice out.

It would drive me crazy having to wait as well! I am sorry, that must be annoying. I'd probably also want to try to read the computer without any technical knowledge :p

well hopefully the results are good, and you continue to feel well! I'm still praying for you :)

I was wondering if you could mention the names of your wonderful careing doctors?

I'm the same way, Luke. I drive the technicians crazy when I want to look at my x-rays, scans, & such. Then I drive them crazier when I start asking questions that they're not suppose to answer. :-) I consider that as being involved in one's care, and that's a good thing!

I'll pray that you go into your next chemo round on Thursday after hearing good news about the PET scan.

Enjoy your ride & rest up.

It would definitely drive me crazy too if I had to wait.

Definitely treasure each and every day. We only live once, so we need to make the best of it! And you seem to be doing that!

I hope you enjoy your motorcycle ride today! It's pretty nice over here too!

Wishing you all the best,

I'm sorry you have to wait for the PET scan results. That would make me so irritated.

I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers of your latest PET scan and the next chemo treatment.

I hope you enjoyed your motorcycle ride yesterday, and that you spend some quality time resting and relaxing :)

Best wishes, Marilyn.
