No news is good news

I haven’t written in forever, and I apologize for the lack of updates.  Its been miserable weather all summer in Maine, and pretty much I’ve been working, watching jeopardy, and sleeping. Nothing too exciting. Treatments have been going all right– I had been having good results with my blood wok, the PET scan in May showed that things were shrinking substantially, I had been bouncing back from treatment in one-two days… smooth sailing it felt like..

But now everything’s on hold. I have another lump. Its in the same place as the first, smaller than it was in Feb. but bigger than it was in May.  I went in for chemo on Friday and the doc saw it and said we couldn’t continue chemo until we know what it is. So I went in for a CT scan, but the scan was inconclusive… so now I am playing the waiting game again. I have to have another PET scan at the end of the week and by Friday hopefully we’ll know more.

Needless to say this news is frustrating two months from being done and now this.  I am staying positive of course, we are not certain what this is… It did start showing itself around the time I started getting this cold this summer so who knows it could be related to that, but its hard to speculate not really knowing.

I’ll update again when I know more. But for now send positive healing thoughts my way! I know that I’ll beat this darn thing eventually, it just looks like it might take some more time than I thought.
