    Next discouragement–started an antibiotic today. Postponing the scan and the biopsy and the visit with the oncologist because I won’t have been on the antibiotic 24 hours by tomorrow am. They “don’t think it is swine flu” but call tomorrow if worse or Friday if NOT better.

    Louise,
    I am thinking of you and hoping for a good result for your PET. I had mine yesterday and must wail until next Wed to get the results. Waiting is the pits because it take up a lot of time but for me it is one of the disadvantage of living in a rural and remote area!!

    I am sending lots of prayers.Wendy

    Well, now I have another concern. Today, the radiation oncologist also had a look at the CT scan, I guess. I had been released from the care of the radiation department, but now they want me to have a needle biopsy, with ultrasound. There are spots on/near the liver that ould be just reaction to the radiation I had in March, but the scan is not clear. So, at least the Drs. are investigating some more. While I am relieved that they are on the trail again, I hope they quickly find something minor to explain all these “minor” irritants.
    Your prayers are appreciated!
    Louise :)

    Louise,

    I have never prayed for laughter before but it seems as good a cause as any, perhaps the world would be a better place if everyone prayed for more laughter! I am going to throw in a P.S. for your strength, energy, peace, and a good PET scan, please keep us posted.

    Louise….I think that all of us had to deal with these worries in fact, a very good friend once said: “Every ache and pain I encounter immediately lead me to believe that this cancer is back”. Many of these instances turned out to be only distantly related to this disease but, rather were attributed to other things such as infections, etc. I am wishing for the Pet-scan results to be nothing but, positive.
    Many good wishes coming your way,
    Marion

    In August, I had a CT scan and we decided to do another in 2 months because there were shadows that could have been mere scar tissue. Today’s scan had enough similarities and differences that the onologist decided I need a PET scan this week to try for a clearer image. A part of me is relieved that we are on a hunt again because I’ve been having a number of minor things like daily temperature fluctuations from 97 something to 99.8, sleepiness each evening, not sleeping well at night, aches and pains in various places, cramps in legs and feet, bowel changes, headaches–luckily, no jaundice. Any one of them alone probably wouldn’t mean anything, but when you put them all together, I have to wonder what is going on.
    In the meantime, I need to get my grading and posting all done as this semester is almost 1/2 over already.
    I could use love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness—wait, those are gifts of the holy spirit! Please pray for me to have strength, energy, peace and laughter.
    Love and prayers to all.
    Louise
