Topic: Teddy Update

Hi Family...I just got his PET Scan scheduled for next Tuesday. I told them I am having surgery the 1st, his CA9-19 jumped up, the Rad Man wanted the PET this month and I got him in for  the 22nd. This way we will have results before my vacation in the hospital. Sometimes its a wonderful thing to feel so powerful.:):)  What I don't understand is no matter how great the doctor, I have yet to find an office where the schedulers follow up without a call from the patient. We are on our way once again. Upward and onward.

Re: Teddy Update

Janet...don't let a few miles stop you!!! We are set. Teddy's PET was yesterday and I left a message for the RAD Man that we need results by Friday as I didn't want to go into the hospital next week and leave Teddy alone to hear any news. I am not really worried about me, I just want these twins delivered!!!! I hate this tired feeling all the time as that's just not me.
Thanks for the message, much appreciated.

Re: Teddy Update

Lainy,
  We are all waiting with you - waiting for you and Teddy to get through all this stuff, and back to normal (uh-oh - here we go with this "normal" stuff again!) . You are right - aggressiveness IS good when it comes to our health care system.
