Topic: Holding my breath again!

Hi, everyone.
It's been a few weeks since my last update. Radiation was finished 6 weeks ago. Tuesday I go for my follow up CT scan, and Wednesday I find out if things have settled down enough to see how well the radiation worked.
All the prep work was done for my resection that was cancelled in April, so I'm hoping things have shrunk enough to reschedule it SOON!! Or better yet, the radiation eradicated the cancer cells! Wouldn't that be great? Praying for surgery, tho: it's a little more feasible.
With the good things going on in my life, I'm expecting nothing but good news on Wed., but still the scanxiety is starting to set in.
So if you pray, please add me to yours. My prayers are so long anymore that I always fall asleep before I get to me!! sad   Too many people on my prayer list, unfortunately. I wish that wasn't so, but I won't stop praying for all of you.

Kris, you are so in my thoughts and prayers all the time. And no matter what, you always make me chuckle. With an attitude like yours you have to win this fight. So, instead of counting sheep to fall asleep you count prayers for others and that sounds mighty good to me.

That's ok Kris. I got you covered in the prayer dept. Best of luck on the scans, but I know they will be good.

Re: Holding my breath again!

Thanks Pam, Lainy and Lauren.
Lauren: the CT scan will be in Basking Ridge NJ and the dr. appt. is in NYC at MSKCC. Both day trips. Hopefully the weather is nice on Tues. so I can ride the scooter and save some gas!!!

Re: Holding my breath again!

I hate the anxiety that comes with waiting for scan results!  I wish you the best!

Re: Holding my breath again!

At least this time I only have to wait a day. Last time it was a whole week, and it drove me crazy... I just pray Dr. K. took my rant into account last month and has a plan in place when I go in on Wed. The one thing I DON'T want to hear is "I don't know what to do with you."

Re: Holding my breath again!

Thanks. I'm extremely nervous about this one. I don't know why... maybe because in March I got so much bad news at one time so now I'm nervous.
Just praying that whatever plan God has for me includes good news and me living for a while longer!!!
