Ah, yes the dreaded scaxiety. I think everyone gets it and it is the most gut-wrenching, frightening feeling. It's because such a big part of our future depends on the scans. This is how we handle it: If it is good, that is awesome and we celebrate. If it is bad, we dig deeper for more strength and fight it. We have had bad scans with Lauren, and we are devastated for about a couple hours, cry and get it out of our system. We talk to her oncologist and come up with a new plan. I remember I told him once, please don't ever tell us there is nothing more you can do. So far, he has not! I hope so much that your scan does not show progression. Take care and please let us know.
My beautiful daughter, Lauren Patrice, will live on in my heart forever.
