All Clear!

So I took a chance to see if I could find out the results of my pet scan today.  The good news, I am still all clear and remission continues.  Why do I have an oh so familiar pain in my shoulder?  Thats the next step, not sure why, but it definitely isn't anything coming back to haunt me.  I will find out more at my appointment on the 10th, but for now, it's all clear still!!

Napping during a PET scan

So today's PET scan went great.  I only fell asleep and snored 4 times.  What do you expect for 6:45am show time. :)  I will have the results by the 10th of August, but if the onc changes that and calls me in sooner, could mean my hunch is correct and something is brewing in my shoulder again.  Hope to know more soon but most likely the 10th of August.

A challenge to the Watch and Wait

So I called my oncologist on Monday to mention the shoulder pain that has come back.  Naturally that could be a bad thing, but to be safe, they changed my CT scan to a PET scan and that is scheduled for 6:45am Wednesday, which is tomorrow.  I probably won't know the results until the 10th of August, which is my scheduled appointment.  So hopefully the results will be just the joints being tired.  :)  More news to come.

Almost time

It's almost time to go back for my next round of maintenance, and the first CT scan since remission.  Had a rough week this past week, and spent a much needed weekend doing nothing.  I would definitely rather be on the beach in Florida, but hey, sometimes you get that pulled out from under you.  So I had some fun at friends in the pool.  Tonight though, I hope that the feeling in my shoulder is from swimming and not an indication that some shoulder pain is coming back.  Unfortunately, it is the right shoulder that had the tumor in it.  So lots on my mind right now.  But all will be good.

Rounding the corner.......

August 10th is fast approaching. Very interested in seeing how things have gone these first 12 weeks of maintenance.  Still feeling great, doing good.  Just came back from a week in Fairview Heights, IL for work, and had some fun photographing around the Arch in St. Louis.  Gotta get bak on the bike training, September is right around the corner.
