All Clear it is!

Today was my CT Scan to see what my system has been up to.  I checked in, drank the required lemonade flavored liquid, not real sure why that does, but I drank up.  Instead of a PET scan, had a normal CT scan with contrast.  I always look forward to getting finished so I can go eat, but since it was so close to lunchtime, I decided to get a snack and just wait for lunch.  Had a busy day at work, and didn't get the text when it came in, but my oncologist texted me that all was clear.  I cannot say how much that means to me that I get a text from my doctor telling me the results.  Certainly a great feeling, especially for the continued good results.

One more round to go, then into the unknown....

Today's round of bubbles went well.  Did a good deal of napping, but probably needed it.  Was told my calcium was low, and needed to get some to help build me up.  I guess I haven't eaten the best, so thats my fault.  If it isn't that, I will take some vitamins like they said and have that help me out.  Last round of bubbles will be at the end of the month, and a PET scan coming up.  Will see what it tells me.

Bubbles number 7

Two weeks ago, my third ride in the Bike to Beat Cancer was a huge success.  I had over $1500 in sponsorship, and rode the 35 mile course without any real problems.  No flats, now that was a relief.  The course was 36.5 miles, and what started as a rainy day ended with the sun out.  Awesome day.
