Scan Coming Up In April

In some ways I am very excited and anxious about my CAT scan coming up in April. I mean, it could give me the peace of mind I have been seeking. I am glad my blood work has all been good. I am glad on paper I appear to be in remission...but it's a tiny bit nerve wracking to have had no other scans to prove it. Not to mention the occasional heart flutter I had. I am glad I'll get the ECHO to make sure that all the excess fluid that had been in there is gone. I am not so nervous right now because you see, I only get that way about 2 to 3 weeks right before my appointment. At this point my appointment is scheduled for April 24th. I am sure by then I'll be good and worked up and I'll absolutely need all the comments and thoughts I can get. It's hard to think sensibly when it's YOU going through it. It's nice to hear a voice of reason now and again. It's normal to be scared, I know. There is a healthy limit to that fear though and I think I definitely exceed that limit near my appointment times! I am not looking forward to that part.

I have some medical tests, too, coming up in the next weeks - one each week and then the "unknown" in April. I guess the lesson to learn is to take each day one day at a time. I learn and unlearn that one. My thoughts are with you - waiting is so hard!

I saw your blog post on momblogs and followed the link. I am glad I did.
I pray all goes well in April. I am sure it will.
I always think there must be a lesson to learn when god does this.
I am just not sure what it is.
take care and i'll send my prayers your way.
