I'm Doing OK

My follow up is tomorrow and yet, I am doing ok. I normally go into full on panic mode before these check ups. That's not to say I haven't been feeling different symptoms. I think I always do I am just much more aware of it right before a check up. My ECHO is at 11 a.m. For those that haven't been following that long I am having an ECHO because while I was sick I had a whole lot of fluid around my heart. The doctor said it was all part of the tumor/Hodgkin's but initially they were all quite panicked that it was a preexisting thing which scared me to death. They decided it would go away after I got better but they never have checked. I am hoping to get a good result.

I am also having a CAT scan. My last scan of any kind was February 2008. I have had good clean checkups since then but that's just blood work. It all comes out great. So this time I am having an actual scan. I am pretty anxious. I have a feeling they may be able to tell me more about my thyroid too which has been enlarged for years. They used to blame it for my symptoms which is why I went so long misdiagnosed.

Anyway I am pretty anxious yet doing remarkable good. I am not feeling too insane today. haha My day will start very early as we have a very long drive. I may not get back around to the blog tomorrow so I appreciate all thoughts and prayers!

I have followed your blog for quite some time and, I must say, that I admire your strength. I was my sister-in-laws caregiver at Hope Lodge (Cleveland Clinic) for 8 weeks when she developed host vs graft disease after a bone marrow transplant. She was strong like you...I was a mess! I will be thinking of and praying for you during your tests! God Bless.
