UPDATE: Ive since met Melissa and Ade.  At the end of our master class weekend, they performed this piece for me and a crowdful of teary-eyed dancers.  I gratefully count Melissa as one of my friends.

here’s a super exciting behind-the-scenes look at me getting a dose of the radiopharmaceutical fluorodeoxyglucose, more commonly known as FDG or 18F, prior to my PET scan today.

today is my first scan on the every-six-months track.  it takes a few days for the report to trickle down to me, but i will post the results here.

fingers crossed.

today is world cancer day.  what are you doing?

j’adore dance project dancers at jump dance convention in dc can get a free kid-size here is a heart bracelet from miss jenn michelle!

just spoke with my oncology nurse. my oncologist says he sees no change in this week’s scan from the last.

i have a pet scan at vcu massey cancer center this afternoon.   so, today’s theme song is “fingers crossed,” by allison weiss.

allison has these awesome purple “fingers crossed” bracelets for sale here with all proceeds benefitting the trevor project, the leading national organization focused on crisis and suicide prevention efforts among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth.  i suggest you snag the bargain priced 2-for-$8 value pack right now.  go on.  i’ll wait.  thanks!

now, while you’re waiting for your super cool do-gooding bracelets to arrive, why don’t you watch allison’s “fingers crossed” video?

wasn’t that totally amazing?

hey!  you can download “fingers crossed” for free right here.  why don’t you go check out the rest of allison’s sweet merch and downloads, and find out when you can catch her live in a town near you?  but not with like a net or anything.  you shouldn’t try to physically ensnare her.  just buy a ticket to her show and enjoy her performance.  sing along, clap loudly, browse the merch table (bring cash!), perhaps thank her kindly and then be on your way.

oh, right, the pet scan… i’ll start nagging for results as soon as the report is available, which is usually the following day.  i’m sure doctors love when patients do that.  and as always, i’ll let you know what i know when i know.

i’ve got my fingers crossed.  hope you do, too.
