i still have to review the results with my oncogist, but my other doctors are pleased with my scan results. new pulmonologist said it was even better than the previous scan.

i’ll be calling my oncologist in the morning to make sure he has the report and to schedule a follow up.

met the new pulmo and gp today. pulmo is lowering my prednisone, yeah! said my lungs sounded great and looked good on the pet. new gp is very thorough and left my brain swimming. both are very nice, though!

monday, the pet specialist will read my scans.  i should hear something that day.  i’ll be sure to post as soon as i do.

tonight, nugget and nugget daddy are sleeping in nugget’s big girl bedroom (aka, the guestroom) because mama is radioactive.  this means i get the whole california king bed to myself.  well, myself and the two cats.  i hope they can find some room to squeeze in.  the steroids are doing wonderful things to my physique.  i’ll share with you my lastest self-portrait.

to… mor… row… tomorrow!

right now some of you are appreciating that more than others.  some of you are also doing choreography in your chair now.

tomorrow is my pet scan.   it’s at 10 am eastern time, at the hospital for which my uncle is chief of radiology.  he’ll be having his best pet specialist read it and i’m sure we’ll have the results as soon as he can get them.

so in the meantime, i’ll return you to your regularly scheduled blog reading and holiday preparations as a distraction.   i do hope you’re enjoying some egg nog and the occasional cookie, or three… or four.

nursing is continuing to go well.  nugget’s taken to exclaiming, “mama, beebies!” when she’s inclined to nurse.

 

happy holidays to you and yours, from bitsofmyself, nugget and nuggetdaddy!

 

here’s the big news:  as long as my next pet scan is clean (like the last one was) then i’m done.  no more chemo, no radiation.  done.

what this means for us right now is nugget can nurse again.  amen!

tomorrow is the day of my, as my friends and i like say, “come to jesus” meeting with my oncologist. nugget and i will be making the trek up to nova and then are spending the night with friends.

i have no idea what the outcome will be from this appointment. maybe i’m done with chemo. maybe not. maybe i’m getting radiation. maybe not. i guess we’ll all find out tomorrow. i’ll be sure to post a quick update from my crackberry once tomorrow evening.

wish me luck. pray for me. chant. do it all, i need whatever i help can get.

 

phew!

thanksgiving was amazing, but now that all eighteen of our guests have finished the two turkeys and our four houseguests have safely returned home to their own, it’s back to regular life here at chez nugget.

yesterday, i painted the laundry room restoration hardware dusk in anticipation on the arrival of our dryer from lowes. they keep calling us to postpone. damn it, i need that freaking dryer and it had better show up today! the ceiling will be graphite. i also painted the linen closet on the second floor dusk.

our mattress is scheduled for delivery today as well.  no more sleeping on the twin mattress on the floor in the middle of the california king frame, fun as it’s been and all.  (and no more couch or guest room for nugget daddy.)
