Hi everybody. The oncologist's nurse called me and said nothing surprising on the Pet Scan which I guess is as good a news as it can get since this radiologist doctor says I have an 85% chance of getting better without surgery from the treatments. The nurse said both doctors consulted with each other about the scans and have agreed that the CT scan shows an "inflammation" in one of my lungs they will watch. This inflammation did not show up on the Pet Scan and that sounded important the way she said it. That was enough information for me. I have a history of asthma, chronic bronchitis and various bouts of pneumonias in my medical history so that sounds reasonable. We start radiation treatments on schedule Tuesday at 1:40 and then when that is done I go and get the chemo they give and my pump to carry with me all week. Arrrggghhhh! I am still feeling so much better after my surgery and gyn type scare I have gratitude still going for me. That's liable to all change though once the treatments start and there may be a lot of dashes in my posts for bad words. But today it's beautiful and I'm having lunch with a friend. Enjoying everything as much as possible.And thinking of all of you with gratitude and prayers too.
