Had the PET Scan Thursday morning and asked them when I could call the doc to get the results and they told me he would have them in a few hours but I should wait until yesterday. I dashed from that area of the hospital to the coffee shop next door for my long awaited coffee. I had to rid my mind of the scanxiety so Katie and I went to Harrah’s casino where I met up with my youngest brother so we could put on a show at the crap table. I walked away with over $700 of their money so I found a temporary cure for scanxiety. Yesterday morning I called the doc’s office at 8:30 and the receptionist told me they had the results and the Physician’s Assistant would call me midafternoon after she was done seeing patients with the Doctor. I told her that she would have to leave me a message because I had contract negotiations with two companies from 1:00 PM until well after 6:00. I was with the first company when my cell phone vibrated so a few minutes later while one of my guys was trying to convince the company we needed another personal day I checked the message that I knew was from the Doctor’s office because of the area code. She said all clear no sign of reoccurrence. I holstered my phone and it must have been obvious with a huge change in my demeanor and the Operations Manager asked if I just received some good news. I replied with yep, I just found out I’m going to be a Dad again. Their side of the table looked at me kind of puzzled while one of them said congratulations. I said SHHHHHHH you guys can’t tell anyone, my wife doesn’t know about it. Then I told them just kidding I received the all clear from test results. We didn’t get the additional personal day but frankly Scarlet, well you know the rest.
All I have to do is get through what I hope will be a half day at the office and then I am off to the beach for a week with my Lady Katie, two of the kids and their youngens. You are all invited to come join the grandkids who have plans on burying my ass in the sand. Like I said previously, I will be recognizable, I will be the one grinning from ear to ear. Life is good
Thanks all for your thoughts and prayers.
Enjoy today.................it's practice for tomorrow
