Horrible nightmares!

I woke half a dozen times last night out of nightmares about doctor visits and CEA results. My CEA is tomorrow (Mar. 16th) and I've been totally at peace about the upcoming blood tests and then scan in a few weeks but when I sleep........

This will be my first CT scan since late Feb. '09 and CEA since Dec. '09.

I believe in prayer and would appreciate prayers and good thoughts for good reports and peace during the 'wait'. My onc visit is April 6th and that's when I'll get my results.

    Hey Diane - I hate
    Hey Diane - I hate nightmares, but I guess it's a healthy way for our subconscious to "process" our toxic fears, the same way our body can process toxic stuff. I'm meeting with my surgeon tomorrow to find out if surgery is an option. We'll just have to breath together today and be patient. Sending you sparks of peace and hope for good results.

    Prayers on the way
    Sorry to hear that all these things are keeping you from getting a good night's rest.

    I can relate...when first diagnosed I went to sleep thinking about it, dreamed about it and work up thinking about it. Fortunately, as I made my decisions, it got better, both in the awake state and the sleep state.

    Praying not only for good results on all the test, but also for better sleep.

    Prayer for Peace
    Diane,

    You know I'll be praying for a great outcome on bloodwork and scan. I will also pray for peace to overcome you until you get the results. Don't let the devil sneak in! He can so easily. he causes disruption and confusion. Peace comes from God.

    I know that this isn't news for you, just a reminder.

    Love always,

    Kimby
