Checking in and asking for prayers

Options
Hi All,

Haven't posted in a while but have been trying to keep up with everyone. I am thankful for and pray for all of you daily. Sweet, I am sorry to read you are dealing with health issues. Will send extra prayers for you and all that are having difficulty now.

Pats 2 year scope looked fine. Two year PET is October 12. Scanxiety for me is nearly debilitating. Please send prayers for good results.

Thanks to all of you for posting on this board. Many times coming here has saved my sanity. (Well I guess that's arguable lol because it assumes I was sane to begin with).

Love you guys and thank you.

Myka

    Energy on way
    Myka, sending positive thoughts to you and Pat on the 12th. I went to counseling for a couple of months post treatment. It didn't do me much good--but as I healed I began to feel better; but one thing the counselor told me I hang on to. He reminded me that we don't really control much in our lives, only what we put in our bodies, and how we act.
    That fact helps me with scan time anxiety, hope it can help you.

    best, Hal

    Hi Myka
    I will send good thoughts to you on the 12th. You are on my calendar!
    Keep the faith, the Dr's know their stuff. Besides after all the crap we've been through, we deserve a clean scan after 2 years...I'm at 18 months, so I 'm right behind you...
    sending prayers,
    Steve

    good Vibes coming
    Don't know either of you but sure do understand the anxiety. I am coming up on 9 months.
    My doc says 2 years is a magic number....
    hope you both can keep busy till results are known and as my good friend Randy says, keep the committee out of your head.
    I am sure many will be anxious to hear the results.
    Peace, Nancy

    Yes, we are all familiar with the anxiety associated with scans. It never seems to go away. Praying you will have a clean scan on the 12th. Karen

    Hi Myka
    Like almost everyone else here, I know how you feel. I usually get wound up before a PET, then the day of the PET, I'm strangely calm and distanced. Good the hear his recent scope was clear. Looking forward to a mid October "Woo Hoo" report from you.

    PRAYERS AND POSITIVE THOUGHTS HEADED YOUR WAY
    A prayer from my family to yours.

    I can relate as I have an exam and scope 3 weeks earlier than originally scheduled to look at an irritated and swollen area near my wisdom tooth. I so hope it is not "here we go again."

    Thinking nothing but positive thoughts for you and the family.

    Best!!

    Scanxiety
    I knew I could come here and not feel alone. Sorry to hear that we all suffer from the anxiety of checkups, but realize the alternative could ne much worse. You guys get it. Thanks for understanding.

    Mike - praying with all my heart that the wisdom tooth is nothing serious.

    Thoughts, good energy and prayers for all of you.

    Scanxiety
    I can definitely relate...

    I had my two year scope several months ago now, but it was definitely a high anxiety time.

    Usually it always seems like something is going on around those same times....

    So far so good with mine...

    Thoughts and Prayers for a good clean scan for you guys as well.

    Best,
    John

    Anxiety
    Hi, Myka. Best wishes and prayers headed your way for you and Pat. I certainly understand the high anxiety as I am going through this as well with a scan coming up in about 3 weeks to see if my current chemo is working or not. Hang tough.

    Prayers
    Hi Myka,

    I am new here but I know my GOD can do it. I had throat cancer and finished my last radiation treatment in February 8, 2011. My pet scan was completely clean and i saw the ENT today and he took his camera and went in my throat and said" your throat is amazingle clean. No signs of anything tha tdidn't belong." Will be glad to send prayers your way.
    God bless you and yours.
