good cat scan results

I had a cat scan on Wed. It started out as a terrible day. It took me 2 1/2 hours in the rain to get to the hospital. It normally takes about an hour. When I got there I had to "P" so bad I almost didn't make it to the bathroom. I started the cat scan drinks and then they tried to get my IV in. The IV was difficult so they put hot towels on my arms. As I was sitting there with a lamp on my arm to see my veins, the lamp burned my arm a little. As they were still looking to find a vein the oral contrast started working. EXPLOSION. And with a colostomy it wasn't pretty. Three nurses and six tries later and no change of clothes I had my IV and then my scan. I then went to see the ostomy nurse and learned to irrigate, So far so good.

I work in radiology and got the disc so one of the docs I work with read the scan.

I did meet Judy for lunch and had a lovely time. She's the first person the site I met in person.

I will be 3 years out from my stage 3 rectal cancer on June 26. I am doing the happy dance.

I feel great, it has been a long time in coming.

That's great news. I am very happy for you. You are so lucky you were able to get your results right away. My dad had his scan yesterday and we won't find out the results until Monday. What torture!!!

Congrats Mo!

Omigosh that did sound like the nightmare day! But it definitely turned out beautiful. You've got another notch in your belt, less weight on your shoulder, and a longer exhale!!

Woot woot!
