Saw my oncology nurse this morning. I've been recertified for another three months, with no more tests (other than labs) for 6 months. Kind of makes me feel like a fire extinquisher-they check and retag them yearly and they have to be inspected and marked every month.

There were no changes in everything that was CT scanned-thyroid, lungs, spleen, pancreas, what's left of the liver, mild fluid retention where there is no gall bladder, lots of clips where there was once a kidney, etc. etc. The new radiologist did notice the metal spots near my bladder....those were the screws that backed out of the plate holding my ribs together after they removed gall bladder and 1/2 liver. The only thing that is not encouraging is the fact that the disk betwee L5-S1 is deteriorating even more; but I'll deal with that another day.

For once, in the 6 years, I didn't get really anxious before the test. And the Outpatient Infusion room/hospital provided lunch with yummy chocolate cake. Almost worth the visit.

So now I can hang back and cheer everyone else on.

I tried to post a new pix. The theme for our local Relay for Life was "superheroes", hence the wild background fabric.

Had a Greeeeaaaaaat Day. Best to everyone.

Donne Lee,

Since your pic has not shown up I don't know which super hero you were, but Wonder Woman would be very apropos.

You are a true hero in my book,

My brother was a Professor at Auburn U for over 30 years and I have to give him a bad time, expecially now that their football team is struggling.

I appreciate the good wishes from everyone.
