Welcome! Read Me!

This blog is created to give you a central location to answer any questions you have about my current and upcoming treatments and reactions. It is also created to help me make Lemonade out of the Lemons I have been given, so I will keep this as positive as I can.

Better News

Well, Sometimes patience is not my strongest attribute, and sometimes it gets the better of me. With all of this "Hurry Up and Wait" stuff  I am being tested. I may be passing by the skin of my teeth... Maybe...

The good thing about time, though, is that it passes and you don't have to go back and feel the stress of that time again. I am just going to let it go.

So... Where are we now???  After the Great Hub-Bub with the Port on Thursday, and deciding that it is much better to have it paid for flat out instead of having to pay for it out of pocket,  I was able to get in on Friday and get it taken care of. I am excited to have that part behind me. It is a little sore from the procedure, but more sore because I have limited motion in my neck. It is like a forced "crick" in my neck. I go in on Tuesday for them to check the site and make sure that things are ok, then I will get the stitches out on the 4th just in time for Chemo to start on the 5th. So I have a beautiful bandage for all to see  for a while, but that is a small price to pay to avoid the constant needle pokes that I have dealt with up to this point. My veins are not always great, so to not have to deal with that is going to be WONDERFUL!!!

I am meeting with a Lung specialist on Wednesday to discuss how we will be able to best get the Biopsy result that we need and not have to go through the fiasco of no results next time. This will delay the result a little but I am again going to try my test of patience and instead of rushing into it will opt for having a result instead of bunk.

All in all I think things are turning out ok. I wish I could figure a way to get my Biopsy result sooner, but I can't... So we will keep on moving forward and do what we can with what we have.
