Great news!

Still no evidence of disease to report - awesome news. I am thrilled since this last test freaked me out because of all those other findings by the neurologist.

The PET is indicating that my thyroid is toast just as they suspected would happen due to radiation. I will follow up soon but am excited to think there is a reason I am gaining all this darn weight.

Me and the little z's are headed to my dads to camp and hang out for the 4th with family. Enjoy your holiday!

Another PET

Going up for another PET scan today. I won't know the results until next Thursday since my doc is out of the office. The waiting is the worst but hopefully it is good news.

I will post with the results as soon as I have them.

Father's Day

I made this video for Dave as a father's day present. I promised my dad I would post so he could see the kids. Enjoy!

Remind me never to have a meeting on Friday 13th again! Not because we had awful results but we had to wait FOREVER which is torture when you are waiting to find out if your cancer is back. Anyway it was somewhat no doctor needs to scan my slides in to do some exact measurements but from just looking at it he does not think it is cancer. In the meantime we wait for these exact measurements to verify and I also have a PET scan in the next couple weeks. The PET would say for sure if the cancer is back. I got some meds for my pain due to the crap on my spine and he is hooking me up with physical therapy to help my walking. Actually he said a lot of people are very successful with the physical therapy and can walk normal again - that would be nice.

So more watching and more waiting which is the story of my life. I am completely mentally spent when it comes to these tests and waiting on the results. I am not big on patience nor do I do well with the unknown. I just need to continue to put my faith in gods hands and pray that he is going to take care of me.

I will keep everyone up to date on the medical stuff once I know more myself.

Enjoy the weekend and have a wonderful fathers day!

Back from Vieques

We are back from Vieques, PR and had a fabulous time. While I was away there was a glitch in my test so it has been postponed until this Friday. I will then meet with the doctor the following Friday for results. I am not happy that it is Friday the 13th but it is the soonest he can see me so I won't reschedule.
Here are some of my favorite pictures from the trip.
