Doing better, but nervous

So, the sinus infection is a bit better, but I had to no show on my dental appointment. Who knew I needed "clearance" from my oncologist to go to the dentist? Is there anything I can do without my oncologist? Shelly, my dental hygienist for the past gazillion years, called me last night and said, "Did you get clearance for a cleaning?" I was like, "That wasn't in the 4200 page do and don't handbook for chemo." BTW - there are a lot more don'ts than dos. When I didn't get a call back from my oncologist, I figured my clearance was DENIED. So, I will ask today, but I don't think he realizes how much I love the dentist and my dentist to be exact. I do. I totally love going to the dentist. Even my dentist thinks I am odd. She doesn't like going to the dentist!!! Go figure that one!!! Anyhoo, just another thing I am learning on the ol' C road. As for me, I am nervous. I thought I wasn't, but then I burst out into tears and started telling Grant to tell the boys that I love them more than anything. I guess it comes out one way or another.....only time will tell. Cross your fingers and toes. Love, Ang

Dear Angela, My fingers and toes ARE crossed for you! My husband, mom, mom-in-law, and sister-in-law, not to mention colleagues at work, are all praying and wishing positive thoughts, and thinking of you today. I don't know what is involved in a "scan," so felt terrible to learn that you get injected with something that makes you nauseous. Yesterday must have been awful. Is there no end to the pain and discomfort for you? I wish so much to take some of it for you....Sitting at my desk, I will say a prayer that you will have a good day, and see good results. You are so strong! You are such an inspiration! You are amazing! WE LOVE YOU,

Ang - just wanted to let you know that we've been thinking about you a lot this week. Well, we do every week, but more so this week knowing that you might be anxious for your scan and the results. Sending you the very best and positive thoughts. Hang it there - your strength and resilience is what is helping you beat this.
Love you lots - C C & B
