Not the news I wanted....
So confident, so ready to have an amazing summer, so ready to be done with cancer. But cancer is a funny thing....... The CT showed two tiny tiny spots on my left lung. They are not sure if it is scar tissue or if it is cancer. The PET will give us better information. The good news is that if it is cancer, we will probably cut it out and be done with it. So, here is what I am thankful for.......the PET/CT office has to call the insurance company BEFORE they can schedule the PET scan, they did at 4:15 (Chris - thank you for getting right on it! Holy COW man!), and amazingly the insurance company waived the preapproval. I know, I was like, "WHA?!?!" but I am going with it. PET/CT scheduling answered the phone at 5:06 on a beautiful Friday afternoon to schedule my appointment. They offered me a PET on Monday, but said, "You know, it is going to be a fabulous weekend, do you really what to not eat on Sunday???" TUESDAY it is!!! My prep starts Noon on Monday. In 50 minutes, I was approved and scheduled after hours even. The lung surgeons office has been called to review the CT scan. I feel the wagons circling and I could do without the attention, but I am so so thankful for it, them, everything. Yes, I am disappointed, but I will get over it. What "it" can't take away from me is this beautiful weekend, Mason's last T-Ball Game of the season (he is getting a trophy!), a play with my Mom and Aunt (I hear it is awful, but I am with them, and we may ditch and go shopping!), the sun, and quite frankly....ME. Have a great weekend and enjoy the weather! Love, Ang
