Waiting on Results
Last week was just great! I was able to attend some of the state dental convention in Salt Lake, & then had my sister come spend the weekend with me. I also had a CT scan last week of my chest, & it showed that the tumor in my breast has shrunk quite a bit. Yea! Today I had a CT & PT scan done from my head down to my knees. They put some radioactive sugar into my blood stream, & then did a special scan. They bring the solution into the room in a titanium syringe, and then I had to stay by myself for 45 minutes because of the radiation. Apparently, cancer cells really like the radioactive sugar & take it in, so then they show up on the scan. My oncologist & breast surgeon ordered the test to see whether there is cancer in any other areas of my body besides the breast. I guess this will help them determine whether they will go in & remove the tumor or not. I go in for my 8th chemo treatment this Friday, so hopefully I'll hear the results from Dr. Prystas at that time. As always, I am so very grateful for the blessing of prayers & healing. And can I just say that I am loving this spring weather? It is a wonderful time of hope & renewal, & I am feeling that in my heart. Love always, Kim
