800am — 1/2 mile east of DF – MRI of abdomen.
930am — 1/2 mile south of DF – CT scan of chest.
1030am — DF 2nd floor – blood draw.
1200pm — DF 9th floor – vitals.
1230pm — (actually, more like 230pm) — DF – Jen and Dr Eric.
The best part was that my fit bit logged all this racing around and counted it as a full day of exercise! I got a bonus day-off.
Scans showed that, yep, my recent pain was that pesky cancer again. I had been hoping for a cracked rib. Have you ever had sneeze pain, like from a fractured rib? You sneeze and think, oh, just-kill-me-now. I had that pain ten years ago, when the cancer first appeared on my sternum, but when I started treatment the pain magically went away. Recently however, the cancer on my sternum has grown something like a billionth of a millimeter — and this minute adjustment makes me beg for mercy if I feel a sneeze coming.
So, the good news is that I get to stop my current meds.
Other news, next Thursday I start a new course of chemo. This particular chemo has been described to me as about as burdensome as drinking a glass of water. Will let you know!
