After all the Tests…

Well, the week is finally over. I have had so many tests, and I can’t even begin to describe my week. It has been a roller coaster of emotions and full of needles, IVs and injections. I know that your prayers are reaching heaven’s door because there is a peace present in my spirit that I don’t understand. I should be a pile of mush, but instead I am sleeping, laughing, and looking ahead. I am on a doctor’s restriction not to lift anything over 15 pounds (Kai weighs 27), and now am radioactive and not allowed to hold Kai for any period of time over the next 2 days. It has been so difficult not being able to comfort, snuggle with, or play with my child – a source of my joy.

I have some good news to report from the CT scan and the Echocardiogram. The doctor called and said that the CT scan showed no sign of cancer on any of my internal organs. Praise the Lord! The technician for the Echocardiogram said that I have the heart of a teenager, so I guess that’s good news, too!

Today I had the bone scan…too bad it wasn’t the density scan. Instead, I was injected with radioactive material and then came back 3 hours later for the scan. I won’t have the results on that for a few days, but am scheduled to begin chemo on Wednesday at 8:30 am. I am going back to work on Monday and am going to try to work as much as I can. I know that some days are going to be harder than others, but we’re going to give it a shot.

Thanks for all your support and for all of the encouragement! We’ll keep you posted!
