Awoke at 5:45 am when the alarm went off but I didn't fall asleep until 2 am so a bit out of sorts when I woke up.
I got ready to go. We got the kids up and told them they needed to leave the house at the right time to get to school as we had to leave earlier to get the lab in time. They did it.
We arrived at the hospital and I got ticket number 1 for the lab. Good- the results would be done by the time we met the doctor. The lab nurse took my blood and sent it off for analysis. Now we had to wait two hours until the doctors appointment. I had forgotten to eat breakfast so I ordered 3 Swedish pancakes and ate them with no problem at all. Then Peter and I went up to the Hematology waiting room which is usually much calmer. We passed the time and then it was our turn. The doctor was a new one for us. It is the third doctor I have had appointments with.
We came into his office and sat down. I let him tell us about the results of the cat scan. I had been counting on it being 100% gone and anything less was going to be a disappointment. The mass has decreased by 90% in terms of area. That is good. My blood results were great! We talked about the next three treatments and then what tests will be done at the end to make sure that it is gone. The tests will be a pet scan and a cat scan. And I told him I want the central line taken out too. All of this should be done before we go to the USA on Midsummer weekend. I will do my part to make sure it happens.
Dinner was easy and then Peter headed off to the dump to get rid of some of the junk we have accumulated.
Now it is chocolate chip cookie making so the nurses are happy tomorrow. My two youngest helped this time with the baking. (I think it is because they like licking the bowl after)
Wow, no line at the dump, Peter is back already! The smell of the cookies is filling the house. I think I have done enough for today.
LOVED. 90%. REAL GONE. CHEMO. KICKING CANCER'S ASS. FRIENDS. FAMILY.
