On Friday we received the results of our PET scan and they confirmed what we already knew. The cancer is in the esophagus, lymph nodes, the junction between my stomach and my esophagus and some on my liver. The good news is that there is no cancer in my bones, brain, lungs or blood.
We received that uplifting news after spending the day chasing biopsy slides, cat scan film and other items requested by MDA. They want the stuff brought in our hot little hands on Monday. We also stopped at the Porsche dealer – that Cayman is really sweet. We got to see Houston traffic at its worse – probably spent 2 hours extra trying to get from one place to the other. That’s why I’m buying a paddle shift automatic.
I plan a quiet day today and church and football on Sunday. I don’t think either of the teams I like will make it though Sunday (Saints, Colts) but one can hope.Monday we visit MDAnderson at 11:00 and have several appointments and more lab work on Tuesday. Our hope is that by the end of next week, we'll know our treatment plans and begin to settle back down into some kind of a routine.
Have I said lately what a great support my sweetheart, Verva, is? Sainthood might be appropriate.
