Waiting for test results

Well, I had the follow-up PET/CT scan as planned. The one that was going to give us the all-clear after the summer’s radiation treatments and this Fall’s chemo.

The scan showed six seven small spots on my lungs. I don’t know when I’ll get in to see the oncologist, so I don’t know anything else. I don’t know if they’re tumors. I don’t know whether this means more treatment. I don’t know anything, really. Which is at once terrifying and full of hope.

I do see my primary care provider this afternoon. If you pray, would you please join me in praying that it’s only an infection, or something easily fixed?

    Praying… always praying… but you knew that, didn’t you, honey.

    A bump in the road, kiddo. You’ll handle it like you’ve handled all the other bumps… by walking up & over them. You still got the stuff to do that, within yourself. Forge ahead, no matter what the “ahead” turns out to be.

    Show em how it’s done, Susan.

    Love~ Andrea

  65. Kelly says:

    I am sorry for your latest worry, Susan, and that you have to wait for answers. Unfortunately, with your lungs, the answers will probably not come quickly and you will most likely have to wait until the issue resolves. With your personal history with cancer it is so easy to think about a spread of your cancer, but also as likely that it is non cancer related. If many went in for a lung scan today, many would be worried that they have cancer. I will continue to pray for you here in Minnesota that your lungs are battling what many are battling this time of year.

  66. *m* says:

    Hugs, and hope, and every good thought.

    Sending as many good thoughts and best wishes your way!

  71. My girls will be participating in a special liturgy today at their “Atrium” class for the celebration of the Epiphany. As I watch my children (who are learning to love God) I will offer up prayers for you, your lungs, and your family and ask that your light continue to shine.

  72. whymommy says:

    Thank you. Thank you all.

    I’m overwhelmed by your kindness.

  73. Yes indeed Susan, praying! Me and my church friends also.


  74. Kristina Baumler says:

    Sending you lots of anti-cancer vibes and big hugs to one of my favorite Relay speakers.

  75. Joining your and your supportive friends.

  76. Alice says:

    Prayers, many gentle hugs. Cancer cuts through so many families, mine included. So, no pity, ever….. but may throw a toddler tantrum?
