Last Medical Update for 2021

I told you that we flew back on the evening of Wednesday, December 29th. Thursday morning, I spent the whole morning doing all sort of stuff at the hospital. I had blood work done first thing in the morning….got my lupron shot (remember that big, long needle? Yeah, that one…right in the derriere.), got my port hooked up to my zometa infusion (my once every three month bone med infusion), then scooted over to the radiology department for a CT of my chest, abdomen, and pelvis with and without contrast. I wasn’t feeling too great with all the extra junk that had been put into my body that day. I managed to go to an evening zumba class to try and get my blood moving and actually still wasn’t feeling too good. However, I think I just needed to flood my system with water…so downed a liter of water that night and then the next morning before my next zumba mega end of year class and was feeling much better. I have to admit that I am always a bit nervous when I am waiting for my CT scan results. I have never felt my cancer affecting my life…it has been the side effects of all the meds I am on fighting the cancer that actually rear their ugly heads and make my life miserable. I always have that thought in the back of my head that it could be spreading and I wouldn’t even know it. I was stage IV and didn’t even know it. I have a zoom meeting with my local oncologist Monday late morning where he will tell me the results of my scans. I haven’t ever had this happen before….I have always gotten to read the results myself first online, so I am a little nervous. I have to keep reminding myself that there is nothing I can do and worrying doesn’t help. However, there is also the little voice in the back of my head telling me this might be the scan that puts me on a new chemotherapy and ends my freedom for doing a lot of the things I enjoy. Anyhow, in 48 hours I will know and be dealing with whatever the results are. I will also have a zoom meeting with my sarcoma specialist at the Mayo Clinic early on the 13th. He calls the shots and he has been great to work with thus far. So here’s my latest treatment photo…the last one of 2021. Still a miracle I am here and as healthy as I am. I thank God for each and every day and opportunity to live my life to the fullest!
