Let's Hope I'm Not Jinxing It

I'm still alive. I went to meet the radiologist yesterday and then had my Dr squeeze me in so I could get checked out. She gave me some antibiotics just in case, but they thought it was probably just a virus. I'm still coughing like it's my job, but I've been popping sudafed, antibiotics and advil pm - so hopefully I'll feel better by the end of the weekend.

On a brighter note - I went and got my PET scan today and had the guy give me a copy of the scan to bring with me to Dana Farber in a few weeks. So I was just sitting around my apartment and was like, hmmm I wonder if the disk will open on my computer - and sure enough, it did! It's kinda creepy to see my body as it's pictured in the PET, but the good news is that I didn't see anything lit up on the scans. Obviously, I'm no expert, but I couldn't see anything except for my organs!!!!! Hopefully I'll find out more on Monday- at the very least my Oncologist will look at it by then and hopefully give me some insight! My fingers are crossed super tight for good news, but hopefully the good things have already happened!!!

I'm off to go relax for a bit. Think happy thoughts until Monday - then check back for updates!!

PS the picture I posted is not my scan, but it shows you what they typically look like.

Very good news re your Pet scan and we will keep everthing crossed here for you too. Keep taking the tablets and hopefully by now you cough may have cleared up a bit.
