PET Scan Canceled

Hi folks. Just a quick update to let you know that I had to cancel my PET scan for tomorrow because I'm soooo sick. There's thoughts that it's strep throat. The entire left side of my throat is swollen and I can't swallow or anything. Oh and I'm running a 100 degree fever. I thought about going to the ER but was told it could take hours and I don't feel good as is. I'm such a baby when I'm sick. Ugh.

hope you feel better soon. i don't blame you for not going to the ER at all...i got snookered in to going last week and it is miserable on top of already feeling like crap. cuddle up instead.

Ugh......sorry to hear that. Strep throat is no fun at all. Eat plenty ice cream, I say and keep taking plenty of fluids. Hope it passes soon :0(

Thinking of you..........Vx (and W sends one his hugs!)

I'm soooo sorry you feel so bad. I hope it goes away real soon, it's no fun being sick. It will be over soon! Lots of fluids, etc, etc!

Open invitation to you and your readers to participate in the Being Cancer Book Club. This month we are discussing “The Last Lecture” by Randy Pausch. “...the lecture he gave ... was about the importance of overcoming obstacles, of enabling the dreams of others, of seizing every moment (because “time is all you have…and you may find one day that you have less than you think”). It was a summation of everything Randy had come to believe. It was about living.”
Monday is Book Club day; Tuesday Guest Blog and Friday Cancer News Roundup.
Also check out Cancer Blog Links containing almost 200 blog links and Cancer Resources with 230 referenced sites, both divided into disease categories.
Please accept this invitation to join our growing cancer blogging community at
Take care, Dennis

First-time reader/poster here - I sure could have used a blog like this when I was going through my battle with the Hodge back in 2006. (Stage IIb with mediastinal involvement - I suppose it's a good sign that I actually had to think hard to remember that, right?) Sorry you're not feeling well - keep up on those fluids, pop a few Advil or Tylenol, and rest up!
