The Sorta Good And The Crappy

Well folks, I've got some sorta good news and some crappy news. First let's start with the crappy news. I just found out that I didn't get the job at Dana Farber and it went to an internal applicant. I'm really bummed because I thought I was perfect for it and it was all finally going to happen. But alas, someone already in their system got it. 

Now for the sorta good news. I talked to my oncologist the other day and he gave me the results of my PET scan. He said it doesn't look like Hodgkin's, but it looks like there's something in my throat - most likely an infection. But he sounded weird about everything, he's a pretty serious guy anyways, so I'm not sure what to think. Either way, I've got to get rescanned in September at some point so I can be officially clean again. So for now, I'm taking it as I'm clean with some sort of leftover infection from my bout with strep or whatever it was last month. 

I'm still on Block Island and the weather and fresh air is perfect. I just got back from walking my lazy pup and am probably heading to the beach shortly. Might as well enjoy the vacation while I can :)

Dear Kelly-

I'm sorry you didn't get the one at Dana Farber. I know you're going to find a good job soon. As for the PET scan, I would just assume it's strep or whatever and just move on. Stupid PET scans.

Aw Kel, sorry to hear you didn't get the job!! And, I'm hopeful the PET scan is fine too, am sure it's probably just your bout with strep! Enjoy your vaca!!

Damn Kel. I know how much you were looking forward to that job. I'm so sorry that they decided to take someone from the inside. I can't imagine how frustrating the job market is right now -- and I know you have a ton of patience... Just know, I'm thinkin' of ya.

Glad the scan was clean enough -- hoping for many, many, more clean scans. And that you're enjoying block Island.

Sending Love,

I'm sorry you didn't get the job, but now you're available for another glamorous job around the corner - and you're beach-babing it up for the summer!

When you're back, let's have another girl date.

I really need to catch up because I haven't been reading any blogs for a while.

Sorry about the job. I hope something better comes along for you soon and that all your tests turn out fine.
