Scans tomorrow . . .

17 Jan

Hello All,

Tomorrow I will have scans. I check in at Hoag at 9:30 am, tests to begin at 10:00 am. I should be be done by 12:30 pm.

I have been very anxious about having scans. And, while not really planned, I have been keeping a low profile (sorry, I have been doing pretty much only what I absolutely have to do and not much more). It has been very busy the past month or so . . . now back to work for the first time full time in a long time.

It has been an adjustment. But, it is coming along and for that I am glad.

So tomorrow’s challenge – aside from just getting through the scan experience – is getting through the IV placement for the brain MRI. My veins were always an issue during chemo and Herceptin infusions (treatments ran double time because my veins were small and as a result could not handle the average infusion rates).

I am anxious about the IV and whether they will be able to successfully place it and that my veins will hold up.

And, I am concerned about the results. I am obviously hoping that everything goes well and that I get good news.

This stuff is draining. There is a fear that accompanies these tests that can be paralyzing at times.

So, hopefully all goes well.

Please say prayers and/or send positive thoughts my way. I greatly appreciate it.

Much love and peace,

      Thank you Sandy! It worked! Not only did the IV go well (which is rare for me) but, I just got the scan results back – in the same day – and the results are great!

      Much love to you,

    I’m always thinking of you, Lisa, and praying for your recovery. Sorry there’s these bumps in the road. I hope the veins do well, the scans are better than tolerable and the test results are very positive.
