scan day

scan day.

i check in a little after 10 for my iv (come on veins, cooperate please -- my right arm is still so bruised i think that i am going to get an iv in my left arm or one of my wrists today so that should be pretty exciting (in opposite land), and then go into the big machine about an hour later.

i then meet with my counselor (it definitely takes a village to make it through cancer, that is for damn sure) which will be good as always, and by that time, i will already be headed downhill and ready to head for home.

this scan, as they all do, feels huge.

will the one dose have done something? will it have at least kept the tumors from growing? will they have shrunk? is something else going on that is making my liver going out of whack?

monday we will know.

the best i can do for now is get through today, take some deep breaths, and hold tight to hope.

so i am ready to pick up the boxing gloves, head in and get this done.

time to get back into the ring again for another important round.

i hear the bell ringing, time for me to get ready. i know that sound so well by now.

thanks for all of the love, prayers, mojo and good vibes. as always, i carry them all with me wherever i go, my entire family does. i could not imagine going through this without a team backing me the entire way, i am so incredibly thankful for that on each and every day -- and even more so on the tougher days like today.

anywhere i fight, you fight.

here we go again. let's do this. xoxo


  1. Thinking of you and praying for you every day.
    Because of you, I went to a dermatologist earlier this month. I have Melanoma in SITU.
    I will have a surgical procedure on Tuesday. I am not scared because of you. You have made me a brave woman. I thank you so much and love you for it.
