Just Updating/Logging

Nothing great or exciting happening. The insurance company ok'd the arm splints for my carpal tunnel but haven't heard anything about the kids seeing a decent doctor yet. I forgot all about calling to schedule my physical therapy until I found the card today so I guess I still need to do that.

Retook my CT Scan and thankfully they used some kind of gastric contrast stuff (sounds really medically correct doesn't it?) instead of the barium shakes. I still got sick but only a little bit and nothing like the hell I usually go through with the barium. Hopefully this time it will show the tumor although a part of me keeps hoping it's just suddenly gone. I don't feel like being sliced open anymore. They've done enough damage and made me look hideous enough. I just want to be left alone now.

I'm sleeping more finally thanks to the new med the general doc gave me. It's nice sleeping through the pain instead of staying up because of it.

Other than that I've just felt crappy, Sis got some 24 hour stomach virus last weekend and then Bret got it this weekend so I'm sure I'll be next. With my luck it will either hit me on Solstice or Christmas. LOL. So again, nothing exciting or wonderful. I may even just go to once a month updates since things have slowed down and gotten pretty boring. I'm sure people don't want to hear about everytime I start a new stinking med or get blood taken. :)

Hang in there, Jo. As you know, I can relate COMPLETELY to your situation. I'm going for a consultation in January with a surgical oncologist and the last thing I want to be told is that I need more surgery. These things pass, and thank God for that!
