CAT Scan



"Now is the moment!" says Dr. Litor, my oncologist.

It would appear that the big tumours have not reduced since the last scan, but the little ones are gone.

No this, no that, no the other, not much change. A tiny bit of fluid ("Nothing compared to what you started with. . .").

I feel a bit of pressure in my belly as I did in the beginning, but Nick reminds me it's probably the fluid.

I also feel better this week. My platelets are moving up towards normal and I have the energy to walk the dogs.

So. . . I have an appointment with the surgeon on Monday morning. He will make the decision whether now is really the moment. I'm taking my packed bag with me this time, so I don't have to come fetch it in case he does, indeed, say, "Now!"

  1. Yay for feeling better now, most importantly!
    And it would seem that little tumors disappearing is good because that means less spreading? And the surgeon can go remove the big ones, now?
    And thanks for subscribing me! I like this much better. :)
