Hi dear sisters.
It has been a rough week for me and now I am in that shock stage as we have all gone through. I had my abdomenal and pelvic CT scan last night. My oncologist called me today which is never a good sign. The areas of concern which were the adrenal gland and the liver are stable. However I have a small ovarian cyst on one side and my uterus looks suspicious. I am having a pelvic and abdomenal ultrasound on Monday and will see my gynecologist on Friday to do an exam. With a Dexa scan on Wed it looks like a fun week for me. I am just plain weary and exhausted and sad and frankly scared as well. This ultrasound looks like another cumbersome test. This will be hoping I can retain 32oz of water in the bladder before the pelvic part of the US. That might prove to be the most difficult of these tests so far. I really need your prayers.
Teka, I can't believe all the snow even though I know it is probably pretty typical for you way up north. It is beautiful. I am not ready for the white stuff yet. We are experiencing almost spring like temps which has been wonderful.
Joanne, that is a beautiful fall scene. Unfortunately I have no fall pics this year. My pretty red maples in my front and back yard have all lost their leaves now.
Carol, I hope your apple pies are delicious for your husbands birthday. Sounds yummy. How are you doing?
Ade, I had a feeling that you both were down for the count with Covid. I sure hope you are both feeling better now and won't have any long lasting effects. I have been praying for you.
Faith, I was sorry to hear your anxiety med is causing bad side effects. I was so happy to hear you were doing better in many areas. I will continue to pray for answers for you. This is an anxious time for many, many people so I know you aren't alone in this but that doesn't take away the difficulty that you are going through.
Chris, I can't see your post so I am trusting my memory. I know you are in AZ and I am praying that you are having a wonderful time with your family and I know you were going to see your new sister. I pray this is just what the doctor ordered for you. Sometimes just being with family can be like a healing balm. Stay safe and I am happy you got to take this trip.
Have a good weekend dear sisters.
