The CT Scan Results and Dr.s Comments. Yea!
As many of you know, I saw the doctor today to get my CT or CAT scan results. They were sweet! I was scared to death but the doctor was somewhat please also but remember, this is the doctor that likes to sugar coat things.

First, the two spots, also known as tumors. They had not grown a fraction of a centimeter therefore, they probably are just spots. There was some, "hardening," in an area close to them which is more than likely scar tissue from my surgery 13 months ago. We are going to do a PET scan shortly to see for sure if this is true. He is pretty sure it is so I will take his word for it. All in all, I was awfully pleased. I am to stay on the Tarceva Chemo and even get it refilled. That would be another 50 days of it. That's okay! As long as we have nothing growing inside of me that is not suppose to be there, I'll take anything.

A note of humor somewhat: All of you know how I feel about the Doctor Lady that did my surgery and declared me free of cancer when I should have been down at the Oncologist getting chemo. Well, I've always said she was one, a bitch and secondly, inept. Well, after we got back from the doctor's office, (Grant went with me,)Grant agreed to give me a hair cut. I take my shirt off and rap a large bath towel around my neck while he cuts my hair out in the back yard. After he had finished, I use the towel to wipe the cut hair off of me and all of a sudden he said, "Wait a second." Looking at my back, where I can't see, was a piece of string, thread, hanging out my back at the start of the scar from my surgery. Grant pulled it out and by God it was a stitch the bitch had failed to pull out of me. Can you believe that. This stitch has been in me for 13 months? Wow, was she a professional doctor! Couldn't even take the stitches out right!

I found this humorous. Hope you do also. Gotta run and fix me some dinner.

God Bless and keep those cards and letters and good thoughts and prayers coming folks. I'm still doing chemo but ......so far, so good.

Good news! But the image of getting the haircut and finding the thread is fitting, when it rains it pours, lets just hope that's all she forgot to take out. Enjoy the evening.

Awsome Report & What a jerk for a physician/surgeon.

Just so darn pleased with the good news. You hear about doctors that are not fit to be in medicine/health but you just hope you never come under their practice! The truth is that even if you are able to get your case entered into her personnel file, something tells me it would disapper after a little time. Guess it's best to do what you're doing and just laugh out loud and keep on getting well. WAY TO GO JIM / AND THANK YOU JESUS!
