PET Scan Day


Had an absolutely wonderful day on Sunday at our DAR tea fundraiser. We raised $1300 for our state regent's project (PSSDAR scholarship fund). Amazing! Loads of fun.

Today was a repeat of my PET scan from July. Hopefully this one turns out better. Praying for no spots and nothing at all lit up on the scan!

Tomorrow is chemo day so I probably won't post again for a few days depending on how this one goes. Last time, not so good. But I have to say in the last week I have felt SO much better than the weeks between chemo while on Oxaliplatin so maybe changing to Camptosar was a good thing even if I do have severe nausea the first day or two.

On Sunday Phil and dad went to Warriorsmark so Phil could compete in a bird shoot with Bella. Usually he hits 9 out of 12 shots but not so good this time. They have gone grouse hunting in Clearfield County yesterday and today. They brought back lots of ticks with them yesterday but none today. Yay.

Gave away one of the beagles tonight. A good friend of Joe and Chrystal's took Sukey. She will make a nice hunting dog. She's just a little faster than we can use for brace field trials but no lickety split gun dog. David will need to work her to get where she needs to be but she's a nice dog and he will enjoy her.

Had a terrific evening last night. Mom and I fixed a huge pot of spaghetti sauce and two pots of noodles and Joe and Chrystal and the kids came over. We had an ice cream cake from DQ for dessert. So yummy. It's great to be able to eat and drink cold things again!

Got your message. First, be well tomorrow. You are doing a kick-butt job at fighting this thing. Let us know what happens when you get the PET results. When is that? And, go to thecutestblogontheblock.com and look at the blog backgrounds. they have pretty good instructions on how to update your look. Let me know if you have questions. <3

Hello Carol!


I wanted to let you know about an interesting cancer blog a group of cancer patients have been working on.

A fellow tongue cancer patient was sent home to die. There was nothing more that can be done. Cancer survivors ask him life altering questions.

Prayed for good results! Hope your chemo isn't too rough this time. I envy you being able to have cold stuff! :P
