It was a long drive to Santa Barbara this morning, as anyone would guess, she absolutely hated the Barium-Banana shake, who could blame her? I tried just about everything to get her to drink what little she could, just to make the scan process as quick as possible. Not much went down, but it was enough to stain what needed to be illuminated.
Nurse Deborah had to take a bit of blood this morning to make sure her numbers were high enough (stable enough) to go for this round of chemo. They were good enough, so that just means that next week, all will plummet...ugh! But the chemo is doing it's job, that's what matters.
The playground of the mind can be a tortuous place, or it can be beautiful, I suppose it depends upon how much energy is given to any particular thought. That hour that we spent waiting for the results of the CT scan were rough, I believe I imagined every possible scenario, from finding a watermelon sized tumor to 12 in various locations, god that's ugly!
The good news...there was NOTHING on the CT scan, hooray!!!
We are now in our usual place on the fifth floor of Cottage. It's actually sort of nice to be back here in a familiar place, as we have been going to Sierra for the past month with fevers. It feels like we are back on track with the chemo schedule, hopefully not too much longer, I can almost taste it!
