Denise,
Great news the pet scan was negative, hope the rest of your recovery is smooth sailing!

Texas is out of the waiting room and in the hospital.  He has a severe case of pneumonia, and  dehydration from feeling so poorly. 

He will be there for 3 days getting IV antibiotics and breathing treatments.  :(((

Denise   Happy the PET scan was clear. Big relief I'm sure. One down :)

Sharonma.  Sorry Texas has pneumonia but at least you know now and he is being treated. He will be fine I'm certain. And thanks for the compliment -- I assume it was a compliment lol

All good here. 

Happy Mothers Day!

I'm humbled - thanks Sharonma!

I received the "see you next year letter" re my mammo, so except for my dense breast tissue and that mammos can miss cancer - I'm all set!  (Yes, that was a sarcasm).  Guess I still haven't gotten over the fact that a mammo missed a 9.5cm tumor six years ago.  I am happy, however, that some attention is now given to dense breast tissue.
Vent over :)

Hello All-
God I have missed a lot.  
First BIG congratulations to Elaine and Denise.  I love reading that good news, I remember waiting for my PET scan results and just about going out of my mind.  I truly think that was the turning point..get through that and get on with your treatment plan and banishing that beast from your body.  My thoughts and rayers are with you:-)  
Sharon, send me a FB friend request..I am simply Patricia Patterson.  I am so sorry about Matt, how is he doing? My one and only experience with a skateboard ended up with pieces of my driveway in my knee.  My son and nephew were out there with me, said "whatever you do, if you feel like you are falling, don't put your foot down!"  So, what did I do?  It wasn't pleasant.  And what is wrong with Texas?   I missed all this and I'm sorry.  I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day....

Pat and Tricia,

Will be thinking of you and we will be posting the nanners before you know!

Had a load of blood work done yesterday, and came home to a message today  from my pcp that I need to come in ASAP but not an emergency from my bw results.  Could it be my cholesterol?? Likely since I have been living on baguettes, cheese and croissants for the past week, lol
Tomorrow my endocrinologist appt.

Texas has a follow up chest X-ray on Thursday.

Tricia, I'm so sorry for the loss of your cousin,  this damn disease:(

Well my cholesterol is now a whopping 300mg/dL, and my LDL is 184.  Yikes!!  Last count in December it was 287/158.  Especially concerning with my FH of heart disease.
Need to have a cardiac calcium scan done.  It's like a chest CT with EKG electrodes.  Channeling Rosanna Roseannadanna "I it's always something, Jane"
On a good note, my hyperthyroid is still in check!   Which would account for my 4lb weight gain!

Pat, any news?
