Waiting?

Well a few things have happened lately that I decided I would share. First it has been awhile since I have updated because I have been so tired. I just haven't had extra time to update. Am I getting my energy back is the biggest question I have been asked lately and the answer is no not yet. I keep hoping soon. My mom said to me you look good you don't look tired. I told her it is because I don't have time to be tired. I have children.

My back went out again really bad during radiation treatment. I had Dr. Kenzie, she is in with Dr. Kris, fix me up. A few days later my back was better. About the same time as my back went out I was still having a raspy voice and I had gotten back my CA2729 counts. The count was 44 I think. I stopped by doctor Rado's office and asked what they thought and if there was something we could do. So Mitra told me she would send orders over to have a PET scan. She didn't think they would approve one becasue I had just had one but that she would try and if not than a CAT scan.

Since then I have scheduled a PET scan for Sept 9th which is tomorrow. I have been having back aching like when I was first diagnoised, I am still tried all the time and my raspy voice is back again. I went and saw Dr. Kris last week. He looked to see if my back was out again and it wasn't. So he checked me and we think I have something again is what he said. He wouldn't come out and say cancer again. But I have been feeling that way for a little bit now. So we will see what the PET scan tells us. I do the scan tomorrow and the results usually take three days. I have a Dr.'s appointment Wednesday so I am hoping they stay on top of the results and not wait a month to get back to me.

So right now is another waiting game.

WOW....havent talked to you guys since school started..... Just spoke to my wife Heidi tonight and she is SO WORRIED about you. She has formed a bond with you, as you are such and inspiration to her. Nice to have someone to talk to who understands what each other are going through. You are such a strong person, don't let any of these set backs get you down, you do a great job fighting this disease when your spirits are up. You also inspire others who are going through or have gone through this challenge.

We will be anxiously waiting to here how the scan comes out....I think Heidi is having a scan her in the next few months as she is nervous about how she feels at times. Still has some shortness of breath, which I believe is from her not being able to do much the last 9 months and now she is trying to be super mom again.

Hang in there, let me know if there is anything we can do, if you need more dinners, lunches, car washed, lawn mowed, someone to play with the kids while you rest we are always here for both of you.
