Bev.... whew! Things are looking better! :D Thanks for the update. I'm praying the enlarged node is just some kind of infection. Hang in there and get some quality sleep now!

Hi again, kids.

I was not expecting my PET/CT from whenever it was last week would be posted to the patient portal, butt it showed up today! My appointment with the new onc, plus pulmonary function studies and bronchoscopy and biopsy is scheduled for tomorrow---butt maybe I won't need the scope!

PET showed a number of hilar, blah-blah, blah-blah enlarged nodes (can't remember where at the moment) in my chest, butt WITHOUT any FDG update :D :D :D . Radiologist is reading them as benign, and no other signs of metastatic disease. This is not likely lymphoma without any uptake. Hopefully the new onc will have a good idea what these nodes mean, butt probably not any cancer.

I thank you all for taking the time to encourage and support me. It made a world of difference. For the moment I am incredibly encouraged.

Love you all,

Bev
