Heading back from Saudi Arabia tomorrow and have a PET/CT scan on Wednesday, follow- up with my Oncologist on Thursday, and a one-year follow-up Colonoscopy on Friday. Bing, Bang, Boom. Not terrified, but concerned. It is an everyday handshake with reality that I hope fades over time. Just want it over with. Wish me luck!

it's a wave of euphoria to say the least, but it lasted only a short time because the reality is it can come back at any time. i have another 6 months is how i look at it. of course, this makes things a little bit easier, but it's not like i could just forget and move on. This will always be with me.
Now on to bloodwork today and fasting with a self induced enema this morning for larry longfinger and his camera tomorrow morning. lovely way to start the day
