Scans tomorrow.

Postby thubler » Mon Jan 07, 2019 11:09 pm

Well the time has come for my 9 month scans, tomorrow (Tues). This is the longest interval I have gone thus far. As long as everything is good I get to graduate to yearly scopes and scans. Scanxiety usually doesn’t kick in for me until after the scan. The wait is definitely the worst for me. For some reason my scans take longer and longer to come back which is frustrating. Praying everything comes back clean! Then onto the scopes! I pray that everyone is coping well wherever you are on this journey. ~ Ted
