OMG there IS a God!!! PET Scan came back with NO hot spots!!! None!!!
Instead of having to chemo with a 3 week break then 5 weeks of chemo/radiation…he only had to do the chemo/radiation for 5 weeks. This cuts down his treatment time by 1/2 to 2/3rds!!! This was AWESOME news!!
Ever since Nick and I heard that the PET Scan came back with no hot spots, I’ve watched Nick get healthier looking, there’s a bounce in his step, he smiles more……………..
Just the mental load off has been amazing.
He’s getting back to his old self again….albeit 18 pounds lighter.
I need to fatten him up. (Per Dr. S. *blank on her name right now but she’s a perky funny little thing!!)
And now the issue that Dr. G put ‘on the back burner’ ….
It’s standard practice to always to a cardio check on anyone heading for chemotherapy. Nick’s b/p has pretty much been ‘normal’. Wednesday, when we went into Dr G’s to hear the PET Scan results, his b/p was 111/74. (this was Nov 19th)
They did this cardio test last Friday? Nov 14th I think? (things are really running together lately). Dr. G told us Nick’s heart looks like he’s had high blood pressure problems. It’s not a REAL concern….but they’ll be watching him during chemo/radiation. I didn’t tell anyone this news before because I wanted everyone to have a couple days of YAY!!!!!! Dr. G isn’t THAT concerned about it………so we’ll worry IF and WHEN we need to.
We have enough on our plate right now.

I remember this day of the PET scan results. Nick and I couldn’t stop hugging and crying and smiling and and and…….I don’t even remember what we did to celebrate….other than just breathe.
We both thought there might be a light at the end of the tunnel…..That his real healing could begin.
How little did we know……
