Hi:
 
I've got a rx for a ct scan of the chest.  I've had a lingering cough for a couple of months.  He asked if I wanted an x-ray or a ct.  I said let's go for the good one.  I think it's nothing, probably residual rads stuff. 
 
I am still considering the hysterectomy with the oopher.  I saw a specialist yesterday, and he's going to see if I can get it covered without having to go through more diagnostic tests.  I'll see about that.  I want to leave my cervix in, he said that's doable.  He can do it laproscopically, it seems. 
 
I've also made a decision, a big one for me.  If I get an interview at The Mayo Clinic, I'm going to see a larynx specialist there.  I had finally resigned myself to having this voice for life, never being able to sing again, after years and years of roller coasters and hopeful operations.  I gave up and was okay with it.  Now, if I'm going to be there anyway, I feel I should consult someone there.  They are about the best there is.  I think I"m crazy not to.  So, that's a biggie for me.  I hate to hope again, but with this opportunity, I'll give it a go.  AFter all, I gotta go by Thoreau's saying in my signature.

I am really worried about this cough. Seems you have been talking about it for a while. Please let us know if all is well. The cherry on that sunday would be they can fix the larynx also. L&H and wishing lots of luck. Joyce

Hey, Ellen, if you are going to be at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN., let me know when. It's about 90 minutes away. Would love to meet with you again and share a hug or two. Good luck with the other surgeries. Doesn't sound like any fun, but you do what you gotta do. Hugs, Lauri

Whoops, meant Confucious, not Thoreau.  I'm a bubblehead!!!  Lauri, I'll definately let you know.  Sounds good.  Gotta see Garrison Keilor, too!!!!!

Hey Doc:

When is your CT?  I will have you in my prayers.  The decision about your voice is a good one for you.  You might as well know for certain if you can be helped.  Here's to hearing you sing soon. 

Love and hugs,

Candy

Ellen, I'm so glad you're getting the cough checked out. I sure can understand why you'd be reluctant to get your hopes up again; but with that opportunity presenting itself, we'll be here surrounding you and full of hope for you.

L&H,
Becky

I had a chest CT last year. It is not too bad of a procedure. Definitely hoping yours is A-OK. When is it? let us know so we can get the PCE ready....

L&H,
Lori

The CT is on Tuesday, after my mammogram.  Mammo in the morning (is that a song???) and then the ct in the afternoon.

Ellen,

Sending you positive vibes for that mammo and CT. I also will be watching to hear how they turned out.

Best of luck to you too with the larynx specialist! I will be ready to hop on that PCE when you need it sweetie.

God Bless,
Debbie
