Okay, I've finished with the the u/s's and the CT scan.  I have an appt. with the dr. for next Monday, so unless something serious shows up in the test results I guess I won't hear anything until then.  They always call when the news is bad; it's the good stuff they make you wait on.  Seems to me it should be the other way around, hmmm.
I've decided I have to find a way to keep the brittleness out of my voice when I go for tests.  I hate when my voice gets like that.  It happens every time I have to go for a test of some sort.  I get this tight, testy sound in my voice and physically I feel so tiny and helpless.  I don't want to sound like that; I'm sure the techs can't stand me.  All I want when I'm in those places is to be some place else.
Yesterday's test just about did me in.  I had to drink all of the barium and it made me nauseous.  Then afterwards I had to stay real close to the bathroom all day because of diarrhea.  Gosh, I'm tired of feeling awful.
The weather isn't helping at all.  Yesterday, the county issued an evacuation order for the Mt. Charleston area over in northwest LV because of avalanche dangers.  We're southeast of LV and have mostly rain, but I look at the hills in Henderson all around me and wonder how much water they can absorb. 
Thank you for being there with me yesterday.  I knew you were there, there were pink feathers on top of the CT machine.  L&H's, Luci

One of the worst things about moving is having to get familiar with the weather in the new place. And you can't really count any weather this year since it has been so strange. I took all my flannel jammies with me to Atlanta and it was warm. Then, Jodi had my huge aloe plant put outside here, forgot it, and a freeze killed it.
I'm going to be sitting with you on Monday just to hear about the pork chop bone. I'm having all my scans on Thursday and I will be at the onc's on the same Monday. There's lots of prayers headed from Van Alstyne to Henderson.
Love You, Jo-Ann

I love ya buddy

Glad your tests are over. I felt bad reading about drinking that yukky stuff. No matter what they flavor it with, it is awful. You'd think they could come up with something easier than drinking chalky stuff. It will be hard for us to be with both you and Jo-Ann next Monday, but we will manage. You know if you feel like you're sounding testy, just tell them like you told us, it will work, they will understand I am sure. Love and hugs, MK

Well I can see PCE will be busy. We will be with you all as usual. Luci, I am so sorry you have to go through this. I think that test is long over due for some welcome to the new century memos. I mean it. That test is not nice. Not nice at all. It really is the pitts. I am so glad it is behind you ( no pun intended) Will keep fingers crossed for good news. L&H Joyce

Thinking of you. Hang in there sweetie. I just know you are going to get good news.

I agree, they should call us early with GOOD NEWS but when waiting for news from scans, etc., everytime the phone rings I almost pass out so maybe that's why they don't call....HA HA

Here's praying for GREAT NEWS from all your tests.

I went to onc today and don't have to go back for two months!!!!! So excited - I remember when 6 months made me mad, now it's starting to look great!!!!!! 

Just glad to be alive to have something to worry about.
