CT Scan Results

Chest x-ray came back perfect-YAY!!! Thank you, God:)

CT scan shows a 7mm on my liver. They are unsure if it is "suspicious" and will have to wait until the surgeon is able to view it during surgery. They said 7mm is considered very small and might not even be anything (IMO-I have cancer, ANY spot, no matter how big or small NEEDS to be investigated and EVICTED faster than pronto!!!!). Dr. Hightower's office called and said, "We can just repeat the CT in 3 months." UMMM NO!!! Taking the whole "wait and see" approach is what got me in this mess in the first place. Ain't happening with this body anymore! Dr. Smith's office said that Dr. Hightower will be able to look at it closer during surgery and hopefully biopsy it to determine if its a problem spot and then we can zap it with radiation.

I had a moment today on the phone with my brother after hearing the results where I just said, "I'm SO ready for this junk to be OUT of my body!!! I'm sick of it being in there and growing and being places it doesn't need to be. I want it out NOW!!" I'm just trying to be thankful that my chest x-ray was clean, especially since my lungs are already not all that great with my asthma.

I have my PET scan tomorrow in Fayetteville at 3:30 (can't eat or drink anything other than plain water after 930am). Please pray I don't go bonkers from starving (gonna eat a nice big breakfast!!!) and that it comes back clear!!!
