Update

This week I went for my appointment with my surgeon (Beth). Beth was able to feel what I was feeling and in her opinion it does not feel "worrisome". She is a little concerned because of how things panned out last time so she would like for me have another PET Scan. I will have to wait until June because insurance will not cover it. I feel comfortable waiting the few months and if I notice any other changes, we will push it up.

My goal is to be alive for at least another 60 years!

Love and light,

Wendy

Good news (keep your fingers crossed)

I don't want to jinx myself but so far the news is good. My scans don't show anything in the area of concern. This is very good news of course. I am seeing my surgeon on the 20th (I think) so she can examine me. If she feels it, she will biopsy it to be safe because (again, not to jinx myself) the last time the scans looked good I had a biopsy done and was diagnosed with Angiosarcoma. But I'd like to try and feel optimistic.

My scans showed the usual things on my liver and one of my kidneys. These are the things we watch because for 1- they are too small to characterize and 2- most have characteristics of cysts and 3-they remain pretty much unchanged. A few more lymph nodes in my body showed up this time but no reason to be concerned as of now. At least that's what I'm telling myself because I have some docs telling me about my risk for Lymphoma, Leukemia and a few others and other docs who don't seem concerned. Oh well, I can't live in fear rather I am thankful I am alive!

I just read what I wrote and it doesn't sound very positive so perhaps I am on the fence. Let's just say I am cautiously optimistic OK?

Love and light,

Wendy
