Another week.....

Monday morning is my last test, the Bone scan. This will check to see if there is any cancer in my bones. I go to the hospital at 9:15 for the injection of medicine and then return at 12:30 for the scan. In between I have an appointment for a follow up with Dr. Kaufman. My under arm area, shoulder and chest area and parts of my arm are still sore. This is from the nerves being cut/damaged during surgery and also from the swelling. This is a natural process and over time the fluid that is causing the swelling will be absorbed back into my body. So it's ice and IBprofen. It's taking much longer to feel better than I thought it would.
Oh well, today was a 45 minute walk with Annie and the couch all afternoon, catching up on my taped tv. I'm going to make my best effort at work this week for Tues to Fri 8 - 4:30.
I'll post following my test/results.


  1. Hi Aunty S,

    Good luck with you test today, although I'm sure you won't need it and it will pass with flying colors as all the others did! I hope you had fun at your bbq this weekend!

    Talk to you soon!
