Scan is Scheduled

We have our magical f-DOPA PET scan scheduled, and possibly the best part (other than the enhanced results) is that insurance appears to be covering it!

Our scan is on June 9th, at UCLA Medical Center. The results will be on Monday, June 13th.

Ha! Makes me laugh every single time.

I bounce from terrified, numb, then a little ambivalent, and finally total denial. That's when I get my good workouts in, though, during the denial phases - so there's always a silver lining. 

Also, you can't beat an excuse to spend time in Southern California! Time with family friends, and ocean breezes. We'll have three full days to relax, and visit, and laugh, and get our toes in the sand. Once the scan is done, it's just waiting for results from there, and there's nothing you can do about that. Might as well enjoy!

I haven't convinced myself that the tumor has been growing again, even though that's the most probable reality. I have only a few remote ideas about what I will do if I need to revisit my treatment choices, to reevaluate and add more, or overhaul everything. I have no idea what we will do. We're working on a multitude of choices, kind of like a triage, what is easy to add, what can we afford to add, what have we not looked into, what would be synergistic. I've been doing a lot of research, so please forgive me for the lack of communication on my end. If you have an emergency, please put it in the subject of your emails so that I can address it more timely. Otherwise, I'm going to keep chugging along, nose to the grindstone and all that. Thank you for your patience!
