Scans coming up

Well, I just found out about the upcoming appointments, so I thought I would share them here....

MUGA (Heart) Scan - October 11

CT Scan - October 16

The results of these scans will determine my next treatments......

I'm hanging in at the moment, feeling OK as long as I don't try to do too much. Althought forward progress is slow, I am NOT GETTING WORSE, which is actually quite a good feeling! I am passing the time by reading, needlework, "Emailing", and keeping in touch on the computer. And, my great family helps me pass the time with movies, other TV shows, lattes and other treats. All in all, I am doing OK, and I will check in as soon as I can with any other news!

HI Joanne, Thanks for the look really good. I will pray that you have the strength to get through all of these scans and that the results are good. I hope that you will be surrounded by family and friends for the long weekend...
Lots of Love, Loretta

Hi Jo,
thanks so much for the update - we will be anxiously awaiting the results of the upcoming tests. It is so nice to see your smiling face!
Thanks for visiting with Gary when I know that you were feeling your worst - he was really happy to see you and spend time with Gord and Brian at the football game (he said it was nice to be back in Taylor Field!)
Take care and we are thinking of all of you.
Love, Kelly

Hi Joanne
Thanks for the update and the great picture. You are sitting in one of my very favourite spots - great place to visit over a coffee or two (or more). Glad to hear you are doing OK and that your next scan appointments are in place - we'll be hoping and praying for positive results. Greetings to all! Love, Lorraine

You're just so damned beautiful!

I'm thrilled that you're feeling so well and are making 'forward progress'. That's terrific. And it sounds like, from your position at command central, you're still well able to keep your finger in lots of pies.

Keep it up girl. You're an inspiration!

Hey look at you! Hope the tests go well and that you keep finding some good books to read.

We have an Indian summer here. Today I as a fair for Save the Children and they had baskets of apples and pears and all kinds of fruit and autumn flowrs for sale.

Hi Joanne,

Just wanted you to know I am thinking about you. I know you have the scans tomorrow and early next week. I imagine the wait time (waiting for the news) is so very long. Anyhow we're praying!
