I had my scan this morning, thank you all for your wonderful prayers and thoughts. I got innundated today with people from a sight called Especially Heather, thank you for sharing the love Heather!!! Thank you all so much for your unending support, it definitely helps me get through these times.
I tolerated drinking the contrast today, it really wasn't too bad this time, it was like Orange Crystal Light. I tried to think of myself back in college where I just chugged even though it tasted nasty! It worked! I did call a little bit ago and got some initial results. They are concerned that there may be recurrence of cancer in the rectum, pelvic area. They want to do another test, supposedly called an endoscopic ultrasound ( I need to look it up to get more information). I won't know any more until Monday. I am hoping that there is a simple fix to this, maybe a surgery to cut it out or something they can do, as long as there is a possible treatment I think I can handle it!
My very good friend all the way from 5th grade and I with our children went to Wonderscope today to get my mind off things. It is a cute place with different rooms with all sorts of activities for the kids. We had a lot of fun, thank you Julie for your friendship.
We are going to go over to Doug's parents for dinner tonight and I am going to have some wine, maybe more than some, hehe. We are going to enjoy our weekend, we have a party to go to tomorrow night and may have some of Ella's cousins over to play on the swingset. I am not going to worry about this right now, there is nothing I can do, so worrying is not going to help.
Oh, I forgot to tell you, poor Doug, I think he caught a stomach bug that my mom had the other day and maybe what Ella had last weekend. He wasn't feeling well, he ended up coming to the scan with me, we were sitting in the room after I drank my contrast and he just darted out of the room, tried to go to the bathroom but somebody was in it. He came running back into our room and had to grab the trash can and got sick. I felt so bad for him. He has been resting all day. He probably didn't want me to share that with you all, but I just felt horrible for him. I know how miserable it is to feel sick! Doug- thank you for your loving words that you wrote and for the endless love you give me! I am so lucky to have you as my husband and father to Ella.
I better go, Ella is crying in her bed. I will let you know when I find out more on Monday.
Have a great weekend everyone! shawndra
