Yesterday I had my first three-month PET Scan to see if the iBrance and Faslodex have made any progress in shrinking my tumors and preventing them from spreading. I was not nervous about having the scan done; unfortunately, I have had two of them before now. I am, however, anxious about the results, which I will get on the 18th when we meet with my oncologist. I need to see that they have shrunk or, at the very least, haven’t grown or spread. Seeing progress is everything to me right now because it is so hard to look forward to the future when I don’t know how I am doing.
I haven’t been writing much lately, and I am sorry about that for both my readers and me. Writing in my blog can be very therapeutic, but things have been difficult since I was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer. My moods can vary so much daily, and that, of course, affects everything during my day. Some days I am very optimistic, so I think about future travel and plans, and on others, I worry about my husband and what will happen when I am gone.
I can’t find the words to elaborate on anything more as I am not feeling well. I will write more on Monday or Tuesday next week once I have the results from the PET scan.
