Quick update...lots of trips to Vanderbilt this week.

Thursday, August 22, 2013

This wil ba a quick blog because I'm leaving for yoga class in a few minutes. We spent a lot of time at Vanderbilt over the last couple days getting blood drawn, an entire body bone scan, a CT of the torso and an echocardiogram. I don't expect to know the results of all those tests until I meet with the oncologist again on Wednesday and have my first chemo.

We are leaving for Nashville around lunchtime today and checking into a hotel around 2pm. We plan on making a little vacation of it in Nashville before I need to be at Vanderbilt hospital at 6am Friday morning to get my port placed. We are thinking we will be out of there by 11am and back home by 1 or 2.

This week has gone by fast!

Good things keep happening...

Life is good!

    That is a great idea for the trip to Nashville, something positive to look forward to with all you are dealing with.

Glad you are getting a port; I am glad I have mine, it makes chemo so much easier when they don't have to keep poking around to find a vein.
