Subject: [cancer] CT scans today
Security: Public
Tags:cancer, health, personal
Leaving work early this afternoon to have another round of CT scans done. Expected result is to calibrate growth of lesions in liver and lymph. (Other results are possible but not likely.) Additional possible result is to uncover extent of potential lesions in lungs. (We're looking based on some evidence from prior scans, don't really know.) I've been dealing with my fears about this mostly by staying a few hundred yards ahead of their snapping teeth. Today, I feel the bite, though I won't get the scan results until Wednesday.

Know that the Optimum-Optimism Ray is bursting right up through the clouds here in Nebraska and shooting teraflop-ergs of strength and hope your way - every day!

And yes, the Steam-driven Ray Controller does have plenty of dials and toggles and cool etched-brass meters and copper pipes in its structure.

Fear is a fast fucker.

Step aside, I will attempt to kick it repeatedly in the shins for you; I'm sure you've got better things to deal with.

(Also hugs.)

I'll keep my fingers crossed for today going smoothly, and for the wait until you know the results not being too entirely maddening.

My thoughts are with you. My sister/best friend just went through surgery for colon cancer and now is facing chemotherapy, all with no insurance. Cancer is scary and terrible and I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy (if I had one). Fingers crossed for you that all goes well. I would tangle with the fear for you if I could and knock out a few of its teeth.

I always hope with scans and the sort to be rewarded with a fabulous photo worthy of the years xmas card.
