Subject: [cancer] Getting another scan today
Security: Public
Tags:cancer, health, personal
Off shortly to get my quarterly CT scan and bloodwork. [info]mlerules is driving me because this stuff stresses me out so much.

I need to be scanned every three months because of the high likelihood of the return of the cancer. Let's just say I'm not a good bet for life insurance. So this is a necessary, even critical part of managing my health. But it's such a triggery moment, and the rest of my life hinges on each scan.

Sigh.

Well, figuratively. Deceased and best viewed, if at all, from a distance behind frayed velvet ropes.

You were the topic of much conversation at dinner Saturday night, btw. Some woman claimed she was marrying you, I dunno.

Lawks, these women. They get everywhere. (She said she had a lovely day, so thanks for your share of that. It's all about her, y'know.)

I can't imagine how complexly stressful these things must be. Hoping for best results.

Oi, that must be awful, having to go through that every three months. Here's hoping for a very boring result.

How long do you have to wait for the results? (Wish they could just scan you and then immediately give you results. That would be the humane thing to do.)
