Scan Results

So we got the CT and X-Rays back from Seton today. The tumors continue to grow and spread. Of course, that explains the increase in pain that she’s been experiencing. It’s very unfortunate and makes me sad. She’ll be taking the scans with her tomorrow to MD Anderson for her visit. It will be interesting to see if we continue with this treatment or we’ll move on to the next trial. Were I a bettin’ man, I’d bet we’re done with this trial.

It’s kind of funny. The other day in the ER after getting the CT scan, Maggie asked the very nice technician if she saw anything interesting in the scan. Of course, she said “we aren’t allowed to discuss anything with the patient” to which we followed up with “It’s ok. We know there’re lots of tumors.” The technician didn’t say anything in response but it was clear what was on her mind. Maggie and I both wondered if she sees many scans like that. We hope she doesn’t.

Tomorrow she’s back to MD Anderson. We’ve got Grace Flight appointments for both the flight there tomorrow morning and the flight back on Wednesday. However, given that they are an organization built on volunteers, they don’t fly in inclement weather. We very well may be using some of your generously-donated flight funds to get her there and back via Southwest.  As always, we’ll wing it.

Her spirits are good, as always, despite the ever-present pain. She’s amazing to me. My heart aches flipping through the CT scans and seeing the vile growths that are hurting her. It’s such a helpless feeling to know that I can’t do anything. Tonight, I’ll hold her hand especially tight while we spend our time together making supper and watching TV.
