So, tomorrow is the day!

Tomorrow is the day. I have an appointment with my oncologist to see how my bone scan and PET/CT scans went last week. The good news is that I haven't heard from her. When she found something wrong in my scans in July (when I was supposed to have surgery), she literally called me on her cell phone from her vacation. I'm cautiously optimistic that the scans are okay.
I haven't been on Spark much because of the neuropathy in my fingers from the chemo. My fingers feel like lead sometimes and it is hard to type as quickly and accurately as I am used to typing. Also, I haven't been too proud of my weightloss tracker. The goal during chemo was to MAINTAIN my weight -- not gain or lose. Of course, my oncologist and primary care physician are concerned. I've been trying to maintain weight by drinking Ensure and eating snacks (healthy snacks, of course), but even my new jeans are getting loose. I need to try harder.
I'm nervous about the appointment tomorrow, but it is all part of the process. Hopefully, the process will move on. Being stalled in chemo mode has really taken its toll on me.
