Hello everyone..... I just cannot seem to get into the mood of Christmas. This is the worst I have ever been. I do not feel like decorating and I doubt if I will put up a tree this year. Hopefully I can get my lights outside this weekend. I always have the Christmas dinner. But thank goodness my sister-in-law said she would do it. And thank goodness for that. It takes an enormous weight off my shoulders.
Well, the news is in and I do need radiation. Friday, December 16 for CAT scan to pinpoint exactly where they want to shoot the radiation I must go for five weeks five times a week for 25 visits and the results of the pathology test showed it was staged two cancer not stage one as earlier thought. Tuesday I went to see my regular doctor . He gave me of flu shot and a pneumonia shot Wednesday I had to go for a pet scan . They shot something in my veins, which I do not know what it was but by Friday I had an allergic reaction to something I do not know if it was the combination of the three things or the dye, I cannot really pinpoint what caused the rash and of course from the results of the pet scan they found a lump in my thyroid, which must be removed so I need another surgery . Oh joy! Just what I was looking forward too, hopefully I can wait till after my radiation. For that I go to see that Dr. December 19th, I did not start the radiation as of yet, but hopefully will get it started soon . I am trying to keep a positive attitude about everything . Knowing there are people that are much worse off than I am ,and praying for them daily .it is so funny how things can change from one year to the next . Last year I had holiday fever early, this year I just cannot get in the mood .....
