So many folks have mentioned they were thinking of us during the endoscope yesterday, so I figured I would give another update. The endoscope seemed to go well, it seemed me….. I do know that the procedure was supposed to be about 20 minutes and Dr. Giday stayed in there for an hour with his little camera looking around and snipping this and that. So, now we just wait for the results.
Next up is another Liver Biopsy on Monday, along with “chemo class” and a few other human pin-cushion tests. (I am trying not to let it go to my head, but whenever I roll up my sleeves, the phlebotomist invariably declares, “Wow, you have GREAT VEINS!” I think I was built to be a drug addict…just missed my calling and am devoted to Business Ethics instead.) Tuesday I have a PET scan. So back up to Johns Hopkins…those folks are terrific. Over and over we are so impressed and appreciative of their knowledge, compassion, and devotion to healing.
I did receive a note from my good pal Dick Bednar after hearing the word on the endoscope who said, “Carol, must have been tough on you not being able to talk for a whole hour!” But I assured him that I saved up All My Words while Dr. Giday was busy doing his thing and I just jabbered all the way home in the car! Thanks for thinking of me. xoxo Carol
