Week 41: my PET scan results are in......TREATMENT WAS A SUCCESS! I should be good for another 5 years, depending on where you get your statistics and whether or not you believe them. For the most part, they say I have anywhere from about a 52% to 64% chance of survival. Personally, I plan to be in the 100% range. That means I can keep on smoking, drinking, spitting, swearing and speeding.  So step aside world... I'm back.

PET Scan Coming Right Up

Week 40: I'm due for my PET scan tomorrow afternoon. I have nothing to fear or so I keep telling myself. I trust my positrons are all emitting normally by now. However, I'm not looking forward to the pain and cramping from having my "bad arm" raised over my head motionless for so long. I cringe just thinking about it.    I think I'm becoming a wuss.

By this time tomorrow, I'll be a radioactive. Wish me luck!
