In case you didn't get my text today, I will let you know what is going on in our neck of the woods.
Today I was supposed to get the results from my PET scan to see if the Xeloda chemo medicine has been working or not. So I spent a while down at my oncologist office trying to get the answers out of them...but they were too busy and after about a half hour, I gave up on that route. So I left a detailed message on the nurses hotline to get back with me as soon as possible about the results. I went home and was exhausted to I took a cat nap and put the cell phone right beside my bed in case they called. They didn't.
Later, Morgan asked me if I had heard the message from the nurse. WHAT???!!! The nurse had called our land line that we really never use while I had been taking my cat nap and left a message. This is what is said..." Don't take your Xeloda anymore, the doctor will call you with more details but you need to stop taking the medicine. I have the results in front of me, but I will have the doctor go over with them with you." ARE YOU KIDDING ME????? And guess what else.... the doctor never did call me to go over the results. arggggg!!!
Here's what we know, just by deciephering the nurses encoded message.
1. the chemo medicine must not be working or else they would have me keep taking the medicine.
2. the cancer must be growing because even if it was just stalling at the same size, they would still have me take this medicine.
So now you know everything I do... and that isn't much!! Hopefully tomorrow will bring more answers and some chocolate. Love you all!!
