Kind of a Bummer Day

Hi, everyone. I'm just home from Michael's lacrosse game and my radiation treatment.

Well, we certainly found out why Chapperal is rated #1 in the state. Final score was 13-5. :>( What was even more of a bummer than the loss was for some reason coach didn't play the players who have been first string all season hardly at all, including Michael. Michael has played full minutes except for when they are man-up at every game all season and today got very few minutes. Another starter didn't get any minutes at all. I think coach was feeling a bit panicked about playing Chapperal, who he knew were a high scoring team, and instead of sticking with the kids who have been successful so far this season put in the players that he thought took the most shots. We did take a lot of shots, but obviously not many went in. Obviously Michael was down about the whole thing and so was I.

I forgot about taking a camera to radiation, so no pictures of that.

My CAT scan was canceled today because the machine was down. I will be getting it done tomorrow morning instead. I don't know why, but I am more anxious about this test than almost any I've had in the past. I know my doctors keep telling me they think my breathing problem is related to the lesion on my spine, but I'm so scared that the cancer has spread to my lungs. It's just so very scary to be constantly struggling with my breathing and not being sure what the cause is. I'm thinking because I'm not having the test done until tomorrow, I may not get results until next week. I HATE waiting for test results. Please say lots of prayers and send lots of good thoughts my way tonight and tomorrow. They mean so much to me.

Love you all!

Ohhh, so sorry for the disappointing lacrosse game AND having the CAT scan delayed. The waiting game is the worst. There are so many of us praying for you so hopefully that can first calm your nerves and then get you good test results . . . in a hurry.
Love & hugs,

Happy thoughts and prayers from me too! I also do not enjoy waiting..I think I am a patient person, but waiting for test results in not a strong suite of mine.
I am sorry about the lacrosse game too. That is a bummer.

I hope you have a beautiful Easter Weekend.
