      Tomorrow I take  Will to Rush to have scans – the first since he started this treatment.  He's had two rounds of chemo.  I know all of you know exactly how I feel, so I won't bother going into the gruesome descriptions : (   We are staying overnight near the hospital, at Will's request, and then going back Tuesday to have the scans read, and God willing, more chemo.

      I've gone through such a gamut of feelings, most of which amounted to trying to read tea leaves or entrails to figure out what might be going on inside him as a result of the chemo, and finally gave up.  It is out of my hands.  I am just trying to stay hopeful and pray, and ask that anyone so inclined would do the same for Will.   I need to stay strong for him but am finding it extremely hard right now.  I have to get to work tomorrow at 2 a.m. in order to be done in time to get him to the city, and it is going to be a very very long two days.

              Lori,

              I know how horrible of a time it is waiting for scan results, hoping that when you get them you can give a sigh of relief.  I seem to be fine till the minute the scan is finished. Then I'm thinking they know the results, which makes it unchangeable. Then my true anxiety begins.

              Sending hugs and good vibes,

              Linda

              Stage IV since 06 (no longer NED and waiting for appointment with surgeon)

                                      Thank you all.  Will had the scan this a.m. and in about 24 hours (but who's counting) we'll get the results. We checked into the nearby Mariott to let him rest since it's just so hard getting down here and back when he finds it hard to walk some days.

                                      I don't really know how I'm doing – I'm kind of numb.  I've prayed about as much as I can, I think.  Now we just wait.
