I played in a golf scramble that benefited the Little Red School House yesterday. My Father, Uncle Deno and Andy was the team. We tied for second shooting 13 under. Super fun! We played really well. Made me want to take my golf game a little more serious.
I had scheduled my third PET scan on June 1st. Needless to say, I have been waiting to hear the results from that scan. I got a call from my oncologist last night and got the results. There is what looks like a hot spot in my upper right chest that is most likely a infected lymph node.
It didn’t show on the second scan, but did on the third one (the arrow is pointed to the issue). the other dark spots is my bottom of my brain, heart, kidneys, bladder, and testies). I am scheduled to have a biopsy on Tuesday, then we will be able to see what needs to happen next. Worse case scenario might be a bone marrow transplant. Yea, fuck that! The good news is there has been a hugh reduction in the amount and size of the active cells. Im also waiting to get all three scan results to send to a distant relative and a specialist (on my sister-in-laws side) to Sao Paulo Brazil. Time for a second opinion! I think my Oncologist has done a good job, but I want a second and third set of eyes to look it over.
Its safe to say that the last 24 hours has been pretty heavy. But it doesn’t compare to the last month of hanging out with my friends and family. So thats where thats at. Im feeling good other than this small set back. Ill keep you posted!
