|Time to enter the donut hole|
Just an update on my lung cancer journey. Today I had my three month, follow-up, cat scan. I had graduated from every six months, to one year, but the last scan showed a tiny nodule on the lower lobe of my right lung. This is the same lung that had a tumour 6.5 years ago. I have had two other ify scans and it all turned out ok. The first time they saw something whispy on the lung which turned out to be pneumonia. The second questionable scan was a nodule just like this time. When I went back for the follow-up scan, the spot had disappeared. My oncologist says that with the amount of cat scans I get, I am bound to have spots show up from time to time. It is so much easier for them to say that, as I sit there trying to catch my breath. I will be seven years cancer-free this coming St. Patrick's Day. I go in Thursday to meet with my oncologist and get the results of the scan today. I hope to be celebrating a clean scan on March 17. I can picture it now, me at a St. Patrick's Day event, drinking a cold libation to celebrate the mark of another mile-stone. Here's to the Luck of the Irish.
