I am sorry to say it looks like we are officially fighting cancer again for the third time. The medical conglomerate that did my biopsy has a policy of releasing their test results to their online portal automatically after 36 hours. So yesterday I did see the initial reports from my lung biopsy. They did find neoplastic cells, so then took a core biopsy and have sent that to the pathologist.
I guess I should have checked before I started typing this, maybe that report is released already too! I will go look later. I lied, I just went and looked. No pathologist report but I do have new reports and I can now tell you that my blood clots within normal ranges.
So, anyway, nothing really surprising but certainly not the news we were hoping for. I have an appointment on the 11th to discuss stereo static radiation to burn that shit outta my lung, and my husband and my doctor have already started the appeal process with the insurance company since they have (OF COURSE) already denied the drug my Doctor wants to switch me too.
Assuming things go as expected and planned it should move pretty quickly after I meet with the Radiation doc. From what I read it should be minimal discomfort for me, just a week or so of pretty good fatigue once they actually do the procedure. To be prepared I have now switched my Christmas brunch cooking to all sorts of finger foods that are planned and purchased so no matter what happens that will be under control.
I did cancel my plans with my niece today. We were supposed to go to a Christmas Party – sorry Ivan, but I needed the time to spend with Corey and get my head right. It always takes me 24 hours. I feel bad, but my niece is pretty awesome and will understand completely.
WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT! Hahah, my keyboard did that by itself when I typed in Wait. Sometimes the Bluetooth goes a little crazy. I just took a picture to show you my IV bruise! It is five inches long!
You can also see the tiny dot on the top of my hand where they tried, and failed with the first IV. So glad I got that port so I never have to have needles put in again. Pffft.
