Popping Cancer Update: Test dates set.

Tomorrow at 10 is a fairly standard blood test. Just like all the rest, this will make sure my counts are up. I'll get a shot of ProCrit if they're a little low.

Friday morning is the biggie. I'm having a CAT scan (complete with two tall bottles of yummy contrast!) that should help us figure out what, if anything, the chemotherapy has been doing other than making me feel like a mugging victim.

Results here could be anything from (a) cancer completely gone, tumors dried up and left town to (b) cancer still growing at the same happy rate.

No reason to get too wound up until we have some definite results, I guess. Either way, for good or bad, it will be nice to have some real, tangible facts to work with. It's hard doing this treatment with no idea if it's making a difference.

Dan, I check your web site every day for updates. You are often in my thoughts as one COOL Person and wanted you to know that I continue to pray that all will be well. Love the poetry.

Dan, I check your web site everyday for updates.
Will they be kind enough to give you an immediate reading of the results? Or will your Doctor be on location in Sin City for the live taping of "Tilt" and leave you with a long weekend of wondering? I'm looking forward for some more good news on Friday.
Hate the poetry.

Results might be available by Friday afternoon. If not, it'll be after the weekend.

You hate the poetry because you have no class.

What's that reply? Some kind of poetry?
