I know that in the past I’ve been really very upset whenever I’ve had to go for any kind of testing , but for some reason I’m not worried at all about the bone scan I’m about to have this morning. I have to go in at 7:45 to have the nurse access my port so they can give me the injection of radio-active crap, and then I have to go back again at 11:30 for the scan. Luckily I don’t have to fast at all for this one. I’m already having my coffee and M&Ms and it’s still dark outside. Rick saved the day yesterday by going to get me a brand new bottle of my favorite creamor and a great big bag of M&Ms. I had posted on my Facebook page yesterday that I was out of both of them and that was about to have a nervous break-down because of it so Rick said he was going to the store for milk and came home with all my favorite things. I’m so spoiled…but in a good way. I don’t know if it’s considered being spoiled if I appreciate it, but I do know that I’m forever grateful to Rick for being so good to me. I try to spoil him too but he’s one of those people who doesn’t want very much. As long as he has his computer, his cell phone and dinner on the table every night he’s about as happy as anyone I’ve ever seen. And he’s the one who does all the cooking so all that’s left for me to do it just to be nice to him. I set my alarm this morning for five am just in case I didn’t wake up on my own, and I accidentally woke him up when I was getting out of bed so he’s up with me this morning. I am curious to see what the scan says, but after the last scan I just don’t feel like this one is a very big deal. I figure that even if there is anything in my bones it wouldn’t make much of a difference because cancer in the bones isn’t as bad as if it were anywhere else…like in my lymph nodes, and I already know about that. I had a phone call from Justin and Ashley yesterday and it seems like they’re having a really hard time getting things to go well for them, and because Ash has my first grandchild growing in her belly I don’t like that they are so far away. I was happy for them that they wanted to move away far enough that they could start over with a clean slate, but now I don’t like it at all. I feel like I could be there so much more for them if they were closer to us. Hopefully things will get better for them and they won’t have to worry so much. I know that they are both doing the best that they can, and everybody has to learn life lessons on their own. I still wish that I could do more for them though. I like buying baby things and Rick is already trying to think of things that he can send to them. Rick’s a sucker for babies. It’s actually kind of cool outside this morning so I might be able to have my bath and make it all the way back downstairs without being covered in sweat. That would be very nice. I can’t wait until it’s really cold every day so I can wear something other than shorts and a tank top and we can keep the house opened up. I think Rick just fell back to sleep in his recliner so I better wake him up so we can both start getting ready to go to the imaging place. I feel pretty good this morning, no major pain and the coffee and M&Ms gave me the energy that I need to climb back up the stairs. We have to leave a few minutes early because we are dropping Jesse of at her meeting with HR to talk to them about the report she made the other day about another employee being abusive to a client. She’s worried that they might fire her for reporting it but I really hope that they just want to get all the information on the incident so that they can take action to make sure it doesn’t happen again to anyone else. If they do fire her for this I may have to get involved but I try very hard to stay out of my kids problems unless they specifically ask for my help. With my big mouth that can be really hard for me to do, but I would rather they learn how to handle things on their own. Well, off I go to get ready to be poked and prodded, but if I’m a good girl during the scan they’ll give me a juice and a granola bar. Yay. 🙂 Rick and Bob look so cute sleeping together that I don’t wanna wake them up.
