Nervous About Tomorrow

Tomorrow we have a busy busy day at the hospital. I'm looking at my schedule of appointments and I have 6 of them in 4 hours, it's a darn good thing that 5 of them are in the same general area of the campus. Let's hope that nobody is running late and screws up the rest of the day. It will be unusual if everything goes on schedule but all we can do is hope for the best.

I'm not sure why but I am feeling very apprehensive about the day, probably because what I learn tomorrow is going to dictate what happens in my life for the next few months at least. We will be talking about how to treat the multiplying and growing tumors with the use of both radiation and Sorafenib. As you know both of those treatments have undesirable side effects and will beat up my body in a variety of ways. On one hand I am looking forward to doing something to fight the disease but on the other hand I am not looking forward to the way those things will make me feel. And do you want to listen to me whine for the next several months?

Anyway I will listen, learn, ask questions and make a decision on what to do once I have all the information. I am certainly going to do what I can to put a finger in the dike of this disease.

Please wish me luck, say a prayer, and send good vibes. I'll be back to you again later this week. One more request if you would be so kind - please keep Jessica in your prayers; today is the 4th anniversary of her father's death. He died much too young at 75.

Be Well - Be Blessed
