Dad's PET Scan Results

Friday, May 06, 2011

Well, we got the PET scan results back and it is cancer. We all knew it was, but to hear it confirmed kinda stinks. So the schedule for that stuff is all mapped out. His biopsy is the 12th, and they go for the follow up appt on the 17th. The surgeon seems to think that all will go well and he will be able to remove half the lung to remove all the cancer. The PET scan showed no signs of the cancer spreading, so it is a good thing dad caught pneumonia, otherwise, we would have never found the cancer.

In the midst of all this, we are apartment hunting. We will be having to move in the next month and need to find a place to live and also travel to Indiana to eventually get my stuff so we can have furniture in our place!

On a good note, we joined the gym and I have made it the past 3 days for at least 20-30 minutes total! It feels so good to be able to work out!

I will try and keep things posted and updated, I have been bad about blogging lately.
