CT Scans Today

Today, I had CT scans of everything from my neck to my belly button. It was pretty much uneventful, though they were unable to use my port because they did not have documentation of my port's type. They started an IV instead. So, back I go to Kaiser to obtain some sort of documentation. I hope it is something that UCSD can indicate in my chart and not something that I have to carry with me.
Scan results come Monday at my doctor's appointment with Dr. Boles. I have some pain that I am concerned about, praying it is not indicative of disease progression. I am hopeful but do not have my hopes up due to the location of said pain.

Other than that, I had a nice day today. I spent some time out in the sunshine, lunching at the Western Barbecue with Madison. It put me in a really nice frame mind, a much needed diversion after my scans of the morning. Tomorrow, I am going to an early movie with my cousin and to the opera with my mom. The Opera is a comedy, Don Pasquale. I am really looking forward to time with my mom and the opera looks fantastic. More diversions that are much needed as I await scan results.


  1. Hi Marsi, it was wonderful to read how successful the fundraisers have been; generosity always puts me in a state of awh. I am praying for the results of the scan to be favorable. Also I am hoping you have a wonderful time at the Opera as I have heard great things regarding Don Pasquale. Cheers Bridget W

  2. UCSD will keep the documentation about your port in your file. I hope you had fun at the opera!

  3. I am thinking of you and will await your next post. xo
