have actually gone fairly quickly. We went up to Liberal for mom's memorial service on the 27th (service was on the 28th). Got to see my aunt and uncle from Iowa and it had been a few years since I've seen them. My brother had nothing to do with me (his fiancee is pregnant) and my sister barely talked to me or our aunt and uncle. My brother would hardly sit by me for some family pictures. he and I were once close. He wouldn't have anything to do with Kaelyn either. Kaelyn did have a fun time running around with her cousins. She was so cute! The guy who molested my niece showed up so we had to have him kicked out. I was actually surprised at how few people showed up. Made me very sad for my mom.
Last week I started all my tests...brain MRI, CT scans, and a skeletal survey. Yesterday I had my bone marrow biopsy. It went really well and I didn't feel a thing. I remember most of it (heard the doctor ask for the mallet!!!). I'm a little sore today but at home and taking it easy. I was given strict instructions to not do ANY housework (my husband loves me!). So I've been watching tv, playing on the computer, reading...and slept in until 9:30. woo hoo!
I see Dr. Patel on the 14th for all the results. I keep trying to think positive and that the LCH is localized to my skin. However, I know how things work out for me...2007 I was convinced Kaelyn would NOT have DS, she did; 2008 I was convinced I did NOT have thyroid cancer, I did; 2009 I was pretty sure my mom did NOT have a terminal illness and would fight it and live for quite some time, she did not; so I'm not real convinced this is going to be an easy ride!
