Testing Appiontment

As many of you know, Sara gets an MRI scan of her abdominal tumor every 6 months. 

Its time to mark your calendar so you all know when to call and bug me about how it went, as many of you do because you care so much.  And this means that you aren't really bugging me at all.  I love hearing from all of you and sharing with you how it went.

Her first MRI of the year is on Jan. 27th!

At this same appointment she will also have an EMG to check what kind of sensations the nerves in her legs can feel, and she'll also have her PET scan.  We do the PET scan every 2 years, and it is to check to see if any of her tumors have turned malignant.  We don't suspect this to be the case at all, Sara hasn't shown any signs of this, its just routine to be sure.  So don't panic!  I know some of you were for a second there.

Sara will have to be sedated for all of these tests for one reason or another, so this is an all day hospital trip.  But this is just part of the routine in our lives as far as Sara's health care goes.  I just can't believe its already been 6 months since we did the last one.  Crazy how time flies!
