Update - Last Week

Last Thursday we had to travel to the WVU Cancer Center for my 6 month PET scan. As you all know this is to keep track of any progression of the Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Arriving at 7:30 A.M. for lab, we finished the PET scan at 10:30. We waited a long while to see Dr. Craig. After 1:30 we were finally shipped to the infusion area so I could start the Rituxan infusion for the rheumatoid arthritis. This infusion takes several hours.

Dr. Craig stopped by around 5 P.M. and gave us the good news that the PET scan was clear with no cancerous tumors. HURRAY!

I got the idea to stop on our way home and see the last Harry Potter movie.

The movie was great. We needed supper so it was off to Eat and Park for breakfast. We finally arrived home before 11 P.M. It was a long, but good day.

On Friday morning, I went around the house and was nailed on the hand by a female paper wasp. OUCH! I am doing still doing ice packs, benadryl, and hydrocortisone cream.

Tomorrow I will post some more vegetative pics!
