Quick Health Update

Hi. I spent the morning at my cancer center. I left the house at 5 AM and was there before 6. I began with a blood draw at 6:25 AM, an IV inserted at 8:00 AM, a CT scan of my head & neck area at 8:15 AM, and a clinic visit with my oncologist at 9:45 AM. The exam was finished by 10 AM. All-in-all, a very quick efficient visit. My doctor thought I was doing great and looked well. He won't have the CT scan results for a few days. Given how compromised my neck area is from past surgeries and radiation, he is reluctant to give me a diagnosis on his reading of the scan. But, I could tell that he'll be surprised if there is any areas of concern that pops up from the radiologist's reading of my CT scan. Barring any unexpected turns for the worse, my next visit will be scheduled for late September (in 3 months). I haven't gone that long between visits since this ordeal began over 4 years ago. My anxiety level is reduced and I'm feeling good.

Thanks for checking in. Good health to you all.
