Another Test

I am on google search alerts for anything written about LMS, whether an obituary, a doctor's article, a blog. I have read a lot of stories about hope, treatment, struggle, and sometimes death. This morning I read about a 35 year old woman who just lost her three year battle with LMS. A tear slid down my face, sad for her, her new husband, family, and co-workers who had to say goodbye to her. She was too young.

Megan is on year two. She just had another PET scan yesterday, long over due since she got pregnant and the last one done was about 9 months ago. Spots appeared on the scan, but they are hoping that it is scar tissue from the tumors which will show on such a scan.

She won't get the results for a while yet, and the doctor whom she is dealing with is away anyway. Megan is going to visit a friend, and I told her to have a great time, that there would be nothing she could do at the moment anyway if the spots were more than scar tissue, so live it up, and do a lot of laughing. Be in the moment.

I will be back in a few weeks to post the results. In the meantime we all live, love, and laugh as much as we can.

Happy Halloween!
