Good news...PET scan is negative for cancer. Shows scar tissue, but Megan can breathe another 6 months.

They will be arriving here on the 24th for a month. I am excited and busy with the stripping of all the bedding and washing it, chasing out the dust bunnies and vanquishing the piles that accumulate in ones spare rooms. Alanna will have her own room, which was Megan's, and Megan and Randy will share the room which was Wills till it became Megan's when she had Alanna some 4 years ago.

I still have to shop, buy diapers, put in for the 1/2 a personal day to pick them up, remake the beds. I am sure it will all come together at the last hour.

And honestly, I don't think they will care HOW it looks as once they are here Megan will say, "there's no place like home".

Till then!

I am so glad for your good news, however, PET scans are not that reliable for LMS. Megan should be having CT scans and following up with MRI's when there is suspicion.

I also forgot to add that if the CT scan showed scar tissue or potential LMS Megan should have scans done again in 2-3 months not 6 months. I hope she is being seen by a specialist in Sarcoma. Regular oncologist don't understand LMS. It can be sneaky and aggressive and LMS sometimes appears to be something else benign. Maybe she can send her scans to Dana Farber in Boston for another opinion. Insurance will almost always cover the cost. I have a strict HMO and they do. You only have one life. Just trying to help. I am also a 2 year LMS survivor.

I have a series of other scans within the next 6 months, but my appointments with the sarcoma specialist aren't until after the holidays. Because of my pregnancy and the complications during and after it, everything had to wait...but now that I have the ball rolling all the appropriate scans will be done (depending on what the doctor says). It took me a few months of looking to weigh out which hospital to go to, but I chose the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center in Nashville. We will find out how they rate in competency, but I have heard great things.
