Scanxiety Week again

Tuesday, January 26, 2010

Hi everyone,

Just a really short and quick update! Its scans week this week. MRI head, MIBG and CT scan for the next three days.

The kids are excited about going home and I am frantically, yet happily packing!
Charmaine has quite bad nose bleeding this time around with Accutane. Rushed to hospital last friday because the nose bled for more than 20mins and wouldnt stop.

Today, we had another bout of nose bleed but it wasnt as horrifying as last friday.
I am very concerned about her nose during the flight back because the air up there would be even drier. Spoke to doctor but they said they cannot do anything except to apply pressure to nose if it happens. Oh well, why am I not surprised.

Anyway, still tons to be done so I cant write much. I will update everyone of her scan results once I get them. Have explicitly told the doctor and NPs that I NEED to know ALL her RESULTS before I board my plane! And I will of course 'pester' them if I have to, just to know her results. Else I will never leave with a peace of mind!

Hi Cyn,

I understand the anxiety you are going through. Take one day at a time, and hope for the very best,
I will continue to pray for Charmaine and your family.
Please take care.
