Dr. appt

Today I had an appointment to see Dr. Euhus, my surgeon. I was long overdue to see him as I had missed an appointment back in September. However, when I found out I had some auxiliary nodes light up in the PET scan, I knew I should see him. He is the one who would remove these lymph nodes if necessary.

He was happy to see me and wants me to start seeing him again every three months. He could not feel any node inflammation on a physical exam, but wanted me to have an MRI anyway to see the area more clearly. His nurse got me an appointment right then, so I had the MRI right after seeing the doctor.

I should get a call with the results Tuesday or Wednesday. I should say that Dr. Euhus thought that surgery would not be necessary at this point. Yea! I am glad to see he is both proactive and positive about the scenario.

My dad flew in from Portland this afternoon for a weekend visit. We were all so happy to see him! We have a busy weekend with soccer, basketball, cotillion, and musical rehearsals...but it should be fun.

Take care,
