mom has her pet scan tomorrow morning, i’m already panicking

so mom just called me. she got a call from the hospital this afternoon. her pet scan is tomorrow morning at 11 AM. she has to fast from midnight tonight. the nurse told her that in the morning she has to keep very warm, make sure the heat stays in her body. when she goes in theyll inject her with a dye. once they do that she has to lay down for an hour and let the dye go through her system. then shell be taken for her scan. my aunt who is her sister is going to take her because laura couldnt as she has induction tomorrow for her new job. my aunt said shed stay with her the whole time so that is good. i would have gone too but i have my volunteering down at the basement club tomorrow morning. on thinking about it its probably best i dont go. im starting to worry already and it hasnt even happened yet. she wont get any results tomorrow, and its going to be another week before she has her biopsy. i just hope everything goes off ok. now that its actually happening im kind of panicking. its actually becoming very real to me that this could be serious and maybe somethings really wrong. i guess i was in a little bit of denial for the last few days since moms been doing so good physically. ill keep you all posted as to how it goes and how she gets on tomorrow. could use a little bit of support tonight though to get through.

  1. Praying for you and your mom . For you, just remember a couple of times tonight to just breathe. And just one step at a time…that is it…just focus on the one step….the rest will happen when you get there.

  2. First, my mindset became more “triumphant” when I re-named myself as, “TheConqueress”… maybe come up with The Champ, or, MsVictorious, with/for your mom…???
    May it be that one of the things that helped me make it through also help you…
    My self-help mantra was to frequently repeat as inner talk about how fortunate I am to have access to any healthcare & not need to spend my life schlepping water across the wildlands barefooted & how I can lay down to rest out of the elements & how I can access fresh produce… on & on & on like that really helped me beat the “…5 years, tops…” prognosis given in March 2000!
    Also, a support group member told me, “Remember, we are individuals, not statistics, and, they are only PRACTICING medicine…”
    Keep hope alive!
