Leaving Soon for Houston

We’re leaving for Houston this coming Sunday. I have my schedule of procedures in hand for the two week stay. Some tests I’ve had many times before like CTs and MRIs. The Octreoscan (a 3-day scan) I’ve had a couple of times. Then there will be a MUGA scan, bone scan, renogram and PET scan, all of which will be new to me. All of that takes place during our first week there. Meeting with the doctor, and the actual PRRT procedure happen the second week. I’ll be sure to keep everyone posted along the way here on this blog.

Today included an hour spent at the lab while they deciphered the myriad orders for blood and urine tests. I’ll be back again Wednesday and Thursday to get all of the preliminary tests out of the way.

Also over the past few weeks I’ve received many more donations from friends old and new. My buddy Derek was kind enough to post this site on our high school class Facebook page and I’m hearing from people that I literally haven’t seen in 30 years. Go Dolphins! I continue to be overwhelmed by everyone’s support and generosity. The total raised to date is $44,606.22.  I can’t overstate the positive impact of the financial burden of this stressful situation being lifted from my shoulders. Thank you all!

More posts soon, and many posts from Houston.
