A sigh of relief.

So I went in today to get my blood drawn to have my tumor marker test or in real person terms to see if my levels have risen and they think cancerous tumors are taking over my body once again. Of course I insisted that a nurse read me my MRI results from last week since I was anxious about it. I was proud of myself that I hadn't called the office bugging them for it before now. She said everything was normal and hadn't changed from the previous scan......thank goodness. I will get my results from the blood draw today at my appointment next week. I also took the opportunity to distribute some little cards advertising my online support group message board to the cancer centers in the area and radiation doctor and the breast diagnostic center up in Fort Collins in the same complex.
We then set off to Kohls since I had heard they were having a killer sale and I really needed to get a bathing suit that fit me. I haven't had a new one since before I was diagnosed and now they all of course don't fit me right. I found a few that I liked and also some good stuff on clearance. I have also been looking for some new pots and pans. The ones that Jon and I got after we were married have the Teflon peeling off the bottoms. It's so irritating because they were pretty pricey when we bought them. There was a set on sale at Kohls and then I had an extra 15% off coupon so that was a pretty good deal. It did turn out to be one of those nightmare shopping trips with the kids though. Since I had to chase them all over the hospital campus passing out those cards I told them they had to stay in the cart at the store. I think Alex seriously cried 90% of the time we were there. I was so irritated at her, but she really isn't like that very often. She was crying every time she bent her finger the wrong way today though. After we got home and had dinner she passed right out on the couch. 7pm and she is fast asleep. Wow.....that has um, NEVER, happened. She is always going a mile a minute. It has been a quite night already which has been nice.
