Finally the March 2013 update

Oops, haven't updated in a long while.  Sorry for those who follow closely.

March oncologist visit...  The MRI was on a Thursday, oncologist appointment with update - Friday.  Dr. Needles came in the room & read the report stating "No change & looks good."  He then proceeded to give me the normal cognitive testing.  Went smoothly.  All in all he wants me to GO ONE YEAR BETWEEN SCANS.  I was elated to say the least.  I think this was a first for me to feel some relief / excitement with a clear scan report.  Each time I would come away feeling Hmm, that is nice... cannot fully express my feeling / emotions.  I had desired to go one year between scans for what seems like FOREVER.  Although Dr. Needles wanted me to come in October (6 months) for a cognitive testing.  March or April 2014 will be my next MRI.  Of course, if I feel / sense anything I can "always call" the doctor. 
I did have a migraine a few weeks prior to the March 2013 MRI & was relieved to hear that my brain matter is clear of cancer. If I don't rest or overdo it a few days in a row my brain will let me know.  I nap almost every day.

Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker; for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care.  
Psalm 95:6-7

March MRI scheduled

Just wanted to let you know that the MRI is scheduled for March.  I plan on seeing the oncologist Friday, March 15 in the morning so my MRI with blood work is scheduled the Thursday (14th) before.

The following verses in Isaiah have been an encouragement to me today.  Hope you are blessed by reading.

Isaiah chapter 43  "Do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing. Do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland."
