And the beat goes on

Went to the doctor's today for Mom's signoff visit. Turns out, there is still a spot on her liver which could be scar tissue, cancer, or whatever. They're going to monitor via CA-125 every month for a while, and we'll see what happens.

Not the news I particularly wanted to hear, but not too bad I guess. I wish everyone could get their stories straight. The hospital report says 'scar tissue', but her surgeon is hedging his bets. If they're monitoring her monthly, they should be able to catch any fluctuations in time.

Chemo day tomorrow

I'll be offline from early tomorrow morning until Tuesday afternoon sometime to keep Mom company/scream for help at chemo as necessary.

I doubt I'll need to scream. She did just fine last time with boredom the only worry. Hee, after a busy day like Saturday, having to sit in a recliner and read most of the day doesn't sound too bad. ;) In other words, fingers crossed in a general sense would be nice, but I'm not anticipating trouble.

Saturday, I cut the grass, ran errands, and did 4 hours of revisions to the draft from the review-from-hell. Because I'm a good little worker bee, that's why. Sigh. My conscience is clear about staying out Monday and Tuesday at least.

Today was better. I finished the bracelet I was working on, except for the clasp. That won't take long but necessitates combing through the stash to find a black 8-mm bead and a 2-mm bead of some color that co-ordinates with the rest of the bracelet. It took a couple of hours to finish the main body and by that time, I didn't feel like working on it anymore.

I don't think I'll be in chat Tuesday. If I'm awake at all, I'll probably go to yoga to bake the knots out of my back.

It's CAT scan day

Please keep your fingers crossed everyone. This is where we see if those good blood test results are the real deal.

And my sympathies to anyone who lives in or has family/friends in London. Peace.
