I emailed my nurse to follow up Wednesday morning. At 4:15 pm I called her because I hadn't heard from her. She told me that the doctor had been scheduled to review my scans at 6:30 am on Thursday and then she could call me with results. Normally she reviews them and gives me the news if it is good. I was nervous. I asked her if my follow up appointment I had scheduled for June 8th would be with the nurse practitioner or Dr. Callahan. She told me I'd see Dr. Callahan, this was a change. I had been scheduled to see the nurse practitioner.
When I talked to the nurse on Thursday she told me the news. There's an active lymph node which wasn't active in my March scan. The lymph node is located behind my duodenum. Then duodenum is located in the GI tract at the bottom of the stomach/top of the small intestines.
I'm on an airplane right now heading to our first family vacation. We used the flight credit we had from the honeymoon we didn't get to take (due to being in the midst of treatment for cancer round two we had to cancel our honeymoon). We are so excited to go to Orlando and surprise Wylee with a day at Disney, a day at Lego Land, and a special lunch at T-Rex Cafe in addition to the beach and pools. It's time for an awesome week!
The nurse said my case was going for review early this morning (Monday, June 1st) and I should be able to talk to her soon and have an idea of our next steps.
Here I am, holding pattern. Nothing to do but sit, wait, and gear up in case I need to fight round three.
