When you wish upon a star...Cycle 2, Day 17
No chemo this week, but a trip to the hospital this morning for Steve's CT scan and an X-ray to assess the effectiveness of the treatment to date. Joy of joy! No hitches today - a smooth operation from start to finish.
We arrived early for the CT scan appointment in the hope that Steve could be fitted in for the un-timed X-ray beforehand. It turned out to be a good tactic. He was X-rayed within a few minutes of arrival before the queues built up, and in good time for the CT scan, which happened on schedule.
10-15 minutes over coffee in the cafe before leaving hospital, just to make sure there was no adverse reaction to this morning's procedures, then home. Now we wait for the assessment, fingers crossed that all will be well when we get the results next week.
Steve calculates that this is his 3rd CT scan and 7th X-ray since the first exploratory visit to the hospital back in May. It's a wonder he isn't twinkling like a star!
Which reminds me, watch out for the Perseid shooting stars tonight and make a wish for a positive outcome for Steve, if you are lucky enough to see one....
