One Year

A few days ago I had what amounts to my one year checkup.  They did an ultrasound only on the area where the gall bladder was to check on an air bubble they thought was there and also viewed my right kidney at the same time.  Bloodwork was great.  All levels are back up.  Kidney not doing as well though and the oncologist thinks it might be from radiation damage.  I'm to see a nephrologist (sp?) kidney doctor and when they did further tests she felt it might be a kidney infection so gave me antibiodics and told me to see a urologist too.  They obviously cover all bases. 

I do not have to have a scan in December which both elates me and makes me a bit nervous.  Should one be done to scan my whole body in case spawn of harvey shows up somewhere else?  I guess it was my safety net and not having that makes me a bit nervous.  At the same time it makes me feel more normal.  I even renewed my quilt mag subscription for three years.  Keeping that positive attitude. 

Just thought I would update everyone still reading this and to add to my 'diary' of sorts.  Hope that this finds everyone well.  Be well, Marilyne
