I had my PET scan on Wednesday. You know, THE PET scan. The one that determines what 2012 is going to look like.

In the past, I’ve usually been able to find the results of my tests by accessing my own health records at the hospital – I usually know what the results are before the doctors tell me. The one time I wasn’t able to do that was for the results of the biopsy that determined I had cancer – the biopsy was done at a different hospital than the one that I’m employed at. I had to wait to hear whether I had cancer or not from my doctor. So I’m torn about the results of the PET scan. Do I wait and hear the results the right way, from my doctor (in a week and a half)? Or do I get the results of my scan, good or bad, by looking it up myself? Do I want to read it from a printout or hear it from a familiar voice? I’m not particularly anxious, but I do want to know. (sigh) I haven’t made up my mind yet…
In other news, the exercise program I’ve been doing at Wellspring is winding down. I have my last class next week, and I’m really, really going to miss it. It’s been a lot of fun working out with other patients, and the trainers are so engaging. Not only that, I feel stronger, stronger than I have in a long time. I’m also really happy that I’m losing weight – well, everywhere EXCEPT my waistline. Honestly – why is the waistline never the first to go? I would have happily kept the bigger cup size instead!!
Anyways, I’m going to try to find a new fun way to work out. Learn to swim, maybe. A martial art. A marathon. The possibilities are endless…
Have a blessed Easter, everyone!
