After an agonizing 3.5 week wait (note to Future Self: the week before Christmas is not the best time to have specially-processed blood tests drawn), I finally got my tumor marker results. I’ve lost a lot of sleep and had a couple of panic attacks over the past 3 months waiting for these numbers. Fortunately is was all for naught because things were back in the normal range. Thank God.
The reality of my next round of tests is sitting in as I received 9 appointment confirmations from Ochsner in the mail this week. 9 appointments (mostly scans) in 28 hours plus 1 to be scheduled when I get there… I still have hope of sneaking in some Cafe Du Monde time for frozen coffee and beignets.
