JHH Appointment Tomorrow

Now that things with the house are calming down, tomorrow is my appointment at Johns Hopkins Hospital. I am going to have blood work, get a CT scan, and then talk with my oncologist. The Captains are staying home together.

I am hoping for a good result tomorrow, but I am worried. I guess I am worried before every scan. I just realised that I forgot to take my steroids (prednisone) starting at 12:50 this afternoon. Ugh. Anyhow, the medical oncologist on call this evenning called me back VERY promptly and advised me that I can take the steroids on a slightly modified schedule and still be fine. (As I think I've mentioned before in this blog, I am allergic to intravenous iodine, and that is what is used as contrast for the CT scans, so I have to take steroids to prepare for the scan. The steroids have side effects of their own, but while they are unpleasant, they are not too bad. I do kind of dread taking them, so maybe that's why I forgot today.)

Will update this blog after I get home tomorrow afternoon.
