It seems that my summers are like this...busy but in a good way. I love it! I love seeing my friends and family and showing them where some of my favorite spots are.

ANOTHER PET SCAN COMING UP!
So this coming Thursday the 12th I am going in again for my 4th PET scan. I haven't seen my oncologist for 2 months. The appointment with him to determine the results of the PET scan is on the 17th...I will keep you all posted. I am hoping that it is going to be looking even better than the last time. I will be honest, I have been worrying about it lately. I've been so tired, sometimes sleeping all day long, going to bed and sleeping all night and waking up just as tired as I was before all the sleep. My liver aches still, some days more than others, but every time I feel it I can't help but worry "is it coming back?" "what will the scan say?" "will they tell me that I have to get chemo again?" UGH!
I have been really frugal lately, another reason that I hate going out. One meal at a restaurant can buy 3-4 days worth of veggies for me. I rarely drive anywhere anymore. It saves money (gas) and I need to get my brakes replaced which is something I cannot afford to do right now. My car has been parked in the lot of my apartment building for almost 2 weeks now. Another reason I don't go out. I am waiting for my dad to get settled into his new place and then I will be taking my car up there and working on fixing brakes together in his garage. I know it can't be that hard and my family (including me) are all handy like that :)
In the meantime, the sun is shining here in Portland, its in the mid 80's, the birds are singing, the grass is green and the roses are blooming. Funny, I feel like less of an "oddball" or "outsider" when I am in the woods, no pressure to go to the bar, the trees and I can just sit quietly and enjoy each others company.
