So he ordered the husband to have a bone survey, a PET scan, bone marrow biopsy, urine test and blood labs. He also wants the husband to see the lung specialist to rule out the very small nodule that was detected on his lung during the upper chest CT scan. He stated it is so small they couldn't even put a needle in it but he wants to cover all bases.
We have the bone marrow biopsy and blood labs scheduled for the morning. I told Dawn the husband was nervous about the biopsy. She performs the procedure and explained the whole process to him from getting numbed up, to hearing the drill, to the brief pain he'll feel has she removes the marrow. It really helped ease his anxiety. The lab tech that assists also reiterated that everything would be fine. Everyone we've encountered at the new cancer center have been SO nice..
As we were getting the appointments set up this afternoon, I mentioned to the lab tech that we had a mutual friend. She looked at me and said, "Oh! You're Butch's mom!" How funny is that! We got a good laugh out of it. Before we leave the clinic tomorrow, we should have the appointments for his additional tests.
Gonna leave y'all with this. The husband eating his salad. He said I needed to take a picture for proof. He really has been putting forth effort to eat healthy.
