stand4hope Posted May 9, 2005 Share Posted May 9, 2005 Thanks again to everyone who answered my question about the lymph node, both on the board and in PMs. The onc wants to wait and check the lump himself before doing more scans. Scans were just done in March (and they weren't great then), so I don't know about getting new ones. I told the onc if he needs them and the ins. company won't pay so soon, we'll pay for them ourselves. He has a great insurance company, so hopefully they will pick up the tab. We already had an appointment for late Friday afternoon, so he will also decide what to do about the left hip pain at the same time, which is still pretty mild. It bothers him more when sitting, sleeping and when he first gets up. It seems to let up a little when he moves around some. I will post an update and the new plan Friday night or Saturday. Our son is still in the hospital, blood test results up and down like a yo-yo. We are still hoping he shows big improvement this week, they can start introducing food, and he will get to come home soon. It's just another wait and see. The nurses are getting to know me so well that I get hugs now when I go on the floor. That's ok, I always say that if it moves, I'll hug it, so I just hug right back. Wait - wait - wait - wait. It seems that all we do is WAIT! Love and hugs to everyone, Peggy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
