Next Steps

Just a note for those that want to know what is next.

It is simply the waiting game. 

The bone marrow test results take time.  They have to incubate or something for a specified amount of time and there is no way to hurry it up.  The PET scan should already be back, and perhaps Dr. Glenn has maybe even already looked at it.  The initial purpose of the PET scan was due to some abdominal pain Tiffany had been feeling just below her rib cage.  The doc suggested that she expected to see nothing, but with Tiffany's past (for those that may not have known, there was Melanoma found, and successfully removed back in 2003 - though once you had it, you have a higher chance to see it later) and current situation, she doesn't want to leave any stone unturned. 

Our next appointment is next Thursday, February 28.  Which we should have the info back from the tests and have a better idea of what will happen next, or at least the options open to us.

And with that, we will enjoy the next week - trying not to think about the results or what they could mean.  Because, why should we allow peace to be destroyed by what may or may not be?

After realizing how precious life is, we won't take for granted the good times we have together.
