!! 100 !!

This is my 100th post, y'all!  And in a couple months, I'll be hitting the one-year mark!

FIRST....an update on Dave :)

He got the results today on his most recent CT scan.  His doctor says that everything looks good as in unchanged.  He's more confident now that his two para-aortic lymph nodes are most likely calcified and perhaps have been calcified all along.  The only way to tell FOR SURE would be to take them out and biopsy them...but because they're unchanged and not causing a problem, there's no need to do that.  If his lymph are (and have always been) calcified, that would have changed his initial staging from 2B to 1.  BUT, the course of action (including chemo) would have been the same.  His next CT scan is scheduled for February, then another one in August.  If those look good, then he won't have another scan until the following August.  Everything's looking good so far, so we're SO GLAD to have kicked this thing in the rear for the foreseeable future (and hopefully, fingers crossed, forever)!

I've been reading that the 100th post should contain a list of 100 things you don't know (or maybe you do!) about me.

  20. I'm a habitual non-blinker user if I'm already in a "turn only" lane...I'm already in the right-turn-only lane, why do I need to signal to you with a blinker that I'm turning right?

  55. If I had unlimited money, I'd pay off all my family's houses and build them brand new custom ones
  56. I have resting bitch face
  57. I don't say "sorry" often...but when I do, I mean it

  75. I'm seriously wishing I had NOT undertaken this "100 things" list....I'm honestly not that interesting

  78. I'm considering (for the last four years) going back to school for early childhood education...I think 2nd or 3rd grade would be fun
  79. I thought, briefly, in college of changing my major to Psychology because I found it (still find it) so fascinating
