Tests tomorrow

So my bone scan and xray are booked for tomorrow afternoon. I wasn't expecting to get in so soon, but I'm happy that I'll get the tests over with. I guess things must be different now that I'm a patient of my oncologist with confirmed mets. I have no idea when I'll get the results, of course. I don't even know what we'll do with the results, if they're cancer. Will we do radiation and continue with the hormonal (Femara)? Will we try a different hormonal? Will we try chemo? I just don't know. And if it isn't cancer, what is it? I could use that crystal ball now, please.

I'm also feeling pretty icky. My eye was red last night, and I woke up at 4am unable to open it - it was glued shut in that eye-infection sort of way. Yes, it's the return of the eye infection. The other eye is showing signs of being infected, too. Sigh. My throat is also a little scratchy and my ears feel funny, like they're filled with cotton and need draining, but I'm hearing perfectly normally. My nose is alternately too dry and sensitive or runny. I don't know what I have, but I'm pretty sure I'm coming down with something. I managed to sleep some this morning and this afternoon, and I'm pretty much ready for bed now. I'm sure the sleep will help - although the prospect of doing the scans tomorrow while being sick is less than thrilling.

It might be better if Ian and I were sick with the same thing. He is doing much, much better - he went into school for an hour or so today and was able to drive himself, and we were able to walk to the nearby store. He thinks that he'll be on solid foods tomorrow. At least, he certainly craves something more solid than Jello :)
