Needing lots of prayers and a bit of luck just now!  :thumbup:

Wednesday 22, I'm having the MRI brain scan and an Echocardiogram test to make sure that the cancer has not migrated to my brain. My Oncologist thinks that the risk that it has spread is very low, but still the risk is there, so there is a small bit of stress going on here. I'm not freaking out, but I am feeling a little nervous.  :whistle1:

Oh, so that's what's wrong with your brain. I thought it was old age...

Lots of prayers coming your way, bro!

Well, that were fun.  laughing7

In and out in about 3.5 hours for both tests and both took way less time than advertised. The Echo-cardiogram was about 15 minutes and the MRI brain scan was about 25 minutes, both were scheduled for one hour each.

No results will be available until at least Friday, so it will be a long wait... but, the MRI tech did say that I could call the imaging clinic if my Doctor is not in on Friday, so at least we won't have to wait until Monday or Tuesday of next week.

Thanks Steve, so are we.  :thumbup:

Next is the chemo treatments... going to see my Dr later today and she is set to start me on the Votrient. The hope is that it will hold at bay the cancer in my kidney bed and lungs and I'm actually feeling rather good about that because we caught this very early on.
