I had mixed feelings about going in for his 6 month post-amputation exam. Even though he has been feeling just fine, I wasn't sure I really wanted to know if the deadly seeds of cancer had spread to his lungs, as the doctor cautioned it might. But part of me did want to know, so I could be prepared for what might be next.
I let them give him an x-ray.
It was clean! No visible mets or suspicious spots.
I wasn't really surprised, because I know he's been feeling and acting like his old self. But I sure was glad anyway.
He also had a routine blood test, mostly just to make sure that his liver function is still OK with the continued use of his NSAID prescription.
Good boy, Boomie. Mama loves you.
