    If you can go 11 days without smoking with the stress you are under, you can quit for good!!!!!!!!! I know, that's easy for me to say. I am proud of you and praying that no news is good news.

    Marilyn, 11 days! That is so awesome! I sure hope you find out the PET result very soon and, if they're gonna do it, schedule the biopsy! Much love to you! You are in my prayers.

    Many prayers being sent your way from my little rock over here I haven't had any real experience with using steroids for extended periods (other than steroid inhalers, but they're different) but nebulizers are made by the devil I'm pretty sure! I get the shakes so bad, and I can't even control myself. You feel so ridiculous because you're wobbling all over the place and you can't even talk right, you'd swear you were drunk or on some really good drugs, and it's just the darn nebulizer! lol I wish I had thought of Karen's jacuzzi idea when I was taking mine, it would have at least put that shaking to good use

    I hope you hear something soon, waiting is no fun at all!

    I am so proud of you for not smoking 11 days! That's awesome, Marilyn! I know how awful it is to wait for the biopsy, I waited ages, too! It drives you nuts. I don't know why they make people wait so long. They wanna know and they have a right to know quickly, in my opinion.

    Hang in there, honey... *sending many hugs*

    Life is like a party. You invite a lot of people; some go, some join you, some laugh with you, some didnít come. But in the end, after the fun, there would be a few who would clean up the mess with you. And most of the time, those were the uninvited ones.

    CONGRATS on your smoke-free 11 days! WOOHOO!
    I work in medicene, and I've lived long enough to know ' the squeeky wheel gets the grease'!
    If it has been three days since the scan, I would be the first person to park my a$$ at my doctor's office on Monday morning, appointment or not. Pleasantly tell them 'I haven't heard from you, but I need the results of my PET scan, it's been (blank) days'. And go from there.
    If this were me, (because I lack patience when it comes to such things) and I was wearing your shoes, I would not rule-out slightly bawdy behavior, if met with obstinance. This is a BIG DEAL for you, chica!

    I'm reminded of a story my sister told me. Not nearly the same magnitude as yours, but I hope you get my drift...
    Her son and his girlfriend traveled ALL night to Virginia Beach, and arrived at the hotel around 10am, only to be told they couldn't check in until 2pm. They were tired and cranky. My nephew is a passive fellow and just accepted the bad news. His girlfriend, on the other hand, was 3 clicks ahead. She quietly parked herself on the lobby couch, grabbed the TV remote, and cranked-up the volume on the T.V. to an annoying level....
    They were in a room in under an hour.
    And they are now engaged to be married. She's a pharmacist, he's a bartender...lol!

    SQUEEKY wheel get's the grease, my friend!

    Always, my BEST!

    I really need to get off the exclamation point.
    It may give people the idea that I'm bright and cheerful all the time....

    marilyn you are an awesome lady. waiting makes us saints of us all. but saints are proactive. Treat yourself to something good.
    I really dont know where i am going with this except, 1.i hate to think of the worry you are going through, and our mind always takes us away from peace unless we reign it in. I am worse=senario woman. 2. the women on this site are awesome and make us laugh.
    3. You will get better! This place is my steel magnolia type place. the company of women. We are here for you.
    Now that i have rambled on and on and on. I guess what i am saying, is i love ya man, but your not getting my beer.
    I LOVE JESUS

    New York Sue made some very valuable points. I worked in doctor's offices for 22 years before getting my RN...I know that you probably feel like "we-the medical folk" don't care...but believe me when I tell you we/I do. I'm not making excuses for any doctors or their offices...but you have to realize how many people they see in a day. With that being said, I agree 150% with Sue. If it has been 3 days since the scan and you have not heard anything from the doctor...CALL THE OFFICE AND EXPRESS YOU CONCERNS! Tell them you want the doctor to CALL YOU BACK IF HE/SHE CANNOT TALK TO YOU AT THAT PARTICULAR MOMENT. If they want to make you an appointment to come in to see the doctor, tell them you want the soonest appointment AND you want the doctor to call you back. Be persistent...be that squeaky wheel. As a nurse it is important to me to make sure the patient knows she/he is in total command of your body and you have every right to know what is going on as soon as possible!

    Lecture over! Now, Congrats on quitting the smoking (now, don't be a fool and start back up). 11 days have gone by, the nicotine is out of your system...now it is conquering the craving...substitute the action of smoking with something healthier...walking, quilting, net surfing...I'm sorry you are having to face whatever it is that is going on! We are here for you to turn to...you know that for sure!

    Remember...SQUEAK, SQUEAK, SQUEAK.......
    Hang in there Marilyn!
    Pat

    PS...there are steroids in the inhaler/nebulizer too! Take advantage of the extra energy and do something to burn it off...wash windows or something (or not). LOL!
