Taking my show on the road....

and I'm going to Reno.
To see a Dr. Forsyth at the Cancer Screening and Treatment Center of Nevada.
To hopefully get some answers. And some hope.
They are sending me a 48 page application to fill out and bring back with me. Yikes.

This has all happened so fast.
Talked to them on the phone today. They said they could get me in at 11am on Dec. 31st (Monday). That freaked me out since it's already Thursday. So she got me in at 10am on Thurs. Jan. 3rd. That gives me one week to get ready and get my family covered and my arrangements made. eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek. I'm freaking out. (If you saw my house right now, you'd freak out too. The holidays weren't kind to it!)

I'm going to liquidate my retirement fund to help pay for it. Which is really really scary but so is cancer. Did I say eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek yet? eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek!
Ok, off I go to make calls and fill out paperwork and liquidate accounts. Schedule hotels and airfare. Yikes!!!

I will try and keep you updated via the blog. Maybe my hubby will let me hijake his laptop for the road. But if you don't hear from me, don't worry. I've got my hands full with cancersuperhero boot camp. Wish me luck!!!

Love to you all!!
