Living on a wing and a prayer

What does this mean apart from a catchy title I liked ?

Firstly, I am well and I am happy.

Just not knowing what is going on in my broken body is my concern; for the future not so much immediate.

I have a few minor pain issues and my wounds are healing well. I can't wait to run again.

So I Googled - It means you are living on the edge and hope for the best 

also ...

Anyway, they all fit .

In music - as Bon Jovi says

Whooah, we're half way there
Livin on a prayer
Take my hand and we'll make it - I swear
Livin on a prayer  

I went into town Saturday to be prayed for at the Healing Rooms , I think it is part of our church but also other Christians are on the prayer team.

Three ladies, I've not met, prayed for my present and future too ; then asked if they could hug me. True story, not weird at all.

Late Friday my husband left a message with his Cancer care nurse, M who works with his Radiation Oncologist Dr S. The Nurse M called back yesterday afternoon with a plan and appointment for Monday afternoon.

Dr S besides being a specialist Radiation oncologist has an interest / specialty in sarcoma (and even a little Breast cancer amongst other things) will take my files/scans to the Sarcoma case management multidisciplinary team next Monday , before my appointment. Then meet with me afterwards.

My husband is going to take, to Sydney, all my scans etc. tomorrow. I feel so relieved to have Dr S opinion on my complex issues.

We've got to hold on ready or not
You live for the fight when it's all that you've got...

That is my earworm for today and this 

Tomorrow*, I am having a Full body bone scan - 'precautionary' for further investigations and Friday I have an MRI of my brain and neck region.

*I must add that the Bone Scan tomorrow is being undertaken specially - as they normally only do them Monday and Friday. I am so thankful for the care I am receiving in my local community too.
