Short, but sweet tonight.
Today was another 6 month follow up with my oncologist. I’ve been so looking forward to graduating to that 1 visit per year stage that I was pretty disappointed when some of my labs didn’t let that happen six months ago.
Today, the labs were on the money. I’m over 5 years out, I’m fully cancer free.
I can come back for a follow up in anywhere from 6 to 12 months.
So, Lara and I split the difference. 9 months, it is! 😉
Lara watched me waiting for my appointment with my usual anxiety today. My poor cuticles bear sad testament (yes, I am the person with THAT kind of anxiety).
She asked me, “are you really worried? Should you be?”
It’s funny. I’m afraid to NOT be worried. It’s like my anxiety has become a superstition. If I’m not anxious, I’m gonna get it! Ack!
Still, compared to even a year ago, I don’t have the fear perched on my back like an 800 pound gorilla.
So, not a writing update at all – just a happy little stream of consciousness.
Cancer free. Every day. All day long.
Blessings to you all!
