HEALTH UPDATE: I’ve said it before. I’m a miracle. The Pet scan has revealed little to no activity in the tumor monster. My case was presented to the tumor board and they think it would be advantageous to remove what they can. I will be meeting with a surgeon in the next week or so for details. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’m sort of speechless right now. I’m sitting here at Carbone, waiting for my miracle concoction. I’m replaying the conversation with my oncologist. It was about an hour ago now. Still processing. Did she say what I think she said? Have we slayed the tumor monster? I know we’ve kicked it’s ass at a minimum. WHAT THE FUCK?!!!!! I’m sorry Mom. It slipped!!
Leading up to this appointment has been hard. I’ve done nothing for two days waiting for what seemed an eternity for an explanation of this scan. I feel absolutely crazy and now realize how fragile my mind actually has been the past few years. It all came back in a rush.
I’m excited to meet with the surgeon. I understand this is not a sprint. There will be much to consider. I have so many questions. I have the luxury of time to gather information, assess and decide. I have learned today that my trial is not a hard stop. I can continue on with my miracle concoction until decisions are made. I will lean heavily on those who know me best to make decisions. I’ve learned so much. I know now, how much I need support and help.
So today I will exhale. I will recover from the anguish of the unknown and celebrate my big win. I can’t stop thinking if all who have helped me along the way. Thank you. THANK YOU! Thank you. From the bottom of my heart. THANK YOU!
