Fantastic doctor appointment
After being up most of the night with worries, I was able to come home today from my appointment and take a long nap.
I saw my wonderful gynoc today and received excellent news. She can't see any cancer for now, Yay Yay Yay. I went in early for a chest/abdom/pelvic CT scan and blood test, as part of my usual 6 month routine.
Because of the ongoing abdominal issues, I was concerned that cancer may be returning, especially since I still sleep almost 12 hours per day.
She spoke to those issues and said that I just need to keep exercising, and keep doing more, because I am getting better.
I distinctly remember that my overwhelming joy today was so different from my emotion this time last year. Last year I was cautious, numb from chemo, super tired, and really couldn't believe I had made it. NOW, I am here with great results and plan to cherish each precious moment God gives me.
Even though the vocational testing indicates me to be cognitively challenged right now, I am going to do all I can to get my brain back together and working well.
But at the end of the day, if today is how the rest of my life goes, I am the luckiest person on earth.
Thank you God for bringing me my doctor and family and friends to help me survive the incredible challenge of ovarian cancer. I will post more on this, I just wanted to get the exciting news out.
Peace, Love and God Bless
