All is looking good!

  Today was a nerve wracking visit of course.  I did go upstairs and see the nurses, they seemed happy.  My gratitude outweighs my fear.  Not my fave place to revisit, but just the same I wanted to see one nurse in particular... She was in fact working downstairs today... I saw her, we hugged, chatted, it was great...

I had a mini-cry fest waiting for the results in the docs office, once I was in the back.  At one point I said to the nurse something along the line, of look this isn't like waiting for my gynecologist... she quickly went to grab the person who has worked with me all this time....

When she came in she was talking about the sheet I had filled out with current symptoms, in less than a minute I snapped about the labs..... Everything looked good, a low count on some cells, but nothing concerning.

Though it's been over a year, 13 months or so, it is not simple to go to those appointments, and the idea of doing it for the next four or however many doesn't sound enticing, but I am very grateful that I am well today.  <3 <3 <3

Another Update and Labs Today

  Hey, I haven't written since I had my scan in November which was clear!  In under an hour I go for follow up blood work.  These appointments are nerve wracking and though I love the people who work there, I just want to never have to go back.  Remission lasts for five years, then I am considered a survivor, well I've gone into my philosophy on that topic. I am a survivor!!!  Anyway,  I just wanted to throw up an update, and will of course edit this later or post again saying all is well... :)

I am thinking of going up into the nurses station and saying hi, I haven't been back up there since my last chemo treatment.  They are wonderful, and I would like to say thank you (again, I'm pretty sure I've said it)..... eek but I don't like the idea of going in there..... See how I feel, I hate seeing people sick with that jazz.....

Oh and about my hair... I will post again after it's lightened, with a pic.... and... life is great!!! Love you guys!!!
