Day 8 – Oh Happy Day!

The bone scan was clean—no spreading of cancer! Woo-hoo!
The day started at 3:00 AM with a trip to the bathroom (TMI, I know…) and me being unable to fall back asleep from there. Random thoughts about anything and everything just bounced around inside my head.
I made it to work and by 10:00 AM, began to get uptight about the 11:15 AM appointment. Luckily, the doctor was running almost on schedule. I was in the exam room by 11:20, he arrived by 11:30, and I was on the phone to my sister at noon with the good news.
I had two meetings scheduled after lunch, and by the end of the second one, I was out of gas. Between the 3 AM wake-up and being a bit more uptight about the results that I expected, I’m toast. This cancer crap is exhausting!
So that’s two days in a row that have been pretty positive. Let me chart that in a spreadsheet with a linear regression trend line!
Next step: A nap.

    Happy to hear this good news!!I know your journey isn't over dealing with this, but now you can move forward knowing it hasn't spread. Your blog is such a good idea. You should write a book you have a knack for writing.
    Hugs and continued prayers.

    Lori Thanks for the call. I was about 30 minutes from calling you but I didn't want to crowd the landscape. What a relief!! Dan- sounds like you have a plan and are in the process of working it.
    I know that sometimes too much info can be counter productive but don't forget my offer to hook you up with my friend, Doug, who has gone through this experience.
