DON'T SPEND YOUR LIFE WONDERING "WHAT IF" AND WORRYING OVER SOMETHING YOU HAVE NO CONTROL. WHAT'S DONE IS DONE. LOOKING BACKWARDS WILL CAUSE YOU TO MISS OUT ON NEW BLESSINGS AHEAD. MOVE ON.
Okay. I have been a combo of Wendy Whiner and Debbie Downer this week. I've been mulling over what is ahead concerning my treatment. Monday I go to have my surgeon check out how I am healing. Fine. Do-able. Then next Thursday I will be having a fresh PET scan to see if there are any remaining "sparkles" of cancer anywhere in my body. Can do. But . . . I was informed by the oncologist that IF any sparkles are found in other locations, he would consider me a Stage Four cancer patient!!???!! I guess that means that new cancer is popping up (traveling) and, Honey, that ain't good. IF. That little word can mean a lot of things. IF.
So, I have been a bit down. It really makes you stop and think about your mortality and just how much time you really have on this green earth. I have a bunch of stuff I would like to do in my lifetime, but we all just have to play each day out and see how things go.
NOTE: My computer has been acting up, stopped working again, and I have been cut off from the world for a while. It is now October 2nd, and this is an update of what has happened in the last two weeks.
OCTOBER 2, 2018
Okay . . . I had my newest PET scan done last Thursday. Went to see Dr. Ghosh yesterday Monday) for the results. Honestly, I went into his office with the thought that there was still cancer in my lymph nodes, and possibly elsewhere in my body. Hubby and Jenna were both there to hear the results, too. It turns out that I am clean of any cancer, BUT have to have radiation treatments for follow-up. Yuck! So it's off to meet with the radiologist tomorrow. Anyhoo, I am so grateful for this wonderful news.
I was previously writing about how down and depressed I was. The word "despair" kept floating through my mind. Then really nice stuff began to happen.
THE FABULOUS JANENE. Gotta love him!
GOD BLESS YOU ALL AND GOD BLESS OUR COUNTRY
