And the results are………
No sign of cancer cells anywhere in my body. Can anyone say “Total Remission”? I can, cause I’m livin’ it. I still have to go for six months of “maintenance chemo” so my brain isn’t quite set on the “cured” yet. My heart is soaring though.
Thanks to everyone who helped me through this. It’s been a long road, and there is no guarantees that it will never show up again, but for now, for now, I will gladly take “remission”. So crack a cold one for me tonite, raise your glass to the heavens and give a toast to whoever is running the ship. I am officially a 1%’r. Only 1% of the people with my type of cancer beat it twice. The gods have smiled upon me again.
Now on to other stuff. As you can imagine it’s been a strange week for me. Seems like my meds have been off and I’m losing/misplacing things. Strange things are happening in my world and I’m just seeing it. I’ve been taking photo’s of mushrooms lately just cause they are fascinating but this past week I haven’t found any. No weather changes or anything. Just no fungus. Well today Oscar and I stopped and picked up Pookie (the little Scottie from crossed the street). Her owner is having problems getting around now and she uses a cane so Pookie is getting a little porcine. I figured we were doing the mile and she could use it. So we were halfway around the block and I suddenly realized that there was a tree full of birds up ahead. I’m talking hundred of sparrows just chirping their little hearts out. I kept staring at the tree, thinking what a wondrous sight and sound I was experiencing when I looked down. There on the ground was one of their fallen. The birds were mourning one of their own. I walked right under this tree, with birds 3-4 inches from my face. They didn’t move. Just kept chirping.
Joe took me to Max and Erma’s to celebrate. Since swallowing is a bit of a problem right now, I feasted on French Onion soup. It was delish, as always. So now we’re home. I need to get Oscar fed, take my meds and cuddle up in my big red chair and just treasure this little pearl I have in my heart “cured” is such a cool word.
Have a lovely, lovely evening my friends.
