Surgeon Appointment Update…

scapel.jpgWell, we met with our surgeon today. Good news, again!! I hope I keep the good news streak going. He is not going to do any surgery in the foreseeable future. Why, you ask? He noted that there is not much cancer in there. What I think he is benchmarking against is my before surgery condition last fall. Either way, he said that there is not much in there, it is growing slowly, chemo is working to keep it at bay, so why go in an mess things up!!

YEAH for me! No surgery for awhile! We can now plan a summer vacation that we didn’t know if we would be able to take. The kids will like that!!

So, I am continuing to stay in a good place, both mentally and physically. The chemo weeks still really stink, but I can endure a few days ever other week to keep this under control and eventually beat this thing!

REFUSING TO LOSE!!
