Today was the day we all EXPECTED to get the PET scan results - at my appointment with Dr. Kebria this afternoon. And even though getting the news surprisingly and excitingly early yesterday was awesome, today's visit was even MORE awesome than we expected.
Sitting in the exam room with Dr. Kebria and Erin, I was just beaming. I had no idea it could get even BETTER - but it seems like that was all that happened. It just kept getting better and better and better!!!
First, Dr. K actually said the words "The cancer is gone." It was the greatest thing my ears have ever heard. Until he said, shortly thereafter , "She is more than likely cured." WHAT?! Somehow that sentence really drove it home!!! I was just floored.
But that's not all the good news! (Can you believe it just keeps getting better?) Those (EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE) PET scans... the ones I thought I'd have to be getting every three, then six, then twelve months? Yeah, NOPE! I am D-O-N-E with PET scans! I just have to go back for a check-up and PAP test every three months for the next five years. That's IT! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeehaw! I feel so relieved. My pocketbook feels so relieved. Even my stupid insurance company is probably so relieved!
I still feel like I am in shock. Driving somewhere (I can't even remember where already) today, I realized I had no real idea what day it was or what time it was. Everything feels like a dream. I honestly cannot believe it.
So happy. not just for me, but happy to see Ryan look relaxed, happy, calm, RELIEVED. Happy to see my mum looking as baffled and smiley as I feel. Happy happy happy.
Nothing could be better right now. Absolutely nothing...
