I can barely lift my arms as I type this post (new BodyPump release–ow ow ow), but I must update, cause cool stuff is happening this week! I saw my radiologist yesterday, and she pronounced the boobage free of any signs of fibrosis or any other hinky stuff, so I don’t have to go back for SIX MONTHS. Can we all say YES!! together? Cause..YES!! There was a cute moment when the receptionist asked me if I preferred morning or afternoon and I was all “Um…next February? I have no idea what I’m going to be doing next February–I don’t even have a 2012 calendar yet. hee.”
I actually have loads of appointments to make this week.
Tomorrow, I have my baseline PET scan, then I see my oncologist on Friday. (The camera is down at OMI, so my PET scan has been put off til Tuesday. ) I have to set up an appointment with my gynecologist and then set up my next mammogram and it feels like a LOT of doctor-type stuff is happening, but there is a bit of comfort in knowing that the majority of what I have ahead of me is really just routine stuff. There is a small bit of fear attached to the routine stuff now (WHATIFITCOMESBACK??) …but, I’m not going to dwell on it or let it overtake me.
I had a wonderful time away, and while I am suffering from a tiny bit of jetlag and a very large case of The Tragics (which consists of a lot of sighing and laying around looking like someone stole the stripes out of my peppermints), I’m doing pretty well. My zenfolio subscription expires tomorrow, and I will not be renewing, (because food comes before internet toys), so I will take this time to thank everyone who bought an image from me, or passed the link along so someone else could. Seriously, you guys helped me more than I can say.
There is so much wrong in my life right now that the enormity of it occasionally crushes me, but there is also so much in my life that is right and good and wonderful….and I really do believe the good outweighs the bad. It nearly always has.
