As you can see from my title of this blog I'm doing the happy dance. I've been doing it all day...I did it at Ironwood, I did it in the parking lot, I've been doing it around the house. I'M STILL CANCER FREE!!! My lymph nodes have even shrank so that's the best news I could have gotten today. I don't think the news could have gotten any better. My white blood count is still 1/10th below the minimum but it's climbing. I went from a 3.0 to a 3.9 in the 3 months so that's great. All of my other counts are in range so that is great news as well.
Of course I was pretty nervous for today but deep down I had a good feeling. I figured if it was to come back in the last 3 months I would have "felt" something...but I haven't. My Mom even said I look amazing so there's no way it has come back. I have the cutest head of hair as well and I would HATE to lose it. This hair on my head is here to stay!!!
I was just so happy when PA Scott came into the room and said "well, it's good news!" I just went "whew!" I could care less what he had to say after that, I knew it was good news. Ha. My Mom has also worked her magic and has hopefully started a possible date in my near future with Scott...hahaha. I won't say much about it for fear I may jinx it but I will keep you posted if anything happens. :)
The other great news of the day is that I am DONE with medical crap for 2010! That's right, I don't have to go back for anything until January 25th 2011! I will get another CT scan before that, blood work and then meet with Dr. Nabong and Scott. If all goes well with that scan (which I'm sure it will now) then they will schedule to get my port taken out!! Isn't that great news? I'm not sure if all of this has hit me yet, but I can tell you one thing, I can't stop smiling!!!
So that my friends is the news of the day. THANK YOU all for your thoughts and prayers...they really have worked. I can now enjoy the holidays without a cancer cloud over me, my family or friends. For that I am truly thankful. Don't worry I will continue to write in my blog at least once a week. I enjoy it and I hope you do too! Till the next time...
Love you all--Erin
