Bye bye cancer

So, it’s official. In the tissue taken during Friday’s surgery, there was “No residual tumor.” The cancer is gone.

Thank God.

Even better, in the short run, after my surgeon told us this, he removed the last drain. There’s still some pain and numbness and muscle strain on the left side of my body, but without the port there, it feels so much better already.

And I won’t see another doctor for almost 3 whole days, when I go in to the radilogists to set up 6 weeks of radiation. Which I used to be worried about. But there’s no more cancer, so I can face the radiation a little better.

And I bet I’ll eat those words sometime in the next 6 weeks!

    prep’ing for tomorrow’s classes I’d have a celebratory drink for you right now .. but it’ll happen later
    this evening. Whohooo!!
