Just got a text from my doc (times have changed, right!?) and the final report on the lymph node came back negative, showing no signs of cancer!! I would do a happy dance, but I’m still a little too sore for that! Relieved tears of joy will have to do today.
It is a tremendous relief. Tre.men.dous. I feel like I can breathe again. For six months I’ve sat here knowing that cancer was in my body. Waiting for chemo to end and to have surgery to fully know what we are dealing with. And now finally, the unknowns are known.
Patience is not my greatest strength. When I’m done with something, I’m really done and ready to move on. This process has been long, and there will be worries of reoccurrence in the future. But for now, I’ll be working on practicing patience and gratefulness as I heal. And continue to remind myself daily that even though the path was difficult, I am so grateful for it helping to rid my body of cancer.
