Holidays came Early!

As you all know, i had 3 scans on Friday. With so much happiness and excitement, relief and JOY, the news i am sharing with you is GOOD SCANS! Though there is still cancer in my body, there was overall shrinkage of 54%!!!!  Friday was grueling as i wasn’t allowed to eat before my first scan which was the CT. Then the schedule was so hectic because i had 2 more, brain mri and bone scan. By the time it was over i was super Hangry!!! One of the nurses sensed my “hangriness” and laughed with me about it. Finally after the bone scan was finished around 1:30 pm, i made my way to the hospital’s cafeteria, then headed home. While driving back, my oncologist called me. I told him right away i was driving because if it was bad news everything was bound to go black and running off the road was not in my best interest. However, he proceeded to tell me he usually doesn’t give information over the phone, but he couldn’t contain himself and that the 7.5 cm tumor in my liver shrunk to 2.5 cm!!! I have’t experienced such bliss in awhile. Even at a CRB show!!!! Ha! I screamed, laughed a laugh i never heard before that turned to tears and smiles and more tears and laughs all coming together in a symphony of  sound! I told my oncologist i loved him,  and he said to have a great weekend. I did. Friday night we ordered Thai food and Billy and I watched the final episode of season 7’s Walking Dead. Could not have been in a more blissful state. We bought our tree this weekend to the delight of our girls, Izzy and Abby, and celebrated Izzy’s 11th birthday with her friends at Dave and Busters. THEN, i found our more good news on my Brain MRI. NO CANCER IN MY BRAIN STILL!!!! This was also a huge relief as i have been having headaches more than usual so was very nervous this could be a reality. Now i know i just need to drink MORE WATER… especially to flush that chemo out. 10th chemo will be tomorrow. So happy i can stay on this clinical trial. girls with tree

With all this good news, like i said there are still tumors in my body and i know the rollercoaster ride will continue. However, this was a sign my story is far from over yet. I am writing it. I believe i am healing. With a combination of modern and complementary medicine, a strong will to live, a growing belief in spirituality and pure consciousness, i know i can be an outlier.

This news bought me more time. Like Jagger says, time is on my side.

  2. Amazing!!!!! I am thrilled for you and your family. Thought about you throughout the weekend and was concerned about radio silence, but then feeling encouraged to see some FB posts from you later in weekend and hoping that was a postive sign. Enjoy your precious family and precious life this holiday season. Vibration, love and light!
