I've had my regular 3 month exams and check ups with Dr Mavromatis and Dr Watkins. As well as my PET and CT scans. They have come back clean, however we did have a scare back in May. I went to Mavromatis for an exam and she was worried about my previous scan so I had extra blood work done. It was a little worrisome at the time. She had noticed that where my tumor was, I still have residual tissues lighting up. Which we had known before from Dr Watkins, but she was worried that it wasn't normal and possibly growing back. She went into worst case scenarios with me, talking about more chemo treatments, stem cell transplants, and possibly getting a live in nanny. It was quite nerve wrecking. Because of COVID, Brendan was not allowed at my appointment with me, so when I got home we tried to wrap our heads around all of it. I was anointed, my family was alerted, and we prayed. The next morning I went in and got more blood work done and waited. And waited. And waited. I returned back the following week and was told everything came back in normal to expected range for being in remission. Nothing was elevated or projected to have returned. So turns out, I'm just a rare case -ha! We were told that my mass will most likely be there for the rest of my life at this point since it hasn't completely gone away, but the lit up areas are just clumps of inactive cells and scar tissue! Crisis averted. We opened a bottle of wine, cried (yet another time) out of joy, and thanked God for another blessing and merciful healing. I have another 4 years before I can be decared "cancer free" - I'm 1 of 5 years down!
