We are rejoicing because we had the best possible news today. My doctor came into the room with a huge smile on her face. The CT scan showed no cancer! My blood work was excellent, too. The CT scan was of my full torso so everything from the neck down is clear. We expected good news, but honestly, I didn't expect it to be THIS good. We are overjoyed and full of thanksgiving. God is good!
Gayle and Steve met us at the Springfield Clinic and stayed with us throughout the day. Their support means everything. The day was pleasant. After the CT scan we had a few hours before the appointment so we had a delicious lunch in Springfield at a mansion/restaurant called Incredibly Delicious. We went back to the clinic for our 2:30 PM appt. After getting the report from my doctor, Gayle, Bob, and I ran out to the waiting room to tell Steve the good news. We had tears of joy and hugs all around. I'm sure everyone in the room was watching us and silently rejoicing too.
I'll be going to my specialist every 3 months for a CT scan to compare with the scan I had today. I'm a real champ at drinking that orange stuff now. I might hold a record for getting it down quickly--all 40 oz of it.
Thank you, again, for your positive thoughts, prayers, and love. You have been with me through the past 7 months and I appreciate each one of you.
Rejoice in the Lord ALWAYS! I will say it again, REJOICE!
