On Wednesday, while in the ED for chest pain (more on that later), I received a phonecall from my oncologist. Literally, I just got unhooked from my EKG. I told her I was in the emergency department at strong, and she was sorry to hear that, but then asked, “do you want to talk about your scan now? I mean, will that upset you?” And I said “I don’t know, you tell me!”
It did not upset me. It’s by far the best lookin’ scan I’ve had since November, when this whole mess began. Prior ct reports have consistently read “innummerable pulmonary nodules ranging from 5mm to 2 cm”; Tuesday’s scan actually had a number, and they are all “itty bitty” according to Dr. Shayne. Like pin prick small. Like wouldn’t-show-up-on-a-PET-scan small.
I don’t have words to describe how this feels, really. So I’m just trying to soak it up. 🌞🌺🌻
Thank you to everyone who has walked behind me and beside me through this journey. Every text, every phonecall, every happy surprise visit… your support really means the world to me. 💕
