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. 💕
More on my ED adventure to come….

  1. Hi Amy, I’ve been anxiously waiting for this update and I’m so happy to hear the news! I think about you and pray for you from afar. Thank you for sharing your story. I had recent scans as well and my cancer is 90% gone (after only 3 rounds of chemo)! My large tumor is about 1/4 of what it was and my liver mets are gone and my lymph nodes are all clear. I still have one met on my sternum but that’s it. I just had my 5th round and am going to have one more. Although the journey ahead isn’t an easy one for us, we just have to celebrate these victories.


    1. Thank you so much, Xio 💕I am so happy to hear your news as well!!!!!! You are right, we must celebrate the victories, large and small! A victory is a victory, right?! Sending you love from afar!
