Super good news today!

I had a PET scan on Tuesday, which is a test to see if my breast cancer has spread to other parts of my body. The results showed that my bones, brain, and lungs were clear, but there was a possible abnormal area in my liver. My oncologist felt that it was probably nothing, but wanted to get another test to follow up. Today I had an MRI of my abdomen which showed that my liver is normal. YEAH!!!!! I feel such relief. When you receive bad news like cancer, it feels like there is never going to be any good news again.

So far I haven't been feeling too bad following the chemotherapy. Mostly a little tired and nauseated, but not enough to throw up or anything like that. After today I am done with appointments and tests for a while, and am looking forward to having a few days to let everything sink in. I am feeling really positive and grateful for all the blessings in my life, especially for my family and friends who have been so supportive.

  1. Thank goodness for hepatic health!! Take care and recover from chemo soon.
    P.S. I vote you wear wigs. You could have a new hairdo every day! One day Katy Perry, the next Pink, then Marilyn Manson, oops I meant "Monroe"!
