Oh what a happy day. I love Easter. It’s my favorite of all the days of the year.
This one is especially sweet as I got my test results back and I am cancer free as of now!! As with anyone who has had cancer there is always a risk of re-occurrence…but my doctor explains that each check I have that comes back clear increases the chances the it won’t return.
My blood test wasn’t in yet so there might be something that shows up there- but, the thought is now, that it’s all okay.
There still is a question about a lymph node in my neck on the right that was slightly enlarged when I had the ultrasound. We think at this point that it is likely because I had a cold at the time of the ultrasound. I will have to have another ultrasound and blood work up this fall but I’m okay with that. No diet and no shots this next time around. That will be awesome to not be driving back and forth to Lacrosse…just one trip.
So after that…FOOD. Glorious food with salt in it for me…and I had an expresso…It was awesome!!
On the way to the appointment we had stopped at the convenience store…here’s what Hubby got.
Yummy junk food….me, I got this!I shouldn’t complain as they actually had something I can eat. I’m going to keep in mind that good food can be found at this particular convenience store and for the most part, I prefer the healthy stuff. It’s so much harder to remember that when I can’t make the other choices because of the diet I still had to be on.
Once the doctor freed me….a roast beef feta sandwich on a pretzel bun…YUM. A sandwich never tasted so good!!
Lots of this happened on the trip over….
No more Mississippi River bridge for me for a bit. I am so happy!!
Over the last 7 months I’ve lost 24 pounds. I don’t really know how it’s happened. I don’t know that I’ve been trying to do anything special…just being a little more conscientious but not with the hope to weigh less…more with the hope to keep my blood sugar in control. My hope is that I can keep it off. I don’t care if more comes off, but I sure would like to stay here….
So as fun as it was to food indulge for a day or two, I need to get things settled down and back to watching things…..
Thanks so much to all of you for the thoughts, prayers and well wishes. They were so appreciated by both Hubby and I. As I came out of the scan room, I found him reading all of the comments you left here on the blog. Reading them really made him feel good too. Thanks for that. Thanks for being there for him too.
