today i got the status of how the cancer responded to treatment.

very well, thank you.

my lungs, my abdomen, and the rest of my body are clear. my doctor did remind me that this doesn't guarantee that there aren't teeny tiny cancer cells that don't show up in scans, but he was very pleased with the results. he was witness to the lung biopsy i had in august, and he said there were quite a few nodules hanging out in both lungs, and now there are none. there is still work to be done as far as making sure that cancer's ass is properly kicked, but for now, we celebrate.

i don't know what you were all so worried about.
i knew it was going to be fine.

thanks to all my friends, family, and the kind strangers who have reached out and held me up for the past six months. whaddya doin' next year?

ps: hysterectomy jan 27.

..Sandra.. after 9 conversations with Earthlink employees in the Phillipines & India, 5 - 6 more with AT & T, no one has a clue why my DSL has vanished as if poltergeist for the last 10 days, so I write to you from the Newport Beach Mariners Public Libraby. All the while on pins & needles dying to get to your blog somehow I remained comforted by a calm intuition that the results of your scan would be exactly as you have written. So this cold & rainy evening I type with joyful tears as I appear emotionally unstable to my fellow library
patrons, I am so very, very thrilled. You are the Wonder Woman of my life.
Si, se puede.
