I cannot believe this day has arrived, I honestly still do not believe it.
Today I had my CT scan. I was so nervous about what the results would mean that I cried immediately afterward. The technician had to console me. Luckily I had an appointment with my social worker immediately after.
So fast forward to later in the day…
I received a text from my chemo nurse asking me to meet her and her friends out at a bar in Providence. She said she had something for me. So naturally because she’s awesome I met her out. When I got there I asked what she had for me. She told me that she had my CT scan results. I figured they must be good if she’s telling me at a bar…
Then she said the sweetest words I could ever imagine hearing:
“Your CT scan results showed no evidence of disease”
I did it.
After all of the tears, the pain, the fear. I have found the light at the end of the chemo tunnel!
This story is not over by any means. The chronicles continue as I head into my next chapter- aftercare. It will still be difficult in its own way and there will still be lingering fear and anxiety but for now I am proud to say that I effing did it! I will keep you posted when I get the OFFICIAL word from my doctor next week of what is to come.
Thank you to everyone that ever reached out, supported me, and sent love in any way. It was that constant stream of optimism and kindness that has gotten me to where I am today.
Love and gratitude
