In the course of ordinary conversation with the oncologist on Tuesday he happened to speak those words, that my cancer is in remission. No one had actually spoken those words to me before, actually used the word "remission." It was surreal to hear it after three months of such intense and rapid diagnosis, treatment, etc. I didn't hear much else that he said, my brain stopped on those words - my cancer is in remission. Who would have thought it could happen so quickly?
So, this is the big announcement, just in case you hadn't already figured it out from the pathology reports: MY CANCER IS IN REMISSION!!!!!! Goal #1 accomplished!
My brother, Steve, has the pleasure of doing a colon prep tomorrow for his colonoscopy on Friday! The risk of colorectal cancer for my immediate family members increased with my diagnosis. This will be Steve's first colonoscopy. Please join us in praying that he will be able to drink all the Golytely Thursday, and that his colonoscopy on Friday will be clear. Thanks!
