Like Waiting for Santa

Waiting for the doctor to come in and give me my results is like waiting for Santa.  Will this be something I want, like a shiny new pen with my name on it?  Or will it be something I don't want, like a lump of coal?

This morning, I woke up at 6:00AM, immediately wide awake and thinking about how I would be getting my results soon. I wasn't scared or nervous. I was just looking forward to knowing.

Our plan this morning is to get coffee at Electric Beanz. (Mine is an extravagant half eggnog latte, and Lou's is an Italian roast drip.) Then we eat bagels for breakfast at Breugger's.  After that, we zoom up to Duke to see what Santa left in my stocking.


The news is good.  One spot grew (by 3 mm) and the rest basically stayed the same.  And there were no new spots!  That is the best part.

So, we are going to continue leaving me alone.  No more chemo for another two months.  Ooooh, I get to keep feeling good.  Happy dance!  Going to have a Merry Christmas for sure.

My next scan will be on February 7.

Hi Karen!!! Great news, my mm to inches "cheat sheet" says that 3 mm is the same as one tenth of an inch, which seems like very little, especially since nothing else got bigger. Yay!!!! what a wonderful holiday present for you and Lou both!!!! LOve you lots and lots and hope you have a fabulous day tomorrow. xoxo Debbie P.
