yes… that’s how my Dr. Raats called me, after receiving the results. And we all had a big laugh of relief with tears running down our faces.
Alwyn took me to the hospital this morning and we both were positive but nervous. After going for my scans and reading all the lovely comments on facebook, it somehow felt to me that the world was standing still for a moment. I couldn’t think or do anything else, just waiting for the call the results have arrived….
I haven’t seen the details yet, they are still writing the report, but they measured the lesions and they are down from 12.7cm down to 4 cm within four months. Dr. Raats said it is an outstanding result. And so do we think of course! I can not describe how I felt in this moment, it is so moving and it feels somehow unreal.
How ever he had to tell me as well, that I will always have to live with cancer cells in my body. That is the dangerous part about it, since it already has spread to my liver. But it is under control and it is diminishing and in the medical language they talk about full remission, but never aboute a complete cure. That is a hard fact I need to learn to live with. And I have to say, yes it is hard, but then again, luckily I am Harder!! It is frightening but I will learn to live and cope with it.
And that’s why I started to enjoy life day by day! To appreciate the wonderful family and friends I have and the beautiful life I am leading. We will always have hurdles to take in life, some smaller some bigger, but they are made for us because we can make it.
Ok my dears, I am of for a little celebration now, and hopefully there will be many more to follow!
Hugs, kisses and all my love,
