Great news today – clean CT scan which means currently no cancer in sight.
No cancer in sight. With this news, I officially move on from the cancer fight. I know that it can return.
I am a realist.
But I will not let it direct or rule my life.
The new question is the pain. My oncologist does not know why I have so much pain still – we are going to try a few things to see if my body is fighting against itself after being assaulted by so many surgeries, drugs and antibiotics in the last year.
For now, I have to embrace the good news of having no cancer in sight in my latest CT scan.
Hopefully we can figure it out.
Pain is exhausting.
Tomorrow is my new normal.
