Doubtless now is the time to ponder, did I do too much... or not enough? And I wonder who keeps a detailed log of such things...
Double dose of Scanxiety for Roy B. in Alabama on March 6. Scope saw the infamous "spots" so biopsies happened. 4 days later he got the joyful ALL CLEAR! Thanks to all from Roy for your prayers and good thoughts on his behalf. He's now 6 years cancer free.
Last month we had an ALL CLEAR Cysto from Julie in Illinois on Feb 13. She has coined an excellent term for the weird feeling we all get just before something we know is routine/unpleasant and will probably be OK - "Scanxiety"
We may have a guest blog post coming this year from a cystectomy/prostatectomy survivor to show there is good news and good life quality (albeit with some struggles) even after radical surgery.
LIFE IS GOOD!
My parents were from a generation that feared seat belts. In May of 2013 they were both ejected from their vehicle (my father would have said "thrown clear") and did not survive. People, if you are traveling over 35mph, WEAR YOUR SEAT BELTS!
