Good news

 Hello

My Consultant rang me this morning to say that she had good news for me. I had a scan last week and was anxiously awaiting the results.  Apparently I am responding  well to the treatment and some of my lesions are barely noticeable and  the larger one on my liver has shrunk. Apparentlybitsmworkimg well on my bone cancer. All my bloods are very good.  So happy with this news as it seems over the last six months I have had nothing but bad news regarding my cancers.  She rang when I was parking my car and after the conversation ended I burst into tears and punched the air. Goodness knows what anyone thought but I couldn't care less. I managed to get hold of my husband before he flew out of the country for a few days. He said he can go now with an untroubled mind.  Hope you are all as well as can be.

Hello Tinlay

Thank you, was on quite a high for a while, which I haven't experienced in a long time. I can breath for a while now .

Hope you are keeping well.

Great news - we all like that as it gives us all a boost. Have been feeling very nervous about what the results of my 3 monthly scan will show (get them tomorrow) but I will take heart from your good news

Hi

I will be joining the gang thinking of you and sending you positive vibes tomorrow. When I have one of these meetings, I try to set myself a best and worst case scenario. I find it helps limit my expectations and stops me heading down a rabbit hole. Usually the doctors come up with something I haven’t thought of
