Received the mammogram results notification letter in the mail! Even though the radiation oncologist told me the results after verbally consulting with the radiologist, I was waiting until I saw written verification for confirmation.
Now, I feel I can call myself a survivor and accept that I am in remission. It has taken two years. It was in July 2015 when I had the mammogram that detected the tumor.
I still have to have my catheter port removed - that will have to be done under anesthesia. I will ask about it when I see the surgeon, next week. And, there will be regular follow-up visits, of course. But I feel very blessed and thankful, today.
To all of you who kept me in your prayers and thoughts, encouraged me and virtually held my hand as I climbed my mountain, a big, heart-felt, "Thank you".
Today, I am grateful for:
- Being alive
- Having the prayed for mammogram results in writing
- The medical care I have received
- The support of family and friends
- A new lease on life
