Good morning everyone 😊. I know it’s been a bit since I posted anything on here but please know that I read all the posts and keep everyone who needs it; in my prayers. Sometimes I just need to stay in the background and process. I was given the all clear/NED almost a year ago and have had clear scans ever since....until 3 weeks ago. This last scan showed some progression of a small “lesion” in my right lung. Very small indeed but apparently it’s big enough to be a problem. I’ve lost my “NED” status for now but my onc wants to wait and rescan in 8 weeks before rushing back into treatment. Treatment this time would be the trial drug (it’s no longer a trial ....available to everyone yay!) Because the trial is complete and it’s readily available....that would be our best option. Neither me or the doctor knows for sure what’s going to show up on the next scan and like the last 4+ years...waiting is torture. But....I refuse to just sit around worrying about it. If it’s back it’s back and the only thing I can do is exactly what I did the first time. Eye on the ball and faith in God. So that I’m not sitting home stressing, I am about to leave on a week long cruise from NYC to the Bahamas. Nothing helps you cope with crappy news like a beautiful suite on a beautiful ship in beautiful water. My cousin and I embark at 12:30 this afternoon and by 1:30 I plan to be in a lounge chair with a mojito listening to reggae music. I figure by the time we reach the first port off the coast of Florida; I won’t be thinking about cancer at all 😂😂
Have a great weekend everyone and thank you yet again for taking the time to read everyone’s posts. Sometimes you just need to know you’re not the only one...
