Thank you all for your crossed fingers, your prayers, your thoughts, your wishes, your support.
I WIN! Ya heard?
I hardly have words. I’m exhausted. It’s been a long long summer and fall. But I no longer have cancer. Not a trace of it. I’m cured. The surgeon is being somewhat cautious, and wants to look at the pathology slides himself, but the report shows that there’s nothing left.. and that the edges of what he removed have safe margins. I get to keep my ass! I’m still in a fair amount of pain from the surgery, but who cares!? I’ve just beat the odds. 10-15% of people who undergo my treatment end up with my result.. You could load 5 barrels of a six shooter for a round of Russian roulette and have better odds! I’m quite sure that I couldn’t have done it without you all. Thanks. Really.
Now I think I’ll take a nap.
