I know all of this and am thankful that I have the opportunity to have good health care, but there is a certain amount of anxiety that goes with all of these tests. There is always the possibility that something will come back as suspicious. Because I don't get any of the results immediately, this generally means a few days of concern. There is just always something in the back of my mind reminding me that the possibility of a recurrence is there. I feel like I breathe a little shallower and walk a little quieter so as to not wake up any demons that might be sleeping inside.
Yesterday I got a call from my oncologists nurse telling me that not only is my bone density holding up, but my MRI came back perfectly normal as did all of my lab work. I took my first normal breath of the week.
Thank you God.
