I loaded this thread the old fashioned way, from the beginning, and it was wonderful to read some of the voices that are gone or we don't see here often. And from those early days till now, you've gone through a huge positive transformation. The old saying "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger" certainly applies here.

This week I saw a video of Jeremiah reading - he's very good, and he's hooked. If there was one thing I could name that is so important a thing to teach a child, it is to read. From there, all things are possible.

An update?

Oh where to begin?

Jeremiah is now 6 years old and in the first grade. He absolutely loves school and is doing really well. He is reading like crazy, learning to play guitar and loves to play soccer. He is the light of my life to be sure!

I finally almost have my pre-cancer energy back. I don't think I will ever have it all back but it's at a reasonable level now, so much so that I recently accepted a full time position and am loving it. :) I haven't worked in 7 years, at least not outside the home, but it our Pre-cancer, pre-Jeremiah plan was always that one of us would stay home with our child if at all possible, until he was completely settled into school. That time is now and while it is an adjustment, it is one that is going to be incredible once I find my stride! I love the people I work with and the job I have.....finding the perfect way to balance my energy reserve is going to be the icing on the cake!

Life is good and I am ever so thankful.

Love to all,

Michelle

THAT is wonderful news! No wonder you are doing all manner of good things!

Did you know: Hans Selye was diagnosed with an inoperable "fatal" cancer. I heard him lecture in Montreal when he was in his 70s. "I walked out of the doctor's office and thought about all the things I needed to accomplish before I died - and went to the lab." (roughly remembered.) His book, The Stress of My Life, is a good read. Two of his findings have stayed in my mind: It is not the stress that hurts us, it is the way we handle the stress. And "Altruistic self-centredness": taking care of oneself so we are able to take care of others.

You seem to do pretty well on both these.

His cancer never went anywhere. Probably a mis-diagnosis?

I do not have to wait for any test results for this particular check up as it was a manual exam. He takes a look, feels around for any lumps and bumps and does a breast exam too.

I did not talk to him about my anxiety because I know it was completely due to the actual appointment and that it would disappear the second he walked out the door. That is exactly what happened. I will say that I think the level anxiety I was having yesterday (and even the day before) was much higher than normal. If I hadn't had to drive myself there, I would have probably taken some Xanax. When it was time to leave yesterday, my husband walked me to the car, we strapped Jeremiah into his car seat and I just leaned on the car to try and catch my breath...I'm pretty sure I had myself a mini panic attack at that point. I couldn't breathe, cried....gave it a few minutes and when that passed, I got in the car and left. It sucks but what else can I do? I did several minutes of yogic 3 part breaths to settle myself, turned on some music and sang myself silly as I drove down the road.

Yes... Breathe...

Seriously, this is all good news, Michelle... If the docs are thinking every 6 months, that is great...

My mom is a cancer survivor twice (colon some 35 years ago and breast some 15 years ago) and with each she had to be weened off the check-ups... You'll be fine...

I've been having check ups every 2 months since my chemo treatments ended. As it goes, the appointments alternated (one with the GYN/ONC and the other with Hematology/Oncology)...leaving me running but also feeling checked in on. I still go to see my Hematologist every 2 months at my request to have tumor marker levels checked. However, the visit with the Gynecologist Oncologist have been moved to once every 6 months.    Today is the day I will go for that check up. I am finding myself a bit more unnerved than usual and I don't think I like waiting to be checked only twice a year. The appointments aren't fun or comfortable physically but I feel like I've gotten unused to them...if that makes sense.

I just wrote a bunch more and my computer ate it.

Basically, I'm thankful that my doctors are confident enough to spread my appointments out...they know what's going on and I trust they will take excellent care of me as they have done all along.

Breathe. Breathe. Breathe.

It will all be over with in less than 6 hours.

Michelle

Recently I was asked by the American Cancer Society's Voices of Hope Division to share my story for their newsletter. Of course many of you already know the story. Being that in 7 days, I will celebrate being cancer free, I thought you might like to see/read it (again, maybe?). It is brief and as concise as I could possibly make it due to their format. There are also 4 photos.

Next week, I will celebrate my 3rd anniversary by going for a checkup with hematology oncology...keeping a close eye on things continues.
