I was originally scheduled for a PET/CT with contrast (this allows the CT portion to be diagnostic as well as the PET portion) on Tuesday, July 1 locally in Michigan so I could avoid the travel and time away from my beautiful family. Unfortunately, the scan was postponed until Thursday, which of course, was followed by the 4th of July holiday. st me, I tried using all legitimate avenues of gaining the results, with no luck.
And so, we had a fun-filled day/weekend planned with grandparents, nieces, nephews and neighbors. As hard as this is for someone like me, especially being a part of the generation of now and information always available, we went ahead to heed the advice of friends and family to wait until Monday.
And worth the wait it was!
To top it off, my scans came back CLEAR!!!!!!!!!
NED!!!! I am so unbelievably happy. Tears.
Below are the official results that were sent.
I am still in pain, but who (insert explicative) (go ahead and add another for good measure) cares!! I can deal with that if it means I will live to see my children grow up and if it means I get to grow old with my beautiful and amazing wife. It will need to be addressed, but in time.
I was literally petrified about these results. Absolutely terrified. Thank you, God, for your mercy, healing, and lessons of patience and submission to your will.
Please do not stop the prayers. We have my short interval MRI next week on Tuesday, July 15. This is the never-ending month of scanxiety. My body is exhausted. However, if these scans come back clear, it will be the BEST SUMMER EVER!!
For now, we celebrate this miraculous and amazing news.
My body, as of now, is cancer free!!
I love you, oh so very much. I cannot tell you how impossible this would be without your love, support, and life stories. You. Are. Amazing.
