Last week's Houston trip was a success. Blood work, x-rays, and scans all clear, no evidence of cancer. Except the big scars, right?
There wasn't an immediate rush of relief when I saw the doctor. Well, maybe a little one, but then it takes a few days for it to really sink in. And visiting M.D. Anderson brings back lots of memories. It is a comforting place, but still, it brings you back to some scary times. And you worry about all the people you see and talk to there....
But you can't live like you are sick when the doctor tells you that you are healthy. So you process it and move on, and ease into a comfortable spot with it all. After a few days, I feel calm now, at ease with it. Made a healthy dinner last night, built a nice fire, a little wine, and just relaxed. Pretty good deal.
So, one year down, 40 or 50 to go. I think this gets easier as time goes on....
It's just starting to snow out there, we might get 5" over the next 24 hours. It's very peaceful and pretty outside. Drive careful!
