This squishy magee is my shadow, my mate, my comforter and my cheerleader! Love him so much! He just knows when I need him! Just like today! I’m completely wiped today after treatment and a huge build up to scan results and to be honest I wasn’t feeling the best about them. There have been big girl tantrums, lots of anxiety related tears and moments of silent thought. No one can ever prepare you for the emotional challenges you face with cancer and the roller-coaster ride that becomes your life! Sometimes I wish that scans didn’t take place so that I didn’t have to constantly live with anticipation of ‘what next’… but in reality anticipation comes hand-in-hand with cancer. But it’s days like today when you are bestowed good news that the build up to “results day” tastes a little sweeter. I am happy to report that I have had further reduction in tumors and no new tumor growth. In fact, so many of my tumors are now non measurable (too small for scans to read) besides two tumors of size! It’s a long way from where I was last May! So this afternoon I’ll appreciate my little squishy’s unconditional love until my bearded lumberjack can come home so we can celebrate this positive step of the ever-bumpy journey with melanoma.
With love, light and gratitude xx
