I'm basking in the news for now

Postby LindaH » Fri May 31, 2013 4:33 pm

My consultant phoned at 7.30pm last night.....I'd heard he works late.

I was awaiting the results of a CT scan I'd had May 17th. My hubby took the call, I was shaking too much. The news was.....the tumour in my Pancreas and liver was REDUCING.

I am over the moon. It's something I never thought would happen. Steve (hubby) didn't ask by how much, but to be honest anything is nothing short of a miracle when at Christmas last year the Gastroenterologist didn't even give me until New Year to live.

I know I shouldn't run before I can walk, but I'm basking in the good news as I was convinced the news was going to be bad, that it had travelled into other organs or something along those lines.

Surely this has got to be good news....hasn't it? I'm sort of still shocked and worried I'm making too big a deal out of it as honestly ...luck doesn't come my way very often at all and this is scary.

That is excellent news Linda, I'm really happy for you.

Do you have many more chemo cycles scheduled?
