Day 113

Cautiously optimistic.

Where cautiously optimist equals feeling like you could run a marathon carrying  big sparkly pom-poms and then sleep for five days because you're so happy and exhausted. 


...preliminary review of my mammogram by the radiologist indicates a 70% reduction in the size of my tumor.  

Which essentially means I am kicking cancer's ass.  

I guess I just threw cautiously optimistic to the wind but whatever.   I'm good with that.  I tend to walk a fine line between optimism and pragmatism which is kind of an unusual combination and it works for me most of the time, but this has been a true test of that.  I can tell you that I am leaning heavily towards optimism tonight!  There were definitely tears of relief today.

So next up it's wait for the official report, bust through two more chemos, then two surgeries (to be scheduled for mid-March) and then I am done!  

Thank you for the time you took out of your day to send positive energy my way.  I am going to snuggle up on my couch, eat some ice cream, kiss my kids, and watch a movie.  Maybe even get a good night's sleep.   

Love to you all, and have a beautiful night!
