The news that I’m in remission from stage IV lung cancer was huge. However, anyone who has had cancer will tell you that one is always looking around corners. It was four years ago this month that I decided to get all my “necessary” medical tests done. A suggestion for prophylactic hysterectomy came first followed by the diagnosis of Triple negative breast cancer. The cancer came first. I had a lumpectomy followed by placement of a Savi port and a week’s worth of twice a day radiation – followed by chemotherapy. I had a mammogram today- four years out. I feel badly because the doctor I’ve been seeing for these check-ups is moving on. He implanted both my radiation port and the port I still have for chemotherapy. However, he once more assured me that this particular cancer usually roars back in two years and after three years the prognosis is pretty good. Well, it’s now four years and my tests were clear. I’ll continue to have mammograms but the results will go to my oncologist and gynecologist and so I have one less doctor to see. The pink tulips I planted the fall of 2012 are coming up and the bulbs and plants I planted last fall are coming up. All I can say is thank you all for your continued prayers and kind thoughts. You’ve all helped me through this.  I’m going to keep on planting.
