Oh, the Places You'll Go

"...And when you're alone, there's a very good chance
you'll meet things that scare you right out of your pants.
There are some, down the road between hither and yon,
that can scare you so much you won't want to go on.

But on you will go though the weather be foul
On you will go though your enemies prowl
On you will go though the Hakken-Kraks howl
Onward up many a frightening creek,
though your arms may get sore and your sneakers may leak.

On and on you will hike
and I know you'll hike far
and face up to your problems
whatever they are..."

We've now left The Waiting Place. And the news, it is good.

It seems that the ovaries were enormous. And there were, indeed cancerous cells in there that are consistent with breast cancer. However, the offending ovaries are now GONE. In the rest of the pelvic area? No cancerous cells seen. Fallopian tubes that were removed? No malignancies. The pelvic fluid that was removed? No evidence of malignant cells. The liver spot? Who knows. It was not biopsied, only observed, and there was no way to tell if it was a dead spot or a live tumor. The last PET showed very little SUV uptake and I think this is the one that Dr. C called the "cold" spot. We'll see for certain on the next PET scan.

So, yeah. I know why I'm crying.
We're going to get this thing. We're going to get this freakin' thing...
DO YOU HEAR ME??

Laced.
Ready.
I'll be hiking again soon...
