Current life status: content.
Current activity: sitting on the patio, listening to music, watching Ace pounce through dried leaves in the woods.
Current background music: “maybe not” by cat power
Current weather: 75 degrees, sunny, with a light, crisp breeze
Current plans for the day: continue sunning myself, celebrating an engagement of a best friend, & a birthday of another best friend.
I am going to enjoy these moments as best as I can. The content feeling that washing over my mind doesn’t appear often – I’m taking advantage of it’s effect.
I had a blood draw and appointment with my prescribing doctor on Wednesday. My levels are ‘looking good’ (as good as they can be for taking chemo), and she informed me that she doesn’t need to see me for a year! Things have been going my way, and until there’s something that needs her utmost attention, I don’t need to see her as often as I have been.
I’m hoping this is just one of many GOOD step towards a future of not worrying about disease. I have my next scans in Mayo in November, as well as a consultation with an OB that specializes with women who have had cancer and chemo in their body.
So, as for now, I’m relaxing with Ace, without a worry in the world.
