3 doctors, no problems

In the last 2 days I have had three doctor's appointments. The first was with a new internist yesterday. He gave me the all clear - my general physical exam was just fine. This morning I met with my OB/Gyn for my yearly exam. She says everything appears to be okay. Then I hopped across the street to meet with my oncologist for my 3 month follow-up. Apparently all my blood work was fine and my CEA level (a test for cancer antibodies) was normal.

Normal? Fine? Okay?

I don't even know what to do with those results. I'm fine? But I had a horrible anxiety headache and felt like I was going to vomit all morning and I barely slept last night. Was that for naught? Am I really fine?

Well Hoo-Ya!

Wow...first of all...congratulations! I was only able to read your most recent post and I am so excited for you! I still get butterflies every time I go in for a checkup. Funny...I've never checked for a shared interest of "not having cancer". You're is pretty basic. Funny how normalcy seems like such a big deal after going through chemo, etc.

Thanks for dropping me a note. I'm going to check out the rest of your blog real soon. Keep up the good spirits! :)
