Two Year Scan Results: God’s just showing off now! :)

Last Check Mark Checked!!!

Not only was the scan good, it was clean as a whistle!  Yippie!!!!!!!  When you read the radiology reports the radiologists use “unremarkable” as verbage for “normal”, “So normal it’s boring” and “Got anything else more challenging??”  When I heard the part today about the abdomen (the area of greatest interest because of the liver) I had to laugh because it was the shortest line of all and said the magic words…”unremarkable”.  Nothing even worth mentioning…LOVE IT!  I could hug the radiologist for that.  As I thought back to the days when my head would spin just trying to figure out what the detailed measurements of each lesion meant, which ones they were talking about because each radiologist and each scan referred to the different lesions in different ways–Is that one smaller?  How much smaller?  Is that the same one as before or is he talking about the one in the upper left lobe?  Is that scar tissue or is it still active?  To hear one sentence about a area that use to get it’s own page of description and that ended in “unremarkable” was simply magical.  Upon hearing the report I turned to my mom and said “I’ve never been so happy to be so unremarkable in my whole life.”

Me and Mom at Souper Jenny's celebrating the good news! Ha, look above us, God really does have a good sense of humor :)

Many thanks to everyone who sent emails and texts today.  I did “feel the love” and prayers and can’t thank you enough.  I don’t know if I’ll every be able to describe what it’s like, but as I’ve said before, I really can literally feel it.  Everyone should know such love and kindness.  You will never know what that means to me or my endless gratitude.  Bless you all.

Love harder & Live bolder™,

    The love and prayers all of us have sent you are nothing compared with the insight into loving harder and living life bolder that you have given all of us. I know you will celebrate the holidays this year happily knowing that you are totally unremarkable!!!
    Much love to you both.
