Last week I had the post chemo PET scan to measure progress. Today I received a call with the results. The most important words that I remember are… “No evidence of… the scan was clear…” So I said to my doctor, ‘not even a wild blueberry?’ his response “NOT EVEN A WILD BLUEBERRY!! ” Of course I told my doctor that sparkle power is the best!! This is the most amazing news!!!! The absolute best way to end 2015.
On January 6 I will have the CT scan for radiation planning. I asked if radiation is still necessary and yes it is to ensure I am totally clear and no cells remain. Radiation will begin about 2 weeks after this scan.
For the last few weeks I have been fairly quiet and dealing with a new side effect, chemo induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN). You know it’s special when they give it an acronym! ha! I have been working on my mental game with this one and broadening the sparkle powers to the nerves as well as cells. I had a short pity party over this since it is greatly annoying to have weak and numb arms off and on throughout the day and night. I am confident that my sparkle energy will heal this issue, it’s just a matter of time.
I am thrilled! What great news to receive to start a new year. 🙂
I sparkle on…one day at a time! 🙂
