I can’t believe that I am now a 1 year survivor of cancer.
It was July 4 2006 that I was finally diagnosed with ocular melanoma. After 3 years and a few months of â€œwe donâ€™t knowâ€.
We are off to Vancouver on Sunday for my next 3 month checkup.
Not looking forward to the ultrasound.
Not looking forward to the results either.
Although Dr. Paton tells me that the tumor is shrinking, really, thatâ€™s the least of my worries.
Iâ€™m worried about the tumor spreading the cancer cells throughout my body.
Liver, lungs, etc.
In October, the next 3 month checkup, I think Iâ€™m due for a CAT scan or at least an ultrasound of my insides.
Call me â€œcontinually scaredâ€.
But life goes on and Iâ€™m living it.
Weâ€™ve moved to a quiet community where we can feel safe with the kids, like the neighborhood and get back to less worries of lifeâ€™s commitments.
And there is a pub a block away.
Just have to check if itâ€™s close enough for me to connect wirelessly to my computer system.
â€œHey, mind he noise Iâ€™m working here!â€ as I sit in the pub writing my articles.
Life can be great.
Thatâ€™s all for now. See you after my July 23 checkup.
