PET Scan Results

I got a call from Cancer Care at about 3:00 PM this afternoon. The test reults were in and they felt they would like to spare me the torture of waiting for a week.
Here it is: The scan found nothing in my big bump. Nothing lit up (that's good, means no cancer), except a little at the roof of my mouth. They assume this to be inflammation rather than cancer and recommend close monitoring in the future.

This means that for the moment (a couple of months till the next scan) we are done. I will have a meeting with my doctor on Monday and will have a chance to ask any further questions.

I am extremely happy and relieved.

Thank you for all your prayers and positive thoughts!

A weight on my heart lifted when you called. I didn't even know how heavy it had become until it was gone. The word 'relief' doesn't begin to describe how I feel so I can't imagine what you're feeling right now.

I'm so happy about you. You probably don't remember me. We saw each other at Folk Festival with Laura and Alan.
I'm reading your blog since I knew you had cancer.

You are my hero, believe me.
