Today turned out to be a pretty good day. It had a rough start, but by noon, it had clearly turned itself around.

I got some really good news today. I had my second ultrasound on that ovary today to see what the cyst was doing. And guess what... It dissolved on it's own!! I couldn't believe it. The doctor was thrilled. It was a huge sigh of relief for me. I told the ultrasound lady that she was my new best friend! The reason this was so important was that even though it was small and highly unlikely to be cancerous, no one knew for sure. The fact that it went away means that they now know for sure that it's not... HUGE!!!!

It funny because I considered postponing the appointment because I had so much to do today. I'm so glad I didn't. Going into surgery with that news was a tremendous boost. Now we can say with confidence "there is no metastatic cancer!" woooooooohhhhhhhhhhhooooooooooooo!  I was dancing in my office at work.

Then when I returned from my appointment, I returned to a surprise. Some lovely ladies at work had thrown me a party. I called it my "happy cancer" party. We had ice cream cake, talked some girly stories, and laughed. And they gave me button down pajamas for my recovery. Amazing! I was so touched by their kindness.

By the end of the day, I really really felt that I will beat this cancer. I know I have said it before, but now I really mean it. I am going to beat this thing! I really am. My destiny is laid out ahead. I am meant to survive! :-) So So SO amazing.

I was singing today "i'm gonna beat caannnceeerrr"! AHHHHH how good that feels and how sweet that song!


  1. You are most certainly going to beat the beast that has decided to mess with the wrong person!!!! So thrilled for you that the cyst dissolved on your ovary-what a weight off of your shoulders!!!!!!!!!! Now you don't have to worry about that; you can just concentrate on getting rid of that beast, and recovering!!!!! I am beyond thrilled for you; see, my prayers are working. I have a LiveStrong wristband that I will wear. I will wear it in honor of you. :) You will LiveStrong, and beat the cancer (I should have called it the beast; but I wanted to change it up a bit). I am glad you had a nice day, and a nice surprise at work today too; you deserve everything good coming your way. My thoughts and prayers will continue to be with you-and I'll be with you in spirit on Monday in the OR (heck, I have been there enough myself, I should be an honorary member)!!!!! haha.
