Three Months to Forget

Hi folks,
It's been a while between posts so I thought I should get my finger out and put in another entry.

I went to the oncologist in Melbourne on the 13th of October. Things look really good for me. I now officially have three months to forget about the fact that I have cancer. I still have not really been told that I am in remission so I have to wait until the 19th of January 2005.

They doc was really pleased with my progress and seemed to think that because the swollen nodes in my neck haven't grown they are probably nothing to worry about. I have a CT scan booked for the 12th of January and the results will be ready on the 19th of Feb. If the scans are clear then I plan on trying not to think about cancer for a while. I will probably still post though. It's good therapy to be able to get your thoughts down on paper. I am sure that I will be able to reflect on how this has changed my life once I have a little distance from it.

Anyway. All feels well with me right now and I am hoping that it stays that way for a while. I am working full time and exercising every day. I try not to eat too much crap and in general am taking better care of myself than I have in a long time.

In Australia we are heading into an absolutely spectacular Spring and everything is growing and flowering and all of the other things that go on in Spring so I guess it is really easy to be positive!!

All the best
