always winter

cancer stuff update

Hey folks, 

Just wanted to check in and let you all know that things are finally moving again here. I got some good news on Monday, which is to say that my oncotype came back and there’s no indication that chemo will reduce the chances of a recurrence, so I am off the hook for that (and enormously relieved, honestly). And the Infamous Seroma has healed enough that unless there’s some kind of additional complication, I will FINALLY be having my radiation setup, CT, and simulation on Monday morning.

I had the energy to go for a long walk this morning (about three miles) and it was glorious. Bright, not too cold, and the gusty wind was brisk rather than bitter. I watched it strike hammered rows along the surface of the lake and felt very lucky. 

I also started tamoxifen this week, and I have some feelings about that, oddly enough. I’ll get over myself, though. 

Onward into the future, I guess!
