I'm emerging out of semi-lurker-dom here. Though I've been an awful contributor, this board is the last thing I read before I go to bed every night, and I've come to love that little ritual.
I just had my 6-month follow-up ultrasound and it was absolutely clean....NED. To refresh memories, I had a DaVinci partial nephrectomy in April for a 12-mm grade 1, stage 2 clear cell. I'll get the results of my bloodwork in a few days (or I'll hear sooner if there is any problem), but everything looks great. I feel quite fortunate. I healed quickly and relatively easily from the surgery (though no rollercoasters this summer, per Icemantoo's advice, though, as I can't stomach them anyway, this wasn't a difficult abstinence) and spent the summer enjoying my 5-year-olds.
In celebration of today's visit, I took the girls Trick-or-Treating and savored every single second of it. It truly is the little things.
On to the next six months.
