I had my scans today - was there forever and had little sleep since I
watched election returns until 1:00am and then woke up at 4:30am with
"scanxiety". My appointment was at 8:00am so I showed up baggy eyed
and sleepy ;).

I'm officially one year in remission now!
My blood pressure was another story but we're gonna work on that.
Heading for a nap - totally zonked here.

Hope we hear more good news this week!

Congrats! As someone said on here before, I wish there was a "like button". (That's FaceBook lingo for those who don't do FB!)

Anyway, relax now and get rested, hopefully your pressure was affected by scanxiety and you'll see it return to normal soon.

Hi Jim,
I'm extremely happy for you buddy! You rest and later when you start feeling less out of it, go and do a happy dance for yourself! Go out and celebrate or do something nice for yourself. ((((HUGS))))

"Scanticipation" of a clean scan. You have not come this far only to be thrown to the floor! Time for a little R&R!

Thank you guys and I should add I am very grateful too.
I think I was running on fumes when I got home though I surely
did give thanks in my heart all the way home :).

My brother in law is making steak for us and I plan on stopping
to get a dessert - probably something CHOCOLATE :).

Hugs and best always to you,

Glad you have that first year clean under your belt. While I have hypertension all the time, I have it spike when going to the oncologist -- a reading once of 190 over 110 ! It is what my IM doctor refers to as "ER blood pressure."

I'm so happy for you, Jim! 1 year, woo hoo!!! What a relief. How often are you checked now?
My husband just had an excellent 3 month check up last week. Next one will be in 6 months.
Take care, Nikki
