More good news

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!

Hugs,

Jim

    Congrats! As someone said
    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.

    Happy for you
    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))))

    Sincerely,
    Liz

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

    Thanks everyone
    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,

    Jim

    Good stuff

    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."
