Celebratory coffee drink the size of my head can only mean one thing...

I've just returned from my annual mammogram and hearing those beautiful words from the radiologist: "Everything looks good, see you next year"!

So I'm celebrating in my usual way, for those of you who remember from past years:  with an extra large Dark Chocolate Iced Blended Mocha from Coffee Bean.  700 calories, according to their website -- and I believe I've earned every single one of them today!

This is now my 6th clean mammogram since completing treatment 4 1/2 years ago, and I pray it continues -- it could be because of the Tamoxifen I take faithfully every day...or maybe, just maybe, these 700-calorie chocolatey, sugary coffee drinks have special cancer-fighting properties? Think my oncologist would buy that...?

I don't do mammograms anymore but perhaps I should take up your chocolate mocha bean drink.  Sounds good!

Iced Mocha's are delicious and worth every darn calorie - you have reason to celebrate...I am holding up my coffee to ‘cheer’ you…

Another year, all clear. Good to hear.

Now chug that drink, wipe the whipped cream off your lips, and get back to work:)

Don't you just think that would make it complete?   Congratulations, congratulations, congratulations Tracy.  I'm right behind you - and even though I too take my Tamoxifen religiously, I chose to think (now) that there are absolutely no cancer cells anywhere anyway.

Great news, Traci!  Enjoy your drink (since it was so big you are probably still finishing it) and ease of mind for a while.  I agree with Suzanne, a little shot of kaluha would be a nice enhancement!

Very Best,

Ha ha, Clementine!  No, I'm not still working on it, but I did nurse those 32 ounces (no joke, they'll really make a 32-ounce drink if you ask) all day!

I'm not much of a Kahlua girl -- but I can totally get behind Frangelico (hazelnut liqueur).  If -- as Victoria was so quick to point out Wink -- I hadn't had to get some work done, I might have sneaked a shot of that!

Hey Traci~ so very happy for the good news! I love to celebrate after a victory!!  Usually it involves a handbag.....& a sugary drink! I too love Frangelico.....hmmm, maybe the "monk" bottle has special cancer fighting abilities???    ;)

My big month is August, I am currently 6 years cancer free as well~ 

Always hoping for another year~

Blessings~ Melanie

So glad to hear of your great news on the mammogram!

I think its success do the 700 calorie iced mocha!! I don't know how you sleep after one of those! I used to get a warm cappachino after my lidocaine infusion and I realized I can't sleep that night!!

Anyway, big congratulations to you!Sealed
