18 Months celebration

Today I am 18 months NED. 

I have found myself a little treat (OK, its a braclet, and maybe a little more than I should be spending, but...) to celebrate; BUT, I can't bring myself to buy it yet, because I am getting my CEA checked and get my results on the 2nd Nov, and then, when all is well, I will purchase my celebration treat. 

You all know how it goes. Celebrate the miles stones with the risk of bad news always on the horizon. 

I was telling Jeff in his post, I am a good 90% positive, but the hardest times for me are at night and the few weeks before getting the results from blood test and scans.

But for now  I am 18 months NED.

Enjoy the braclet, you deserve it and if it makes you smile, why the heck not?  I bought a camera this summer when I was shooting sports.  I had cameras that were good for some things, but for sports there was one that was spot on.  Figured why not?  As I tell people the cost of the camera compared to how it helped me get through the chemo and put my mind in a good place was really nothing compared to one chemo sessions or finding a way to exercise (walked a ton shooting ]) or going to speak to people to work through the mental aspects.  I will be getting my results next month, almost exactly nine months to the day of my surgery.  I my buy a braclet myself (or a lens maybe ;) )  Congrats on th NED

Can't wait to see a picture of that bracelet!  My vote is you purchase it now as a treat for what you have been through.   Just do it!  I doubt you will regret it if it brings you joy.

Congrpats on 18 months.  When Nov. 2 comes around we want to see that bracelet on your wrist.  It's all good.

Go get that bracelet and think positively! Eighteen months! Someday you'll be on here saying it's been eighteen years and giving people more hope.

Don't pass up a chance to celebrate any good moment or milestone, Sue, happy times can certainly be elusive on these roads we travel......Dave

I've always played as being cautiously optimistic about the whole thing.
I don't believe anyone ever stops getting scanxiety. I'm down to 2-3 days at most. 

Keep up the great work and enjoy!!!
18 months NED sure beats 18 months dead! I apologize if my gallows humor offends anyone

My two cents: buy the bracelet just because you're special.
