Saw my oncologist today …

This is a quickie post but I just wanted to let you all know that I saw my oncologist for the first time in a month today. He had my labs in hand and a young medical student in tow. He proceeded to tell her my “quite remarkable story.”. So it was cool to hear those words come from him. I had no idea he recognized the miracle I have been, three separate times now. He couldn’t get over how good I looked and stated I needed to stay on Tamoxifen forever, it was working so well. Of course, i did have on full makeup that he hasn’t seen in months. But perhaps it is the tamoxifen. Or maybe it is the energy work. Or the cannabis. But whatever it is, the proof was in the pudding when he cut me loose for two months and I said that was scary. I asked if I could get markers drawn again at the one month point. He asked why. I told him I always keep an eye on things. He then said I wouldn’t have to keep doing that. That this was not going to get bad again any time soon. From his lips to God’s ears! Still can’t eat, but hey … Other than that and it being at the end of a very long day and being exhausted, I feel pretty damn normal. Uh oh … That could be trouble!
