a present

Today I received a present in the mail from my oncologist.

The funny thing is, I heard the words but they obviously didn’t register.  Back in May, Dr. Attwell said that he might “cut me loose” on the next appointment if all was going well. And at my last appointment, he said, “See you in five years.”

My present?  An appointment card for my next appointment….in 2012. [And yes, I can do the math, that’s actually 4 years.]

Other than my cancer drug (Letrozole) and the follow up appointment this September for the radiation trial I participated in, I am done with the Cancer Centre.

OMG. Is it really possible??????

Many tears right now. For this and another reason to be made apparent tomorrow.
