Thanks yall!

No, I honestly had zero worries about this scan. I figured if anything showed up, there were two things I could do about it: Jack and Shit. :lol:

I feel great. It's simply a privilege to be walking around upright and I'm thankful. I am realistic and understand as a stage 4 lady, I'll probably have a scan that something does show up. But that's not today!

So I'll continue to suck the marrow out of the bone of life and go order a birthday present for Nicholas. My sweet cancer baby (term of endearment here) turns 1 on the 15th. There are so many things that had to go right in order for us both to be here to see his first birthday and I plan on celebrating a whole lot more of them!!
