Good news from Doc.

Well I went for my examination after this last chemo treatment. I told my Dr. that I was SURE it was working this time. I had little to no pain, I wasn't discharging as much as I was in the past.

So he examined me, and said you're right it is better. Then I got dressed and went to his office to talk.

He told me that it was significantly better. I told him like how? So he told me that my mass in my vagina used to be a size of a plum now is a crater.

My whole mass used to be a size of a small canelope or large grapefruit ( I would never ask, didn't want to know), is now the size of a large plum.

My nurse came in and gave me a hug, and told me I should be jumping up and down with excitement. Maybe I was in shock, and not feeling the whole effect. I mean I'm excited, but still think what if, this chemo is working for a while, but after the second round, it won't work anymore. This has happened to me before, you know. I mean I haven't had a significant change like this, but my cancer hasn't been this large before either.

So, I start my chemo treatment again next week, for the next four weeks, then see him again on the fifth week. I don't think I will be "happy" until after the THIRD round and the third examination. If it is still good, or gone by then, then I will be happy.

My blood person, don't know what her title is. She told me, the only bad thing about this is now you will have to go back to work full time. I had to laugh, and say oh yeah, I didn't think of that.

I've been not working full time since Dec 26th of last year. They already got someone else to do my job. I mean they HAD to. (she starts on Monday) So, technically I don't have a position to go back to. I AM still working part time from home. BUT, when I get back, I have to look for an open position that I can do, and if it is a lower pay grade, I get to keep my pay and my pay grade, until I find a job that is better. So that is good. I just hope, that I will find a position that I can do, and not be an admin job. I don't want to be an admin again. I started as an admin there, for the VP of Procurement, and HATED it. So maybe, I will find something. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Anyway, just had to share my good news from my Dr.

's and ers to everyone....
