all clear


I got my CT results yesterday - via a very casual voice mail message:

"This is A. calling from the Cancer Centre. Your scans were normal. Thank you."

So there you have it. That's almost three years clean now.

And now on to making two birthday cakes (D. is 7 today), cleaning the house and doing the myriad things one needs to do before going away for a few days.

I'm not living the life I imagined for myself, but I'll take it.

Excellent! I love good news!

For some reason, I just thought of that Ralph Waldo Emerson quote:

"To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded."

Laurie, you have succeeded. It may not be the life you imagined for yourself, but you have won my respect . . . and I bet that you have made many people breathe easier.

Woo! Something so profound in such a mundane message.

Wonder how that person felt leaving the message? Must've been one of the perks of the job.

Nat said...

Glad to hear it. It's almost have if they feel it's become routine for you to get these results.

Still great news.

Hi,
I agree with you. No one lives the life exactly the way they imagine. There are differences. But this is definitely a good news from your side, and I hope you are happy about it.

Laurie, I didn't mean to make you cry . . . but I did mean to leave that quote for you because I think it fits you to a "t". May you laugh often and much!
